The Oscars are just around the corner. Woohoo!! Los Angeles, ARE YOU READY? Aaah. I don’t know about everyone, but I am a hundred percent sure that there are crazy fans just like me around the world as well. And I definitely cannot contain my excitement. The only hiccup in my way was how to watch Oscars online for free given that I am a cord cutter like many others.
With literally less than two weeks until the drums roll and the curtain goes up, here is a little detail that I have gathered, and would like to share with fans like me, about the biggest night in Hollywood.
The Oscars as we all know are on the 24th of February 2019. As it has been the case for the past 18 years, the award ceremony will take place at the Dolby Theatre, LA. It is literally the heart of Hollywood.
The red carpet for the 91st Academy Awards will be aired prior to the ceremony and those who want a long detailed coverage, they can enjoy it on E! Moving forward, if we talk about how to watch the Oscars, then following are the two official verified channels:
- ABC – For US Audience
- Nine Network – For Australian Audience
Now the thing is that ABC is geo-restricted outside the United States. So for anyone outside, they won’t be able to access it. However, my issue is different as I said. Even though I am in the US only, I am not a regular cable user. I’m hardly home to even use it as much and so I believe that online streaming is the way to go about for me and it is definitely much handier too. Thus, my problem is not a restriction, it is the fact that I don’t have a cable connection and nor do I want to pay for it.
However, a simple solution that I came forth with is via FastestVPN. So to watch the Oscar awards 2019 live online all that I will need to do would be to connect to the Australian server location that will hide my physical location and change my virtual location to show existence in Australia. From there on it’s simple. I will just need to go to the Nine Network website or the 9Now app (which I already downloaded on my phone) and then I can easily watch the Oscars live without any hesitation.
Let me lay the whole process mentioned above in easy steps below:
- Get a FastestVPN account if you don’t have one already
- Download and install FastestVPN app on your device
- Connect to the Australian VPN server
- Download a 9Now app on your device or go to the Nine Network website
- Now live stream Oscars easily from anywhere in the world without the need of any cable subscription
With the nominees already announced in Jan, of course, I am super excited. The Oscars, like always, will not be short of mess, chaos and drama. And what’s that? We already have some drama rolling in starting with the fact that the Oscars have no host this year! Can you believe it? I couldn’t either but the Academy has already confirmed the news! Kevin Hart was supposed to host initially but then as he got immense backlash for his homophobic tweets that were posted eons ago, he dropped out. Hart appeared on Good Morning America to say definitively that he would not be hosting and that he is done talking about the controversy.
You can also watch Oscars on below devices:
- Watch Oscars Awards on Kodi
- Watch Oscars Awards on FireStick
- Watch Oscars Awards on Roku
- Watch Oscars Awards on PS4
It is the first time ever in 3 decades that the show will be host-less and it would be an understatement to say that this caused a stir of emotions ranging from uproar by some, and excitement in others. With so many excellent movies highlighted and so much excellent talent brought forward this Oscars 2019, I am super excited to watch Oscars live online for free from my part of the world!
