Hulu With Live TV
In select markets, ABC is included in Hulu With Live TV. That means there are 60-plus live TV channels. This is just in addition to Hulu’s extensive on-demand library of TV shows and movies.
If you don’t have it already, once users sign up for Hulu With Live TV, they can view a live stream of the show on their computer through the Hulu website. It can also be seen on their phone (Android and iPhone supported), tablet, Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Echo Show, or other streaming device via the Hulu app.
There’s another option. If it’s not possible to watch the show live, “Hulu with Live TV” has a broad on-demand library. That means after a live show airs, it can still be accessed through this library. This also includes more than 50 hours of Cloud DVR storage. Users have the ability to upgrade to “Enhanced Cloud DVR.” This gives them 200 hours of DVR space and the possibility to fast forward through commercials.
AT&T TV Now
Once known as DirecTV Now, AT&T TV Now provides six different channel bundles. It’s customizable, with viewers being able to choose from a package that provides 45 to 125 live TV channels. As far as the Oscars are concerned, they all include ABC, and live is included in select markets. Not sure you want to commit? Try the “Plus” and “Max” packages for seven days for free before you decide to commit.
Like with Hulu Live, once you have decided to sign up for AT&T TV Now, (or try the free trial) users can watch a live stream of the Oscars on their computer through the AT&T TV Now website. It can also be seen on their phone (Android and iPhone supported), tablet Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast, or other compatible streaming device via the AT&T TV app.
Don’t fret if you can’t watch live. AT&T TV Now — regardless of what bundles is chosen — comes with cloud DVR.
If you’re a fan of YouTube, you might like this option. YouTube TV offers with more than 70 live TV channels. This will include ABC. Live streaming of the Oscars is available in select markets.
Those who have agreed to move forward with YouTube TV can then watch a live stream of the show on through their computer or through the YouTube website. The same capabilities is available through smartphones (Android and iPhone supported), tablet, Roku, Apple TV, Chromecast, Xbox One, or other compatible streaming device via the YouTube app.
One of the most recent memorable Oscars red carpet moments was when Jennifer Lawrence stepped out wearing a dramatic pale pink Dior Couture gown. She wore her hair back and accessorized with a diamond necklace hanging down her back. Lawrence, who went on to win Best Actress for her role in Silver Linings Playbook, famously tripped when she was walking up to receive her award.
“Was that on purpose? Absolutely,” she told reporters. “What do you mean, ‘what happened?’ Look at this dress! I tried to walk up stairs in this dress—that’s what happened. I think I just stepped on the fabric and they waxed the stairs or something. What went through my mind? A bad word that I can’t say. That starts with an F.”
Julia Roberts turned heads in 2001 when she wore a black-and-white Valentino dress from the 1992 couture collection. She took home the Best Actress award that night for her role in Erin Brockovich.
She probably still has the dress. Roberts told reporters she was saving the gown for her daughter, Hazel. “It’s under my bed, in a box,” she told People magazine at the time. “I have this little space in my house that my husband refers to as the heritage collection. Things I go, ‘I can’t get rid of [this], what about Hazel?”
Lupita Nyong’o stunned when she showed up to the 86th Academy Awards in a baby blue, custom-made Prada gown. She went on to win the best-supporting actress Oscar for her role in 12 Years a Slave. “It doesn’t escape me for one moment that so much joy in my life is due to so much pain in someone else’s,” she said in her acceptance speech, referring to the slaves whose story were told in the film. “No matter where you’re from, your dreams are valid.”
A new poll conducted by OnBuy.com revealed that Angelina Jolie’s 2004 satin gown, designed by Marc Bouwer, was the best Oscars dress of all time. More than 3,400 people voted in the poll, according to Ahlanlive.com. Jolie won the poll with 16 percentof the overall vote. Kate Hudson Versace dress, which she wore the year before, came in second place with 14 percent of the vote. Rounding out the top five were the Gucci gown Charlize Theron wore in 2004, Keira Knightley’s 2015 Valentino dress and Beyonce’s 2005 Versace gown.
This may have been the shortest Hollywood awards season in a while, with the Golden Globes and the Oscars separated by only a month. But that doesn’t mean that the season has been lacking drama. The compressed season may have, in fact, only heightened the drama as awards bloggers haven’t had as much time to crunch the numbers and figure out who among the nominees for Best Picture are the favorites and which ones are just happy to be there.
That said, over the course of the past month it’s begun to look like “1917” is the frontrunner for the big award with Korean darling “Parasite” right on its heels. But the last few years have been absolutely full of surprises — five of the past seven years have seen Best Picture and Best Director go to different films. Could we make it six out of eight?
The good news is that, as usual, you won’t need to be settled in front of a TV with a cable hookup or antenna to catch all the festivities. And that’s because when the Oscars ceremony kicks off on ABC at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on Feb. 9, you’ll be able to watch it no matter where you are — assuming you’re at least about to get some kind of internet connection, of course.
ABC’s broadcast of the Oscars will be available for streaming through the standard methods — those being on ABC.com in your web browser, or via the ABC app for mobile devices and streaming boxes like Apple TV, Roku and Amazon Fire. You will, however, need a login for a participating cable provider to view the stream.
Likewise, any streaming TV service that carries ABC — like DirecTV Now, PlayStation Vue, Hulu and YouTube TV — will allow you to stream the Oscars ceremony. All of those services have a free trial for users who have not signed up before.
If you’re also looking for some red carpet action before the show, ABC will also have plenty of that starting at 6:30 p.m. ET/3:30 p.m. PT. And you can watch that red carpet pre-show using the same methods mentioned above. But that’s not even close to the only Oscars red carpet show you can check out
