How to stream the OSCARS 2022 free online 

The Oscars can be watched via any streaming TV service that offers local broadcast channels, including YouTube TV, Hulu + Live TV, and FuboTV. You can also watch the live broadcast on the ABC website, as long as you sign in with credentials from a pay-TV subscription for a streaming service or cable package.

All of these options require subscriptions; however, most of them also offer trials that will give you temporary access for free. These trials are generally one-time-use only, so you’ll have to decide if this Academy Awards is what you want to spend your freebie on.
