We gave these awards under several categories such as Best Product, Best Smartphone, Most Innovative Product and Editor’s Pick of MWC 2018.

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

The ceremony starts at 8 pm ET / 5 pm PT.

The 90th Academy Awards show is tonight, Sunday, March 4, starting at 8 pm ET / 5:00 pm PT, with comedian and late-night host Jimmy Kimmel serving as host.

As in previous years, the Oscars won’t be the easiest show to stream online. ABC, which televises the Oscars, will offer a livestream on its website,, and via the ABC app for various mobile and smart-TV platforms.

But in a show of how much ABC still really wants you to watch the Oscars via an old-school TV service, the stream is restricted to people living in specific markets who subscribe to participating TV providers.

Those markets: Chicago, Fresno, Houston, Los Angeles, New York City, Philadelphia, Raleigh-Durham and San Francisco. The provider list includes the major companies: Comcast, Charter Spectrum, AT&T U-Verse, Verizon and DirecTV, as well as YouTube TV.

By the way, you can watch it for free if you have an antenna attached to your TV. Crazy, right?

In addition, DirecTV subscribers in some other markets will also be able to access the stream, according to ABC’s Oscars FAQ. Those are: Albuquerque, Boston, Ft. Smith/Fayetteville, Jackson (Mississippi), Kansas City, Milwaukee, Monterey-Salinas, Oklahoma City, Omaha, Pittsburgh, Portland-Auburn (Maine), Savannah and West Palm Beach.

The broadcast will also be available to stream through a Sling, Hulu Live TV or YouTube TV subscription.

This year, you’ll be able to watch some red carpet and backstage moments through Facebook Watch starting at 6:30 pm ET / 3:30 pm PT. The Oscars livestream, or what Facebook and ABC are calling “The Oscars: All Access,” will be on both The Academy’s page on Facebook Watch and ABC’s Facebook page, as well as on and

ABC is touting that this year “the Facebook community watching the ‘The Oscars: All Access’ live stream may also receive a digital autograph from one of their favorite stars on the red carpet.” We’re not sure exactly what that means, but if you try it out. let us know.

Amazon is also making a play for Oscar coverage. Alexa is prepared to answer any questions you have, like “Who is going to win Best Picture?” and “When are the Oscars airing?” Alexa users can also enable skills for Oscar trivia and challenge each other on past Oscar winners by asking “Alexa, Play Best Picture Oscars.”

One big award to watch: Everyone’s favorite actress, Meryl Streep, is nominated for Best Actress, again. She’s breaking her own record this year with her 21st Oscar nomination.

Happy viewing and may the best Meryl win.

The categories include Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Picture, and vary from time periods like Classic to Contemporary. Each HD bundle is priced at $19.99, allowing those interested to grab four movies for the price of about two.

There are also a few “Under $10” Oscar film categories lined throughout the iTunes Movies store, broken into sections including “Best Original Screenplay” and “Best Adapted Screenplay.” In the list below you’ll find all of the Award Winning bundles, a few films from the Under $10 categories, and some other recent releases on iTunes that received notable discounts this week.
