The 93rd Academy Awards will honor some of the best films from 2020 and early 2021. The ceremony will be broadcast tonight at 8 p.m. ET. You can watch the show live on ABC through cable or any streaming service with access to the channel.

This year’s event has already made history with its nominations. “Minari” actor Steven Yeun is the first Asian-American ever nominated for a best actor Oscar. “Nomadland” director Chloé Zhao is the first woman of color to receive an Oscar nomination for best director. Zhao joins “Promising Young Woman” director Emerald Fennell in the category, making this the first year two women are nominated for the award.

The 2021 Academy Awards will be the third Oscars in a row to be conducted without a host. The show will still feature a number of celebrity presenters, however, including Rita Moreno, Zendaya, Brad Pitt, and Bryan Cranston.

Unlike previous awards shows during the pandemic, most nominees will be attending the Oscars in person rather than virtually, but venues will be set up in London and Paris for nominees outside the US.

How to watch the 2021 Oscars

The 2021 Oscars will be held on April 25 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC. The show is expected to wrap up around 11 p.m. ET. A pre-show will start at 6:30 p.m. ET.

Owls are a key part of “Harry Potter.”

  • The “Harry Potter” movies are now available to stream through the SyFy channel’s on-demand library.
  • To access SyFy on-demand you can use a live streaming service like Sling or Hulu + Live TV.
  • You can also rent “Harry Potter” movies without a subscription through VOD retailers like Amazon.

TV (small)+ Live TV (small)

For fans of the “Harry Potter” movie franchise, subscription streaming options are surprisingly hard to track down.

As recently as August 2020, the series was streaming on HBO Max. The franchise then made an appearance on NBC’s Peacock in October 2020, but has since left the service. For the time being, you can watch the movies on-demand via the SyFy channel on live streaming platforms like Sling or Hulu + Live TV. That said, it’s not clear how long the movies will remain on the network.

The popular fantasy films take place in the Harry Potter Universe, where wizards and people without magical abilities (muggles) coexist. Throughout the series, viewers follow the protagonist, Harry, and his two friends, Hermione and Ron, as they progress through their formative years at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Along the way, Harry meets allies and enemies, hones his magic, and unlocks his destiny.

If you’re an existing fan or just someone who wants to watch the movies for the first time, we’ve detailed all the “Harry Potter” streaming options below.

How to watch every ‘Harry Potter’ movie

The “Harry Potter” movies are now available to stream through any service with access to the SyFy channel’s on-demand catalog. That said, the films tend to jump from networks like SyFy to platforms like Peacock and HBO Max on a regular basis. As such, it’s not clear how long you’ll be able watch the movies on SyFy.

Live TV streaming services with access to SyFy include Sling TV, Hulu + Live TV, Fubo TV, and YouTube TV.

The cheapest of the bunch is Sling TV’s Sling Blue plan at $35 a month. The live TV streaming service offers a total of 44 channels. On-demand titles from select networks are available as well, including the “Harry Potter” movies via SyFy’s on-demand selection.

TV (small)

Hulu + Live TV, Fubo TV, and YouTube TV also offer the “Harry Potter” movies via SyFy’s on-demand library, but they’re more expensive than Sling TV. Plans for each service start at $65 a month, though they all offer more live channels than Sling.

+ Live TV (small)TV (small)TV (small)

Are the ‘Harry Potter’ movies on Peacock or HBO Max?

The “Harry Potter” films have previously been available on services like HBO Max and Peacock, but the movies are not currently streaming on either of those platforms.

Due to existing streaming deals, Vulture suggests that the “Harry Potter” movies may alternate between Peacock and HBO Max regularly through 2025. As of April 2021, it’s unclear when the movies will be back on either service.

How to rent ‘Harry Potter’ movies

In addition to live TV streaming services, fans can also rent or buy every “Harry Potter” film on a per-movie-basis through digital rental services. Some of these services include Amazon, RedBox, FandangoNow, Vudu, Google Play, and iTunes.

Pricing for the series varies by service, but most of the movies start at $4 to rent or $15 to buy.

March is upon us, and you know what that means. The sports community – and the sports betting community – are gearing up for this year’s edition of March Madness, the annual NCAA basketball tournament.

The NCAA has created two safe sites for this years men’s and women’s basketball tournaments, with 68 men’s teams playing in Indianapolis, Indiana, and 64 women’s teams playing in San Antonio, Texas. The single-elimination tournament will be held over a three-week span to determine which college has the top squad, and which fight song will play as colorful confetti rains down and the champs cut down the nets.

Last year’s tournament was canceled for the first time in NCAA history as the COVID-19 outbreak swelled. With the pandemic still looming, Indiana will limit the normally raucous crowds to 25% of their normal capacity. That said, millions will no doubt be watching remotely with baited breath to see which team will capture the first title since Virginia’s 2019 win.

How to watch March Madness 2021

The easiest way to watch March Madness 2021 – which you likely have already figured out if you’ve got the credentials – is to use the March Madness Live website or streaming app, and sign in with a supported cable or satellite provider. From there, you can stream every game in the whole enchilada.

If you’re reading this article, however, you’re probably saying to yourself, “But I don’t have cable. That’s why I’m here.” Right! Well, there are other ways to watch, so fear not.

Games are being spread across CBS, TNT, TBS, and TruTV, and there are several streaming services that include one or more of those channels. If you want a single service with access to all four March Madness networks, Hulu + Live TV or YouTube TV will be your best bet. Each service costs $65 a month.

If you just want access to some of the channels, we’ve broken additional details on streaming options for each network below.

How to watch the CBS games without cable

As a network station, there are many ways to stream CBS if you don’t already have a cable or satellite package.

Paramount Plus

One of the cheapest ways to get live CBS streaming access is via Paramount Plus. The service offers some exclusive on-demand content in addition to live streaming for plans starting at just $6 a month. You can find more information about Paramount Plus in our full guide here.

Live streaming services with CBS

For people who want a larger assortment of channels to go along with CBS, live streaming services like Hulu + Live TV, AT&T TV, Youtube TV, and FuboTV all have you covered. Crucially, Sling does not offer CBS, so don’t go that route.

How to watch the Turner games without cable

Since TBS, TNT, and TruTV are all Turner networks, they all fall under the same subscription umbrellas. Unfortunately, their availability doesn’t overlap perfectly with CBS, which would have made this guide a little bit simpler and shorter. Alas!

Youtube TV

Youtube TV includes all the Turner networks and CBS, which makes it pretty enticing, but it does run $65 a month. You can get two weeks free up front if you’re new, and you get three simultaneous streams.

TV (small)

Hulu with Live TV

Hulu also offers live streaming with all four networks included. It costs $65 a month, though you can plop down an extra $7 a month to get a bundle with Disney Plus and ESPN+ as well. You can get a week free to start, and you get to watch on two devices at once.

+ Live TV (small)

AT&T TV

You’ll get CBS and the Turner networks with the “base” tier of AT&T TV, called “Entertainment,” though it does run $70 a month. You can watch on three devices at the same time, but there does not appear to be any sort of available free trial.

TV (small)

Sling Blue

Sling has two basic packages: Sling Orange and Sling Blue. The Blue plan offers all three Turner networks, but Orange is missing TruTV. Blue will run you $35 a month, and you can watch three simultaneous streams. A three-day free trial won’t get you the whole tournament, but you could watch a solid slate of games that way. Remember, though: no CBS with Sling.

“The Voice” has been a staple of the NBC lineup for nearly 10 years. Now, in its 20th season, the singing competition is back with a new roster of contestants.

The new season kicked off on March 1, and features Kelly Clarkson, Blake Shelton, Nick Jonas, and John Legend as coaches. Like past seasons, the competition begins with the coaches choosing singers for their teams based on blind auditions.

After that, the show will head to the Battles round, which allows coaches to choose two of their singers to face off. If one of the singers wins, they advance to the Knockouts round. Further rounds lead up to a live performance where the final contestants are narrowed down to a winner by a popular vote by viewers.

Here’s how you can follow along with the competition on cable or through live TV streaming services.

How to watch ‘The Voice’

The latest season of “The Voice” premiered on March 1 on NBC. New episodes air Mondays and Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET. You can watch the show live through cable, over-the-air TV, or streaming services with access to NBC. You can also stream the show through the NBC website or NBC app if you have an authenticated pay-TV account.

Outside of live TV options, on-demand episodes of “The Voice” are available on Peacock, NBCUniversal’s streaming service. New episodes are available the day after they air on TV if you have Peacock Premium ($5/month) or Peacock Premium Plus ($10/month). Select episodes are available for free as well.

New members can currently get four months of Peacock Premium for 50% off.

If you miss any performances, you can also download “The Voice” app to catch up with videos. And, during the live performances portion of the season, you can use the app to vote for your favorite singers.

Live streaming services with NBC

If you want to watch “The Voice” live on NBC without cable, you have a few different options.

One of the cheapest services with NBC is Sling Blue. This option costs $35 a month, and includes access to your local NBC channel. If you sign up today, you can get $10 off your first month.

You can also watch shows on three different devices with Sling Blue. So if someone wants to watch “The Voice” on one device while other people in your house stream a different channel, it’s totally possible.

Be aware, however, that NBC on Sling Blue is only available in select areas. You can check to see if NBC is available in your area via Sling’s website.

TV (small)

Locast is another option to stream NBC. The app is a non-profit streaming service with local channels like NBC, Fox, ABC, and CBS in 29 markets across the country. Though the service is actually free to use, free streams are interrupted by periodic donation requests unless you pay the $5 a month donation fee.

Unlike the other services on this list, however, Locast only includes local stations and there are no DVR features.

Streaming Subscription (small)

If you’re looking for more channels alongside NBC and you don’t mind paying more, then YouTube TV, Hulu + Live TV, Fubo TV, and AT&T TV are all solid options as well. Prices range from $65 to $70 a month.

Though these services are a lot more expensive than Sling or Peacock, they each feature at least 65 live channels, making them a better choice for people who want a true cable alternative.

Streaming services with CBS

For easy streaming access to CBS, we recommend Paramount Plus (formerly CBS All Access). The subscription service costs $6 a month for the ad-supported plan, or $10 a month for the commercial-free plan. With that said, the ad-free option still has commercials during live TV. 

Both plans currently include access to your local CBS network in most markets. You can see a full list of supported areas here. Subscribers also get access to a huge library of on-demand shows and movies. You can find more information about the service in our full Paramount Plus guide.

If you want to try Paramount Plus, you can sign up for a one-month free trial. However, if you want to continue watching live CBS through the service in the months to come, be aware that the $6/month ad-supported plan will drop to a new $5/month plan in June. The new ad-supported plan will not include live CBS.

Plus Monthly Subscription (small)

Outside of Paramount Plus, Locast is another streaming option with access to CBS. The non-profit service offers dozens of local streaming channels for free in 29 markets across the country.

On the downside, Locast interrupts its streams with donation requests unless you pay the $5 a month donation fee. Its app is also very limited and it only includes local stations. 

Streaming Subscription (small)

You can also watch CBS on other live TV streaming services, such as Hulu + Live TV, Fubo TV, YouTube TV, and AT&T TV.

Those streaming services cost significantly more than Paramount Plus, however, with starting prices ranging between $65 and $70 a month. On the plus side, they all provide a larger selection of live channels, including other local stations and several cable networks.

If you’re looking for a true cable alternative, and not just a simple method to stream CBS, then it’s worth paying the extra money for one of these platforms.
