Oscars are just around the corner and the fans are going wild waiting for the glam to take over their screens. Of course, it is impossible for all the fans to see their favorite stars live. But they can definitely enjoy the star-studded event on their screens. You don’t need antennas and cables to satisfy your entertainment needs. You can simply watch Oscars on PS4. Your PS4 serves as a multi-purpose entertainment device. Make the best use of it and watch Oscars on PS4 live!
The official broadcaster for Oscars 2020 is ABC. The downside though is that it ABC is an American channel that caters to the US audience; that too in only certain regions. It is also necessary for such audience to have an active paid ABC account. If you are outside those regions, or outside the US altogether, you can still watch it on PS4 anyway with the 9Now app.
9Now is a streaming service of Nine Network which is an Australian channel. The flipside is that the streaming is only available to those situated in Australia. So if you are outside US and Australia both, you can get rid of this restriction. What a PS4 user needs to do is use a reliable VPN – FastestVPN. This will enable them to enjoy Oscars on PS4. It allows a buffer-free and smooth experience.
