The 92nd Academy Awards happening this weekend on 9 February 2020 is certainly one not to miss, with the likes of heavyweights in Joker, The Irishman, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and 1917 fighting for awards across multiple categories, including Best Picture.
However, if you’re outside the US, you’d probably have a hard time catching it live. So to save you the FOMO and the trouble of having to find out who won the next morning, you could always consider a VPN to stream it without hassle.
One of the best ones out there is ExpressVPN. The high-speed VPN comes with stable connection, unlimited bandwidth, complete privacy, as well as a relatively low monthly subscription of US$12.95/month or US$8.32/month if you sign up for 15 months. It also has a considerable amount of reach, with over 3,000 servers spanning across 94 countries.
