The 43rd Annual Daytime Emmys won't be televised.  Fans, however, will still be able to view the festivities. The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) has teamed up with Periscope's live streaming channel, Parachute TV, to stream segments from the awards show.

The Wrap is reporting Parachute will provide red carpet coverage, as well as showing winners interacting with fans once they head backstage to speak to the press. Parachute TV co-founder Caroline Lesley stated: 

Awards shows are doing an incredible job with live-streaming apps like Periscope and Facebook Live. And giving fans a chance to interact with their favorite celebrities backstage is another great step forward.

Coverage will begin on April 29 at the Creative Arts Emmys. The full ceremony is May 1.
