How to watch the Oscars
The 2023 Oscars will air live on ABC from the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles on March 12 at 8 pm Eastern. After experimenting with multiple hosts last year, late night talk show comedian Jimmy Kimmel will return as the sole host to host the 95th Academy Awards. If you already have a cable subscription that includes ABC, you can watch the 2023 Oscars on your TV, on ABC.com or with the ABC app on your smartphone.
Viewers who frequently watch shows on ABC, CBS, NBC, or FOX may want to consider investing about $60 in a TV antenna that receives over-the-air channels. Depending on local availability, you can stream the awards ceremony live on your ABC affiliate with no registration required.
Another solid choice to watch the 95th Academy Awards live without cable is to use a live TV subscription service like YouTube TV, FuboTV, or Hulu + Live TV. All three options offer at least a one-week free trial for new users. YouTube TV’s standard monthly rate is $65 for over 100 channels, and new members currently get $55 each for three introductory months. Fubo TV has over 100 channels and costs $75 per month.
I recommend Hulu + Live TV to anyone looking for a decent amount of entertainment alongside their live TV consumption. The service has about 85 channels. What’s missing in obscure channels you don’t watch all the time, Hulu + Live TV covers ad-supported access to Disney+, ESPN+ and Hulu for $70 a month. For $13 more per month, the bundle can be upgraded to include Disney+ and Hulu without ads.
An additional American Sign Language live feed for the 95th Academy Awards will be broadcast on the Oscars YouTube channel.
Are you willing to watch the award ceremony until it airs? The Oscars are expected to arrive on Hulu for on-demand streaming the following day.
