Paramount+ via Amazon

CBS All Access has been re-branded into Paramount+ which you can add via Amazon Prime for Prime Members and can stream the 2021 ACM Awards on CBS online for free in most markets by taking advantage of a 7-day free trial period.

After the 7-day free trial is up you can decide if you want to keep Paramount+ to watch future sports games and endless other entertainment offerings for $5.99 a month (with commercials) or $9.99 a month (commercial free), or cancel before the trial expires.

If you don’t have Amazon Prime yet, sign-up for a 30-day Prime free trial or a six-month free trial if you’re a student, then take advantage of the 30-day Paramount+ free trial and sports will be at your fingertips or voice by saying “Alexa, basketball on Paramount Plus.”

Paramount+ Direct

Another way to watch the 2021 ACM Awards online free is with a 30-day free trial of Paramount+ directly from Paramount and CBS. No Amazon Prime account is needed, and this can be used if you’ve already used your Amazon free trial.
