Using the Television Academy Viewing Platform

The Television Academy Viewing Platform enables Television Academy members to view "For Your Consideration" programs and performances to prepare for Nomination-Round voting, and Emmy Nominees prior to Awards-Round voting.

Videos can be viewed on the Viewing Platform website: view.TelevisionAcademy.com

You may also view nominees on your iPhone or iPad, AppleTV, Android device, or Roku streaming player.

If you have received a Chromecast, follow the instructions included with it to connect it to your television. You can then cast videos from your mobile device or the website to your TV. Visit chromecast.com/help for even more information.

The Sound and Sound Mixing categories are presented with Dolby 5.1 sound. Click here for specifics about Dolby 5.1 sound on the Viewing Platform.

Questions? The Viewing Platform and Online Voting Helpdesk is 888.300.7159.

Our Helpdesk staff is available from 9:00AM PT through 6:00PM PT Monday through Friday during the nominee viewing and online-voting period (August 7 - August 28).
