(PCM) The 88th Annual Academy Awards will air this Sunday on ABC and many cord cutters were under the fear that they would be forced to watch dozens of streaming video clips to catch a glimpse of the either the red carpet or the show itself. ABC has now revealed that the entire three-hour Oscar’s telecast will be live streaming via their website for those of us that have done away with traditional cable TV service. It will be available in most markets.
Here’s how to live stream:
Head to ABC’s site and stream it. Just like last year, ABC is streaming it for free (in some markets). ABC only offers livestreaming in Chicago, Fresno, Houston, Los Angeles, New York City, Philadelphia, Raleigh-Durham, and San Francisco. When you go to the website, you will be prompted to fill-in your TV provider credentials.
You can also download the Official Oscar’s App made by ABC and available for download in the App Store, on Google Play, and via Amazon. But again, it only works in the aforementioned cities, and again, will require that you have an account with a TV provider.
The Oscars will air Sunday, February 28, live on ABC at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT and will be hosted by comedian Chris Rock!
