The WATCH ABC service will be available to cable subscribers using Comcast, Cox Communications, Cablevision, Charter Communications, Midcontinent Communications, Google Fiber, Verizon FiOS, or AT&T U-Verse in the following select markets: New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Houston, San Francisco, Raleigh-Durham, or Fresno.

"For instance, if one of your favorite actors wins an award, you can see the great acceptance speech and then on 'The Oscars Backstage' experience follow them to a Thank You Cam where they can give a longer speech," said Karin Gilford, ABC Television Network SVP of Digital Media, in a statement.

The 86th Academy Awards will take place on Sunday, March 2.

Live sporting events, award shows, and other major television programs are finding great success by introducing online viewing - along with added content - to enhance the viewing experience.
