  1. I was worried (being a big Oscars fan) because although I have pay TV I’m not subscribed to movies. I wish they would make it clearer in their magazine when they are giving us a free trial. If it is shown on Free to air TV they tend to edit it and put it on too late. It’s great to record the live version and skip through the ads. The hard part is avoiding the media all day (now including twitter) so as not to find out who won.
