For the first time in Oscar history, you can watch Sunday’s award show streaming online from your computer, tablet or smartphone. Horrendous red carpet outfits might seem less offensive to the eyes on a second — smaller — screen.
The Oscars isn’t the first major live broadcast to stream for free. Fox Super Bowl was streamed online for the first time in February 2014 to great success — it was the most-viewed US sports livestream ever.
WATCH ABC’s streaming Academy Awards service is available to viewers with cable subscriptions through Comcast, Cablevision, Cox Communications, Charter Communications, Midcontinent Communications, Verizon GiOS, Googble Fiber or AT&T U-Verse in select major cities, USA Today reports. Nonsubscribers will have access to “The Oscars Backstage,” which will air highlights from the show and behind the scenes celebrity access.
The Oscars, hosted by comedian Ellen Degeneres, will air March 2 at 8:30 p.m. EST on ABC.
