Oscars 2022: the best apps and websites to watch the Oscar Awards online

We are still in a pandemic, we are in the middle of a war that, if the Covid had not already disrupted the world’s economies enough, is fueling them even more. And it rains mud again in some areas of Spain. The world continues as follows, but on Sunday the grand gala of the 2022 Oscar Awards is held. And that paralyzes everything… At least, in the world of entertainment and Show Business.

This year we also have several Spanish representatives in the race for the golden statuette. On one hand we have the historic double of Penélope Cruz and Javier Bardem, the first time that two Spanish actors are nominated at the same time at the Oscars – she for Almodóvar’s Parallel Mothers and he for Being the Ricardos. And the funny thing is that both already have an Oscar at home, so if they win they would do a second double.

We also have Alberto Iglesias, Almodovar’s fetish composer, which adds his 4th nomination; and Alberto Mielgodirector of the animated short film The Windshield Wiper.

Oscar 2022 schedules live

As usual, the easiest way to see the 94th Oscar Awards Ceremony 2022 is to be subscribed to Movistar +, since the VOD platform has the exclusive rights to broadcast in Spain. In Latin America it will be broadcast on the channels:

  • TNT (102 Movistar TV and 702 Claro)
  • TNT Series (103 Movistar TV and 612 Claro)

The event will begin at 5:00 p.m., Los Angeles time from the legendary Dolby Theater in Hollywood, the 02:00 in the morning in Spain, in the night of Sunday 27 to Monday 28 March.

Alternatives to watch the Oscars 2022 online

If you do not have Movistar+ and you are not going to want to contract it just for the Ceremony, you have another option that is somewhat more complicated, but equally effective. The Oscars ceremony will be broadcast on ABC in services and payment platforms in the United States such as

The good thing is that most have free trials -such as Disney + or Amazon Prime-, so you can subscribe, choose the trial period and not renew it at the end. But there remains a drawback, because what happens if you enter the ABC website right now to see live content? Exactly, you bypass the regional lock because you’re trying to watch it from outside the United States. What can we do? Use a VPN.

A VPN is a virtual private network that keeps your geographical location secret and allows access to websites that have been blocked or censored for not being within your geographical scope. By installing an app that allows us to create them, we can avoid websites and online trackers while accessing American sites. And also to other websites around the world, also having tools that allow us to encrypt our internet connection to protect IP address, browsing history and other personal data when we are online, use applications or connect to WiFi.

Here we put the links to three of these apps that allow you to create a VPN in a simple and fast way with which to bypass the regional protection that a website outside of Spain may have:
