Tonight airs the 2017 Red Nose Day Special, which is an occasion to raise money for people living in poverty all over the world. This year’s edition is hosted by Chris Hardwick and features a reunion of the Love Actually cast, in what many are calling a sequel to the original film. The special airs on NBC from 9:59 – 11:01 p.m. ET/PT, but not everyone can get to a television.

If You Have a Cable Login

If you have access to a cable or satellite subscription that includes NBC, you can stream NBC television live on the network’s website or, in select markets, with the NBC app.

On the Web:

Click here for the NBC stream. If it’s your first time streaming at nbc.com/live, you’ll get a free 45-minute preview before you’re forced to “verify” using a cable login to continue watching. When you click “Verify Now,” you’ll be prompted to click on the tile of your pay-tv provider (Infinity, Fios, DirectTV, etc.) and be directed to a sign-in page, where you must enter a valid user ID and password. You must have access to a cable or satellite subscription that includes NBC programming.

If you have trouble logging in, NBC has an “FAQ” contact form here, where you can submit a “description of your issue.”


With an App (Select Markets)

In several major markets, you can access NBC live TV via the NBC app, which is available to download in the App Store and Google Play. (NBC also has apps for Apple TV, Amazon Fire, Roku and Xbox One.)

Again, you’ll need login info for pay-tv subscription that includes NBC programming. The live broadcast of your local NBC affiliate is available only in the following markets, where the station is owned by NBC: New York (WNBC), Los Angeles (KNBC), San Diego (KNSD), San Francisco / Bay Area (KNTV), Connecticut (WVIT), Miami (WTVJ), Chicago (WMAQ-TV), Philadelphia (WCAU), Washington D.C. (WRC-TV) and Dallas (KXAS-TV).

After launching the app, open the menu and click on the “LIVE” tile in the top left portion of the screen. You’ll have to “enable location services” (find the NBC app under your phone’s Settings, click on it and then click on Location) so the app can see where you are and whether your local NBC station is eligible for streaming.

If it’s your first time using the app, you’ll get a free 45-minute preview before you’re forced to “verify” using a cable login to continue watching. When you click “Verify Now,” you’ll be prompted to click on the tile of your pay-tv provider (Infinity, Fios, DirectTV, etc.) and be directed to a sign-in page, where you must enter a valid user ID and password.
