If you don’t have a television or are just spending the evening away from it, you still have options.

Streaming Services

DirecTV Now, Hulu With Live TV, YouTubeTV, SlingTV, and FuboTV all offer a livestream of ABC in most markets, and all four offer free trials of their service. The key word there is “most” so make sure your area is supported before you sign up for one. You’ll also need a VPN. If you forget to cancel that free trial, all four run $US40 ($56)/month.

What if I miss it?

If you miss the live broadcast, you’ll be able to catch a recording of it on Hulu on Tuesday though you’ll need a VPN to watch in Australia. It will also be available on ABC’s site and through its app until March 3.
