How to livestream the 2017 ACMAs

For those looking to livestream the show instead of watching on TV, here's how: 

By using CBS All Access, you can watch your local CBS network's broadcast online in real time. Sign up for a free one-week trial of the streaming service here. The plan will also include access to 8,500 episodes of CBS shows. 

After the trial is over, CBS All Access will cost $5.99 per month for limited commercials while watching TV shows on demand. The no-commercial plan costs $9.99 per month. The site notes that commercials will still air while watching live TV on CBS All Access.
