The 89th Academy Awards or, as they’re more casually known, the Oscars airs this Sunday, February 26 at 8:30pm EST.

A lot of us will be tuning into to see if La La Land will in fact sweep the award show and how lots of awards other favorites like Moonlight, Concealed Figures, Fences and Hacksaw Ridge will earn.

Tv set

If you are aspect of the dying breed who nevertheless watches Tv set exhibits on an precise Tv set the place you get precise Tv set channels then you can catch the Oscars on ABC. Purple carpet protection will start off as early as 7pm on the channel with added protection on many networks like E!

On-line with a Tv set subscription 

One thing tells me the selection of people today who will tune in by using an net link is heading to be greater than yrs prior. The good news is there are loads of selections to view online.

First, if you fork out for Tv set but will not be home when the enjoyment starts off or if the spouse and children could treatment a lot less about what Hollywood celebs are staying awarded small gold statue adult males, you have a really straightforward answer offered to you.

ABC is streaming the show reside to all shelling out Tv set subscribers. Just stop by or obtain the ABC app on Android, iOS or Kindle Fireplace devices. Apple Tv set, Amazon Fireplace Tv set, Roku and Android Tv set also have ABC apps. So you can sneak off to your bedroom absent from the spouse and children to view the Oscars in the dark, alone. Boy, which is unfortunate.

Now unfortunately ABC will not be streaming in all places. You are going to have to be in unique areas. So if you reside in “Chicago, Fresno, Houston, Los Angeles, New York City, Philadelphia, Raleigh-Durham or San Francisco” then you are in luck.

Or if you are a DirectTV subscriber then you can stream in “Albuquerque, Boston, Ft. Smith/Fayetteville, Jackson (Mississippi), Kansas City, Milwaukee, Monterey-Salinas, Oklahoma City, Omaha, Pittsburgh, Portland-Auburn (Maine), Savannah or West Palm Seashore.”

But if you reside in Oregon, Rhode Island, Iowa or any other spot not on the listing, ABC streaming is not an option for you.

On-line without a Tv set subscription 

Now if you never have Tv set of any variety then you are heading to have to have some other online selections.

Sling Tv set is a common option these times to view Tv set without subscribing to classic tv. For $20 a thirty day period you can view ABC information enabling you to view the Oscars on several devices such as Apple Tv set.

Playstation Vue is the only other Tv set membership service out there making it the only other online option to view the show. It is a little bit pricier than Sling Tv set at a least of $thirty a thirty day period without an Apple Tv set app. So I’d go with Sling Tv set as the first option.

The Academy Awards air this Sunday at 8:30pm EST hosted by Jimmy Kimmel on ABC.
