Los Angeles, U.S.  – The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences announced that Yahoo! will be the official digital partner for red carpet and behind-the-scenes content surrounding the 65th Primetime Emmy Awards. Yahoo! is the Television Academy’s official online destination to live stream the red carpet, offering the Academy’s Backstage LIVE companion programmes, as well as exclusive streaming content after the LIVE television broadcast.
