Update: When it comes to the red carpet arrivals, you can watch the SAG Awards live-streaming online on TNT on Sunday, Jan. 29, beginning at 3 p.m. PT/6 p.m. ET. The Associated Press will have its own live coverage here. (You must RSVP by providing your email address.) And at the bottom of this article we’ve embedded a SAG Awards’ live-stream feed of the red carpet arrivals.
Now, much like with the Golden Globes, watching the actual SAG Awards ceremony online will take some trial and error. For now, possible sites where you may be able to watch the SAG Awards online are TV.com (they have a SAG Awards feed page), UStream.com, livestream.com, rentadrone.tv, and Justin.tv. Those websites will quite possibly offer user-generated streams showing the ceremony. Just bear in mind that many of those feeds may be both of dubious legality and poor quality. Make sure to check back for updates.
