Where to watch the iHeartRadio Jingle Ball concert for free

Every Christmas brings several traditions that almost everyone experiences: shopping for impossible-to-find presents, traveling to see relatives you barely know or tolerate, watching live sports while digesting unhealthy food, and watching A Christmas Story on a constant, eternal loop.

For some people, it’s watching a bunch of musicians gather to sing holiday tunes and some of their biggest pop hits. While the iHeartRadio Jingle Ball hasn’t been around long, it’s quickly becoming a holiday staple. The 2022 edition promises to be the best yet, with a slate of pop singers, boy bands from yesteryear, and established stars coming together for a concert at New York City’s Madison Square Garden. You don’t need a ticket to attend, as the event will be broadcasted and streamed this year. But where can you watch it?
