The 2018 MTV VMas live stream is happening tonight, and it's still insanely difficult to tune and watch it online. However, we're figured out where to go to see it.
MTV Live is the one hosting the Video Music Awards, and you can find the link below. The main MTV site is showing a different livestream for behind-the-scenes video, and that's confusing a lot of people who just want to see 'Jenny from the Block'.
In order to watch JLo and other big performers, you will need to have a cable or satellite provider to log into the live stream. Alternatively, you can watch VMAs online by subscribing to an online video streaming service, including YouTube TV, DirecTV Now, or Sling TV. All of these streaming options, of course cost money, but watching is a lot cheaper than a monthly cable bill.
Here's our beef with the annual MTV VMAs presentation: every year, MTV seems to throw up a live stream on its website that simply shows you behind-the-scenes and crowd reactions to the top performances.
Who wants to see pixelated crowd audience reactions when Cardi B, Ariana Grande, and Nicki Minaj are performing on stage unseen? Only by going to MTV Live where we able to see the full MTV VMAs and their performances.
Watching it on an iPhone or Android phone
The best way to watch the MTV VMas online through a phone is to do it from an app. Whether you have an iPhone or Android phone, point it to the official MTV app.
That's where you'll be able to livestream the 2018 awards. But, again, you'll need your cable credentials handy, or subscribe to YouTube TV or Sling TV.
Just ignore the behind-the-scenes MTV likes to distract you with. According to Twitter, there are many confused watchers seeking the full MTV VMAs.
We'll continue to update this page to point you in the direction of the full MTV VMA 2018 video replay when it goes online. Stay tuned.
