Want to watch the 86th Academy Awards but don’t have a TV? You’re in luck, because ABC is streaming the 2014 Oscars online — if you’re already a cable subscriber. Read on for more information on how to access the live stream.
If you subscribe to a cable service in one of eight markets — New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Houston, Raleigh-Durham and Fresno — you can watch the whole thing on the WATCH ABC app or on the “watch live” tab at ABC.com.
If you’re not a cable subscriber, you can still watch the backstage live stream, hosted by reporter Ben Lyons, fashion correspondent Hitha Prabhakar, reporter Chris Connelly and People Managing Editor Peter Castro. “The Oscars Backstage” will go live during the ceremony at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on ABC.
Clips from the show will post on Oscars.com soon after they air on ABC, so if you’re okay with a more fragmented viewing experience, that might be your best bet.
