Well, awards season is here again and nothing is bigger than “The Oscars.” This Sunday, March 4th, 2018, at 8:00 PM Eastern this year’s 90th Academy Awards show starts. So how can a cord cutter watch without paying for cable TV? Don’t worry, we have you covered.
The best way is with an antenna. Nothing can beat the great HD picture that free over-the-air TV offers. Not sure if you can get ABC? Check out AntennaRecommendations.com. Just type in your address, and it will show you what channels you can get with an indoor antenna and with an outdoor antenna.
So what if an antenna is not an option? While antennas are great, an estimated 20 million Americans live in locations that cannot get ABC with an antenna. The good news is many streaming services offer ABC:
Note: Not every service has every local you may need to test it out to make sure they have ABC in your market.
With Sling TV you will need the Sling TV $20 package plus the Broadcast Extra package a$25 a month. You also need to make sure that ABC is offered in your area.
