ABC will be airing the 2015 Oscars on Sunday at 7PM EST/4PM PST from Dolby Theatre. For those with cable it’s as easy as tuning into ABC to watch the Academy Awards and glean at the stars and their acceptance speeches. However for many of us who have cut the cord, it’s not that easy.
Luckily, ABC is one of the networks that has actually embraced online streaming.
You can access the live stream — of the pre-show, full ceremony and Jimmy Kimmel’s post-show — through the Watch ABC app for iOS available on the App Store.
If you reside in Chicago, Fresno, Houston, Los Angeles, New York City, Philadelphia, Raleigh-Durham or San Francisco, you’re good to stream, no questions asked. Sadly, these appear to be the only locations that streaming will work- tell us if you’re seeing different.
Live streaming is only available if you are a cable or satellite subscriber for any of these TV providers: Comcast, Cablevision, Cox Communications, Charter Communications, DISH, DirecTV, Midcontinent Communications, Verizon FiOS, Google Fiber or AT&T U-verse.
After the ceremony airs live, the broadcast will be uploaded to Watch ABC for viewers to watch on demand for only three days. It will be taken down on February 25, according toMashable.
You can download the Watch ABC app from the iTunes App Store.
