Let me paint you a terrifying picture: It’s Sunday night, the evening of the 2017 Oscars, and you’ve majorly psyched yourself up for the show. You planned an epic Oscars-viewing party, complete with prediction cards, champagne, and six bags of Cheez Doodles. (Sorry, but no party is complete without Cheez Doodles.) Once all 31 people you’ve invited to your small-ass apartment arrive, you attempt to turn on your television, and it doesn’t work. Some evil power—Lord Voldemort? your cable company?—has caused your TV to shut down at the time when you need it most. You have 31 tipsy, Cheez Doodle–munching people waiting to watch Jimmy Kimmel make Donald Trump jokes! WTF do you do?!

Don’t panic. You can watch the 2017 Oscars without a television this year, so you don’t have to wait three hours for your cable company to get its shit together. If you have either a computer or smartphone, you can easily access the Oscars broadcast and keep those wasted scoundrels in your apartment happy. (Because if Tom and Kathy don’t find out who wins Best Sound Mixing, things are gonna get ugly.)

Here are all the ways you can watch the 2017 Oscars this year:

  • Television: If by the grace of Meryl Streep your television starts working, the broadcast begins February 26 at 8:30 P.M. ET on ABC. Enjoy your Cheez Doodles.

  • Computer: ABC.com has a live stream this year! (However, you do need a cable login. It’s highly likely that at least one of the friends at your party has cable.)

  • Smartphone: You can access the Oscars live stream via the ABC app. (You still need a cable login, though!)

  • Antenna: If you’re desperate, you can access ABC with an antenna. It’s Stone Age AF, I know, but this is the Oscars! You need to watch Viola Davis say words!

Things just turned from blue to gold, am I right? (Oof, that was cheesy. But awards shows are cheesy, so it’s fitting.) Happy watching!

PS: If you missed a part of the show, highlights—including winner speeches, musical numbers, and more—will be available on abc.com, the ABC app, and for Xfinity X1 subscribers.
