Viewers in certain United States TV markets can watch the show through Sling TV, an online streaming service that provides access to select channels for a monthly fee, but offers a free 7-day trial that will allow you to watch the show for free if you sign up. Sling’s Broadcast Extra package, which includes ABC, is available in the Chicago, Fresno-Visalia, Houston, Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia, Raleigh-Durham and San Francisco TV markets.

If you sign up, you’ll have the option to select one of two basic packages for $20 per month once the free trial ends. (You can select both if you want, but selecting at least one is mandatory.) The Broadcast Extra package, which you can add after you’ve created your account, costs an extra $5. Again: If you’re in one of the TV markets listed above and want to watch the show for free, you can do so with Sling’s free 7-day trial.

2. Select either the Best of Live TV package or the Best of Live TV Beta package, each of which costs $20 per month after your free trial is over.

4. Once you’ve created your account, click on the icon next to the “sign out” button in the top-right corner of your screen. Once you’ve clicked on the icon, click the blue “change subscription” link.

5. Click on “Best of Live TV Extras,” then scroll down to the Broadcast Extra add-on and click “add.”

6. Download the Sling app on your computer, and begin watching the show.

There’s also a Sling app for Roku, Chromecast, Nexus player, ZTE and XBox One. Click here for a full list of compatible devices.

The service’s Best of Live TV package and Best of Live TV beta package each cost $20 a month, and the Broadcast Extra add-on costs an additional $5 per month. But if you’re looking for a way to watch the Oscars for free, you can do so with Sling’s free 7-day trial.
