The 2022 SAG Awards will kick off on Feb. 27 at 8 p.m. EST. The ceremony will air live from the Barker Hangar of the Santa Monica Airport in Santa Monica, Calif. The 2021 iteration of the event went virtual because of the COVID-19 pandemic, but the awards are back in person this year — and they’re embracing a new location as well.

As with most awards shows, the SAG Awards will feature a red carpet before the main ceremony at 5:30 p.m. EST. A pre-show will also be hosted by E! News. The Live From E!: SAG Awards red carpet will start at 6 p.m. EST, giving this year’s nominees plenty of time to show off their outfits before heading inside. Fans can catch their arrivals on YouTube or by watching the red carpet on Peacock.

According to the outlet, Laverne Cox will headline the E! pre-show event with Yvette Nicole Brown also on hand. Naz Perez will offer speculation throughout the event, promising an all-around exciting time before the main ceremony even begins. But where can viewers watch the 2022 SAG Awards when they start?

What channel are the SAG Awards on?

If you’re planning to catch the 2022 SAG Awards when they air, you can watch them on TNT or TBS. Both channels will broadcast the awards show while it’s happening, so Cable subscribers can see it unfold in real time.

According to USA Today, viewers can also watch the event on the TNT and TBS mobile and connected device apps, as well as their websites. Those who can’t tune in on Feb. 27 will also have the option to stream the show on HBO Max on Monday, Feb. 28 — a first for the SAGs.
