Ah, the Oscars. The Academy Awards have been a fascinating event in the American film industry for decades now. Directors, producers, writers, sound and picture editors, actors, and actresses gather once a year in the ceremony that will give away the most prominent trophies in the field.
Naturally, and since they are the most widely recognized awards in the movie business, the Oscars generate a lot of worldwide interest. People in the United States can watch the ceremony via cable and satellite TV, but those living abroad can also tune in via live online streaming.
However, there is one catch: most online platforms that offer Oscars’ live stream are geo-blocked to be shown only to people currently in the United States of America. The show is created and produced in US territory, and sponsors and other people behind the scenes prefer that the content is broadcasted only inside the nation that host the event.
Some online streaming channels have acquired broadcasting rights outside of America, but the issue remains: they can only show the ceremony’s live events to people living in their territory.
But don’t panic! If you want to see the Oscars’ live stream from any country, you need to hire a reliable VPN provider with servers in the United States of America or any of the nations with a channel that broadcast the ceremony. In this article, you will learn everything you need to know about VPNs.
