There’s nothing worse than sitting down to watch the Golden Globes, only to realize you don’t know what channel it’s on—or that your cable package doesn’t include this year’s broadcast. Lucky for you, though, we can help you tune in with as little hassle as possible.

But before we dive into the details of how to watch the 2024 Golden Globes, it's worth noting that the annual event has undergone some major changes. Following a huge controversy that prompted stars to boycott the show, the Golden Globes got acquired by Dick Clark Productions, which means it's officially moving to a new network.

Jay Penske, CEO of Penske Media and owner of Dick Clark Productions, said in a statement, “We’re so proud to bring the Golden Globes to CBS to celebrate 81 years of award show history. CBS has demonstrated an impressive 30-year commitment to the Grammys and been instrumental to their long-term success. In CBS we found an ideal partner who understands the value of live entertainment programming and whose multi-platform distribution model is reflective of how global audiences choose to consume content today.”

More changes? Fans can expect to see two new awards categories, including Cinematic and Box Office Achievement and Best Stand-Up Comedian on Television. Plus, comedian and actor Jo Koy will host the ceremony for the first time.
