For red carpet and backstage footage, people will be able to stream through the Oscars website,, or the Facebook pages for ABC and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences. Hosts will include Sofia Carson, Wesam Keesh, Chris Connelly, Ben Lyons, and Adnan Virk.

Things will become a bit trickier if you want to watch the actual awards ceremony, which starts at 5 p.m. Pacific time, 8 p.m. Eastern. ABC is the exclusive TV network for the event, which means you'll need an authenticated cable, satellite, or internet-based TV subscription if you want to watch legally.

Cord-cutters can use services such as Sling TV, YouTube TV, PlayStation Vue, Hulu, and DirecTV Now. In fact if the Oscars are all you care about, you can likely sign up for a free trial and cancel before any fees kick in.

With a subscription in tow, you now have the option to watch via or the ABC News app for iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV. Be sure that you're taking advantage of Apple's single sign-on feature —on iOS devices, available through the TV Provider menu in the Settings app.
