· Pre-Oscars Extras: If you have Xfinity, you can also access some special extras in advance of the Oscars via a curated Oscars destination inclusive of more than 1,500 hours of content, voice-activated Easter eggs (saying “Show me Braveheart” into the voice remote and you’ll hear Mel Gibson’s passionate raying cry), related news from the web) and a total of more than 700 Oscar-winning films.

Watching the Oscars – Sunday, February 26th:
· LIVE Television Broadcast: Tune into ABC on Sunday, February 26th. The exclusive red carpet coverage begins at 7pm ET/4pm PT followed by the awards ceremony at 8:30pm ET/5:30pm PT.
· On your laptop: Go to ABC.com and tune into the live stream (with a cable log in, of course).
· On your smart phone: Download the ABC app and watch the live stream there (also with a cable log in).
· Don’t have a cable subscription? This is a little old-timey, but you can always buy an antenna, since ABC is technically free as long as you have the tools to receive the channel.
· Backstage Access: If you’re an Xfinity X1 subscriber, you will have exclusive red carpet and backstage access directly through the TV starting at 7pm ET.

After the Show:
· Post-Oscars Access: Worried about missing parts of the party or simply want to revisit certain portions of the show? The entire Academy Awards broadcast will be available on demand for a limited time at abc.com or the ABC app. Xfinity subscribers will also have access to highlights from the event, including red carpet interviews, winner speeches, musical numbers, and skits.
