BAFTA Awards 2018: How to watch the BAFTAs on TV or live stream for free online

BAFTA Awards 2018: TV and free BAFTAs live streaming guide

Sunday, February 18 mark the high point of the year for the UK entertainment industry, with the BAFTA Awards 2018 set to take place at London’s Royal Albert Hall. Our guide tells you everything you need to know to watch the BAFTAs on TV and online, including details of how to live stream the BAFTA Awards for free. When are the BAFTA Awards 2018 and what time do they start? Let’s find out.

You’d have to have a pretty bloody good memory to remember a more hotly contested BAFTAs than this year’s instalment of the prestigious film awards, with heavy-hitters like Darkest Hour, Call Me By Your Name, The Shape of Water, Dunkirk, and The Billboards Outside of Ebbing, Missouri, all vying for glory. And, as if there wasn’t enough silver screen drama on display, it’s likely that the ‘Time’s Up’ protest movement will also have a role in Sunday’s ceremonies.

For the first in 10 years, the event won’t be hosted by Stephen Fry, with Joanna Lumley set to assume MC duties, so there’s a a bevy of reasons to want to tune in to the proceedings – and whether you’re plonked out on the couch in front of the TV, or want to stream on-the-go using a mobile device or computer, it couldn’t be easier to watch the 2018 BAFTA Awards live.

This year’s BAFTAs are being shown on BBC One, from 9pm to 11pm GMT. That means that UK TV license holders can stream the 2018 BAFTA Awards for free via BBC iPlayer. Alternatively, the BAFTA Facebook page will also be hosting a live stream.

Here are the quick links you need to get started.


That’s all there is to, enjoy the show!
