How to watch the Grammys on CBS

CBS is a local channel, so there are lots of ways to watch it. You probably already have access if you have a cable TV plan or a live TV streaming subscription.

But if you’re looking for the cheapest way to get local channels and watch the Grammys without cable, consider getting an over-the-air (OTA) antenna. The best OTA antennas range from $25 to $70, and that’s a one-time payment—way better than shelling out $25 to $70 monthly for basic cable.

Pro tip: CBS’s channel number varies by city, even within the same state—it’s channel 2 in New York City, 4 in Buffalo, and 8 in Rochester. To find CBS’s channel number in your region, head over to our CBS guide.
