Watch Oscars 2023: Livestream the 95th Academy Awards From Anywhere

The most prestigious event on the movie world’s calendar takes place today, as the red carpet gets rolled out at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles for the 2023 Oscars.

Talk show star Jimmy Kimmel is the host for the 95th Academy Awards and will be hoping for a far less dramatic night than that of his predecessor, Chris Rock, who was on the receiving end of Will Smith’s now infamous stage-storming assault during the 2022 ceremony.

Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert’s ground-breaking sci-fi hit Everything Everywhere All at Once leads the pack with a whopping 11 separate nominations, with Michelle Yeoh the big favorite to walk away with the best actress award for her role in the movie.

Anti-war epic All Quiet on the Western Front is being strongly tipped to become the first foreign language film to win best picture since Parasite’s triumph back in 2020, while Steven Spielberg will be hoping his autobiographical family drama The Fabelmans can repeat its recent success at the Golden Globes. 

It could also be a big night for Irish cinema, with a quarter of this year’s acting nominees — Colin Farrell, Brendan Gleeson, Kerry Condon, Paul Mescal and Barry Keoghan — all coming from the country, while Emerald Isle tragi-comedy The Banshees of Inisherin is also hotly tipped to win best picture.

Alongside the gushing speeches and glamour, there’s also some highly anticipated musical interludes to look forward to, with Rihanna set to perform her song Lift Me Up from Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, which is nominated in the best original song category. Talking Heads singer David Byrne will also be performing This Is a Life from Everything Everywhere All At Once alongside Son Lux and Stephanie Hsu.

Catch every golden envelope opening by following our guide to watching the Oscars 2023 from anywhere in the world.

Australia: Monday, March 13 at 11 a.m AEDT.UK: Monday, March 13 at 1 a.m GMT. How to watch the Oscars 2023 from anywhere on VPN

So what if you’re traveling outside your home country and want to enjoy the ceremony or want an added layer of privacy for streaming? There’s an option that doesn’t require searching the internet for a sketchy website: You can use a VPN, or virtual private network.

With a VPN, you’re able to virtually change your location on your phone, tablet or laptop to get access to the show. If you find yourself unable to watch locally, a VPN can come in handy. Plus it’s a great idea for when you’re traveling and find yourself connected to a Wi-Fi network and want to add an extra layer of privacy for your devices and logins.

Most VPNs, like CNET’s Editors’ Choice, ExpressVPN, make it easy to virtually change your location. Looking for other options? Be sure to check out some of the other great VPN deals.

ExpressVPN is our current best VPN pick for people who want a reliable and safe VPN, and it works on a variety of devices. It’s normally $13 per month. But you can save 49% plus get three months of access for free — the equivalent of $6.67 per month — if you get an annual subscription. 

Note that ExpressVPN offers a 30-day money-back guarantee.

How to watch the Oscars in the US

The Oscars will be broadcast live on ABC. If you’ve cut the cord (a cheaper option with major perks), you can livestream ABC on most live TV streaming services. Our two favorites are Sling TV and YouTube TV.

You can also stream the show live via abc.com or the ABC app, but you’ll need a login from a cable provider to watch the Oscars.

Sling TV is one of the cheapest live TV streaming providers in the US and the Blue plan includes access to ABC and the Oscars, but only in eight US markets: New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Houston, Raleigh-Durham and Fresno. 

Pricing varies by market. Customers in most of those cities will pay $45 per month, while customers in three of the eight — Fresno, Houston and Raleigh — pay $40 per month. Note that Sling has a half-price deal for the first month, so you could sign up to watch the Oscars then cancel to save.

US residents who don’t live in one of those markets can’t use Sling TV to get ABC and watch the Oscars.

Unlike Sling TV, YouTube TV carries ABC and the Oscars in most US cities. With an excellent channel selection, easy-to-use interface and best-in-class cloud DVR, and at $65 per month, YouTube TV is the best cable TV replacement. Read our YouTube TV review.

How to watch the Oscars in the UK

UK movie fans will need to be Sky subscribers to watch the 2023 Oscars live, which are set to be shown on the dedicated Sky Cinema Oscars channel. Red carpet coverage kicks off at 11 p.m. GMT late on Sunday night, with the ceremony itself beginning at 1 a.m. GMT in the early hours of Monday morning. If you can’t stay awake for that long, highlights will be available later on Sky Max, after the ceremony. 

Now TV

You don’t need a pricey Sky Cinema package to watch this year’s Oscars.

Purchase a Now Entertainment or Cinema Pass from £9.99 a month and you’ll be able to stream all of this year’s ceremony without any long-term commitment.

How to watch the Oscars in Canada


You can watch the 95th Academy Awards in Canada via CTV. The show starts at 5 p.m. PT (8 p.m. ET) on Sunday, with the buildup kicking off on the network at 3:30 p.m. PT (6:30 p.m. ET).

You can also watch the Oscars unfold on the CTV website live or on-demand, though you’ll first need to log in with your cable credentials. 

If you don’t have CTV as part of a cable package, that isn’t such good news, as the network doesn’t currently offer a streaming-only subscription option.

How to watch the Oscars in Australia for free


The great news for film fans Down Under is that you can watch the 2023 Oscars for free on Channel 7 in Australia. The event begins at 12 p.m. AEDT on Monday morning, but live coverage starts an hour earlier, at 11 a.m.

That means the Oscars will also be livestreamed for free on the network’s 7 Plus streaming service, which works across a wide range of devices, including smart TVs, laptops, games consoles, mobile phones, tablets and streaming sticks.

Tips for streaming the Oscars 2023 using a VPNWith four variables at play — your ISP, browser, video streaming provider and VPN — experience and success may vary.If you don’t see your desired location as a default option for ExpressVPN, try using the “search for city or country” option.If you’re having trouble viewing after you’ve turned on your VPN and set it to the correct viewing area, there are two things you can try for a quick fix. First, log in to your streaming service subscription account and make sure the address registered for the account is an address in the correct viewing area. If not, you may need to change the physical address on file with your account. Second, some smart TVs — like Roku — don’t have VPN apps you can install directly on the device itself. Instead, you’ll have to install the VPN on your router or the mobile hotspot you’re using (like your phone) so that any device on its Wi-Fi network now appears in the correct viewing location.All the VPN providers we recommend have helpful instructions on their main site for quickly installing the VPN on your router. In some cases with smart TV services, after you install a network’s app, you’ll be asked to verify a numeric code or click a link sent to your email address on file for your smart TV. This is where having a VPN on your router will also help, since both devices will appear to be in the correct location. And remember, browsers can often give away a location despite using a VPN, so be sure you’re using a privacy-first browser to log in to your services.
