2. Where Can I Live Stream the Oscars?

The Academy Awards will be exclusively broadcast on ABC and, though subscribers can also watch using the ABC app. The ceremony will begin at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT and is scheduled to conclude at 11 p.m. ET/8 p.m. PT. (FYI: That’s just a loose time frame, since it probably won’t end until 11:30 p.m. ET/8:30 p.m. PT at the absolute earliest.)

3. What If I Don't Have Cable?

No cable? No problem. You can live stream the Oscars using services like Sling TV, Hulu, Fubo TV, AT&T TV, and YouTube TV. Non-subscribers will need to purchase a streaming subscription or sign up for a free trial. (Pro tip: If you’ve already completed your trial, use a different email address for another seven days.)

4. Will There Be a Red Carpet?

This year’s awards show will take place in-person, so we expect to see a handful of stars stopping for photos. Based on past coverage, we’ll likely be able to watch the red carpet on the ABC site or app starting at 5:30 p.m. ET, or on the Academy's official Twitter from 6:30 p.m. ET. We’re also crossing our fingers that E! will broadcast the pre-show and red-carpet coverage, but we’re still waiting for details on that front.
