How to Watch the Oscars with a VPN

If you’re outside the US, don’t fret. You can employ a VPN to bypass geo-restrictions and stream the Oscars from anywhere in the world. VPNs, or Virtual Private Networks, allow you to connect to the internet as if you’re in a different location, which comes in handy for accessing region-specific content.

Services like ExpressVPN, NordVPN, or Surfshark are popular choices among streamers. After subscribing, download and install the VPN app on your device.

Since the Oscars are broadcasted live on ABC in the United States, connecting to a U.S. server is your best bet. This will give you access to U.S. streaming services that carry ABC.

With your VPN connected, visit a streaming service that offers ABC. Options include Hulu with Live TV, YouTube TV, and AT&T TV Now. Some of these services may require a subscription, but they often offer free trials.

Once set up, you’re ready to watch the Oscars live!
