An interesting first, and potentially helpful first for those away from a TV set Sunday - ABC will stream the Oscars ceremony and preshow this Sunday on "Watch ABC." And yes, one does need to be a subscriber to one of the participating cable providers (which include Optimum, Verizon FiOS, and AT&T U-Verse.) The news release:
The Oscars preshow and full awards telecast will stream live for verified WATCH ABC viewers online and on mobile devices. The WATCH ABC app allows viewers with participating TV subscription services access to 24/7 live viewing of the network, as well as next day on demand access to most series.
