The telecast is set to start tonight (Monday, Aug 20) during 9 p.m. ET with an opening performance from Cardi B. A pre-show is slated to start during 8 p.m. ET. Weirdly, MTV has kept a horde secret.

If you’re a cord-cutter looking to watch a VMAs on your computer, phone, or intelligent TV, we’re here to help. MTV is owned by Viacom, that doesn’t always make it easy to tide a calm though cable, though we do have a few options. I’ve dull adult a best choices below:
- Standalone streaming services: Viacom-owned channels are not accessible on some of a tip streaming services, including YouTube TV, Hulu’s live service, and PlayStation Vue. Fortunately, we can find MTV on SlingTV, DirecTV Now, and Philo TV. Some of those services might be charity giveaway trials, and they’re easy to cancel if you’re not feeling a adore after a few days.
