If you are a music fan (and who isn’t, really?), you will not want to miss the 2017 Grammy Awards happening this Sunday (Feb. 12). With planned tributes to Prince and George Michael, a hotly contested Record of the Year race (Adele vs. Beyonce!) and live performances from pretty much everyone you’d want to see, it’s going to be good, folks. But if you’ve given up your cable for streaming like my family has, you may be wondering how to catch the show, which will air live on CBS.

Enter the CBS All Access streaming service and its free week trial!

If you are like us and won’t have access to the show via basic TV, you can stream the show when you sign up for a CBS All Access account. CBS offers two subscription options, and it appears only the cheaper version—Limited Commercials, for $5.99 a month—offer a one-week free trial. So if you are planning to test out CBS All Access for The Grammys this Sunday, and you decide you don’t want to keep your subscription, make sure you cancel within 7 days or your card will be charged.

The Commercial Free subscription will run you $9.99 a month, if you are looking to stream all your favorite CBS shows without commercial interruptions (though the website notes that “Live TV includes commercials and select shows have promotional interruptions”).
