Where to Watch Oscars 2013 (Live Stream and TV)

Oscars reminder. What Channel Are the Oscars On? (From PolicyMic's Culture Team) – The Oscars 2013 will be on ABC and start at 7 p.m. EST Sunday, February 24. Expect some red carpet coverage. Feel free to tune it right at seven on the dot, but as a PolicyMic associate culture editor, I feel compelled to tell you that you probably don't need to rush to your TV. The good stuff, like the Best Picture award delivery, won't come until much later in the evening. 

Looking for a way to watch the Oscars online? Beginning Sunday night (Feb. 24) at 5:30 p.m. EST we will be live streaming all of the red carpet arrivals.
