FuboTV is consistently considered the ultimate streaming service for sports fans so it’s hardly surprising that’s the ideal destination to watch Formula E. You’ll need to sign up to FuboTV Pro to get CBS Sports Network which is the exclusive home of Formula E, but from there, you’ll have access to the Formula E live stream along with plenty of sport including the English Premier League courtesy of NBC and USA Network, Fox Sports 1 and 2, MLB Network, NFL Network, and many more. Outside of sports, there’s also Paramount, Bravo, Disney Channel, and many others to enjoy in downtime. Best of all? FuboTV costs from $75 per month but there’s a seven-day FuboTV free trial so if you’re keen to check out just one Formula E race, you can time it perfectly so it doesn’t cost a cent.

Known as one of the best live TV streaming services, it’s worth considering Hulu with Live TV. The service is an excellent option for cord-cutters who don’t want to miss out on sports. It offers access to CBS Sports Network so it’s easy to watch Formula E. There’s also NBC and USA Network for your soccer needs along with dozens of other channels to choose from. Best of all, the $70 per month you pay also bundles in Disney+ and ESPN+. The latter gives you extensive access to sports as well as analysis and the fantastic 30 for 30 documentary series. Alongside that, the best movies on Disney+ are sure to entertain the whole family. The selection even includes Oscar-winning movies like Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.

YouTube with Live TV is an ideal place to check out the Formula E live stream thanks to it being the surprise home of dozens of live TV channels. It’s a little cheaper than some of the competition at $65 per month while providing access to CBS Sports Network (of course) NBC, USA Network, Fox Sports 1 and 2, along with ESPN, Comedy Central, CNN, and many others. It should suit the whole household’s needs with its sports coverage particularly appealing for those looking to watch Formula E online.

If you travel regularly, you may have already noticed that your streaming apps don’t always follow you. Some streaming services offer a limited service depending on the country you’re visiting while others don’t work at all. The best way to circumvent this while abroad is to use one of the best VPNs. That way, you can still watch the Formula E live stream that you’ve already paid for. We recommend signing up for NordVPN. From there, all you need to do is pick a US-based server and you can persuade your internet connection that you’re back home. You also gain better security and privacy so you won’t have to worry about hotel Wi-Fi being unsafe to use. There isn’t an official NordVPN free trial but with a 30-day money-back guarantee, you can give it a go risk-free. It’s good enough that you’ll stick around and sign up to one of the many great NordVPN deals around.

Brooklyn Nets vs. Philadelphia 76ers live stream: how to watch the NBA online
Joel Embiid walks off the basketball court.

On the final day of the NBA regular season, Eastern Conference rivals will square up as the Brooklyn Nets head south to take on the Philadelphia 76ers. The game starts at 1 p.m. ET/10 a.m. PT on Sunday, April 14. The 76ers will host the game inside the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia.

The Nets season ends today after the team failed to qualify for the playoffs. It will be a long offseason in Brooklyn, as the organization needs to decide if it wants to sell off players for draft assets and start a rebuild. Philadelphia, however, will get at least one more week of games in the postseason, whether in the Play-In Tournament or first round. With a healthy Joel Embiid, the 76ers are one of the more dangerous teams in the Eastern Conference.

March Madness 2024: how to watch the 2024 NCAA First Four live stream
Logo for the NCAA First Four.

After a polarizing Selection Sunday, the field for the 2024 NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Championship is set. Sixty-eight teams will compete for a chance to make the Final Four in Phoenix and win a national championship. Before the First Round begins on March 21, eight teams will head to Dayton for the 2024 NCAA First Four.

Four games will be played across two nights to reduce the field from 68 to 64. Think of these games as the play-in round, similar to the NBA's Play-In Tournament. The eight teams competing in the First Four are Wagner, Howard, Colorado State, Virginia, Grambling State, Montana State, Colorado, and Boise State.

Oscars live stream: Watch the 96th Academy Awards for free
A woman dances with a guy in Barbie.

The best films of 2023 will be honored at the 2024 Oscars. Also known as the 96th Academy Awards, the 2024 Oscars will feature some of the biggest and brightest stars Hollywood has to offer, including Margot Robbie, Robert Downey Jr., Emma Stone, Ryan Gosling, Lily Gladstone, Da'Vine Joy Randolph, and more. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will award Oscars in 23 categories, with the top prize being Best Picture. Jimmy Kimmel returns to host for the fourth time.

Oppenheimer leads the field with 13 nominations, followed by Poor Things with 11, Killers of the Flower Moon with 10, and Barbie with eight. Can Oppenheimer complete its dominant awards season run with a Best Picture prize, or can The Zone of Interest or Poor Things pull off the improbable upset?
What channel is the Oscars on?
The 2024 Oscars will air on ABC starting at a new time of 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT on Sunday, March 10. This is a significant change from the regular 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT start time. However, ABC has decided to start the Oscars at 7 p.m. ET so it can air a new episode of Abbott Elementary upon the ceremony's completion at 10:30 p.m. ET/7:30 p.m. PT. This strategy is similar to how the network airing the Super Bowl airs an episode of television following the Big Game.
