The 2014 Daytime Emmys broadcast will move from a telecast to a netcast. The awards ceremony will not be broadcast on television, but will instead be streamed online.
This year's Daytime Emmy telecast will not be broadcast on television, but that doesn't mean that fans will miss out on the glitz and glamour of daytime's biggest night. According to a report from Deadline
, this year's ceremony will be streamed live over the Internet.
Beginning at 8pm Eastern/5pm Pacific on Sunday, June 22, fans simply need to surf on over to daytimeemmys.net
to watch all the action. An Emmy spokesperson tells soap
that the broadcast will without commercial interruption.
This will mark the first time that the ceremony has been streamed online. For the last two years, the ceremony was broadcast on HLN -- but while viewership was high for the former cable news network, the total number of viewers -- just 913,000 -- was an all-time low for the Emmy telecast.
"We are confident that the expert team we’ve brought on will flawlessly execute an evening that celebrates the outstanding talent being honored and allows fans to be a part of the action," said NATAS chairman Malachy Wienges in a statement.
There are plans in the works to return the ceremony to television in 2015.
