Where Can I Watch The 2017 MTV VMAs?

Back in 2016, MTV aired the show on a number of channels which are owned by their parent comapny, Viacom. That ceremony aired on channels including CMT, Comedy Central, Logo, MTV2, Spike, TV Land, Vh1 and all the usual MTV ones, so we're presuming it'll be a similar story for 2017.
