How to watch the MTV Movie and TV Awards 2023on May 3, 2023 at 13:37 Tech Advisor


The MTV Movie and TV Awards are some of the most highly anticipated awards in the pop culture calendar.

The show is quite different from classic award ceremonies, dedicating categories to some of the most memorable sections in shows and movies from the past year, including best kiss, best fight and best villain.

If you’d like a lowdown on what is to come (including how to tune in), here is everything we know. 

When are the MTV Movie and TV Awards 2023? 

This year’s awards are due to take place on Sunday 7 May 2023 at the Barker Hangar in Los Angeles. The ceremony will kick off at the following times: 

8pm ET (East Coast US) 5pm PT (West Coast US) 

What TV channel is the MTV Movie and TV Awards 2023 on? 

The clue is in the name – the awards show will be on the MTV channel in the US.

The show will also be broadcast on MTV internationally – Virgin, Sky and BT users have access to MTV with select packages. However, UK readers will have to wait until the day after to watch it, with the ceremony airing on Monday 8 May at the slightly friendlier time of 9pm BST.

If you don’t have access to the MTV channel, then there is another way to watch it.  

What streaming service is the MTV Movie and TV Awards 2023 on? 

You’ll be able to catch the awards over on Paramount+ in the US. This costs $4.99 per month for ad-supported viewing, and $9.99 per month for ad-free viewing. New users can also grab a seven-day free trial.  

Paramount has confirmed that the awards will also be streamed on Paramount+ in the UK, but this won’t be until a so-far unconfirmed later date. Accounts cost £6.99 per month, also with a week-long free trial.

If you’re in the UK and don’t want to wait to stream the awards, then you could always check out our guide for signing up to Paramount+ in the US – you’ll need a VPN and a form of US payment.

Who is hosting the MTV Movie and TV Awards 2023? 

Actress and talk show host Drew Barrymore has been chosen as this year’s host. You can see her announcement below:
