How to Watch the Oscars 2024 Around the World

If you are excited to find out who wins the Oscars 2024, want to see what host Jimmy Kimmel brings to this year’s ceremony and experience all the glitz and glamour they bring out in L.A. this Sunday, March 10, you can watch the 96th Academy Awards on TV or online in many countries around the world. Unless, you have one of the rare tickets to attend in person, of course.

As is tradition, ABC will be broadcasting the ceremony in the U.S., along with showing it on abc.com and the ABC app and streaming services that carry ABC, including DirecTVHulu + Live TVVerizon and Sling. The big show kicks off at the new time of 4 p.m. PT/7 p.m. ET.

Plus, keep in mind that Oscar day is the first day of the U.S. switching to Daylight Saving Time this year, meaning clocks in the U.S. are advanced by an hour starting from March 10. So watch out if watching from abroad as some countries don’t change clocks and others do so on different dates. For example, Europe, including the U.K., will change to summertime on March 31 this year.

For the fourth year in a row, China will not air the Oscars. The Academy Awards ceremony will, however, be back on air in the former colony of Hong Kong, along with most major countries and territories around the globe.

So, people living or traveling in other parts of the world will have various ways to watch the red carpet, awards presentations and acceptance speeches.

Here’s The Hollywood Reporter’s guide to where the Oscars will be airing in select international markets. For the full roundup of international networks and streamers showing the ceremony, the Academy has a list here.

For people who aren’t night owls, ITV is lining up a chance to catch up on Monday. “The next day, continue to enjoy awards season, either by streaming the full ceremony over breakfast or with a 90-minute highlights package of the ceremony, airing on ITV1 at 10:45 p.m. on Monday,” the company said.
