It's a clash of the titans as Succession, Yellowstone and Squid Game go head-to-head at the first major film and TV awards ceremony of the year, the 28th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards. In the words of Logan Roy, "This is war!" Follow our guide below as we explain how to watch a 2022 SAG Awards live stream online wherever you are.

SAG Awards live stream 2022

Date: Sunday, February 27

Time: 8pm ET / 5pm PT / 1am GMT / 12pm AEDT

Venue: Barker Hangar, Santa Monica, California

US live stream: TNT / TBS or via Sling TV FREE trial or FuboTV FREE trial

Watch anywhere: try the world's best VPN 100% risk-free

Surprisingly, this is the first time Succession and Yellowstone have been recognized at the SAGs, despite being the two biggest shows on TV. It's painfully appropriate that Brian Cox, Jeremy Strong and Kieran Culkin are all tussling for the same honor, and that Yellowstone is flying the flag for traditional linear TV.

If there is an overarching theme at this year's awards it's family, with House of Gucci, Belfast, King Richard, and The Lost Daughter also in the running for top prizes. Ted Lasso, Cobra Kai, The Handmaid's Tale and the latest James Bond entry, No Time to Die, are other big-name nominees. 

Seeing as there wasn't really a Golden Globes this year, the SAG Awards offers our first proper chance to celebrate the best TV shows and films from the past 12 months. Also, if you've run out of things to stream, something excellent might just catch your eye...

Read on as we explain how to watch a 2022 SAG Awards live stream from anywhere. We've also listed the SAG Awards nominees further down the page.

How to watch 2022 SAG Awards: live stream in the US

Sling TV

The SAG Awards is being shown on both TNT and TBS. So if you have those as part of your cable package, then you're good to go.

Watch 2022 SAG Awards without cable

TNT and TBS are included in the cable-cutting streamer Sling TV's Orange package. Better still, new users can take advantage of the Sling TV 3-day FREE trial to watch the SAG Awards for free.

Sling TV costs $35 a month thereafter and includes 30+ other channels. And as there's no contract, you can cancel before you spend a penny.

A costlier but even more thorough alternative is to get a FuboTV plan, which also includes TNT and TBS, as well as more than 100 other top channels. Its standard plan costs $64.99 per month after a 7-day FREE trial.

How to watch a 2022 SAG Awards live stream from anywhere

Unfortunately, if you try to watch your domestic coverage of the 2022 SAG Awards from somewhere outside your home country, you'll soon find a problem - geo-blocking.

That's where the broadcaster prevents you from watching your usual feed from abroad. It's a common problem for streamers all over the world, but there's an easy solution.

Can I stream the 2022 SAG Awards around the world?

The SAG Awards used to be aired around the world, but last year's show wasn't, and at the time of publication it looks like the 2022 SAG Awards won't be either. 

The only alternative is to use one of the best VPN service providers to tap into coverage from the US, as described above.

The software is generally ideal for this as it allows you to change your IP address and appear to be in a completely different location - and all through a safe, encrypted connection. But do bear in mind that most paid streaming services do require a credit card based in the same country as the service.
