The Walt Disney Co. broadcast network and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences said Wednesday that they had renewed their domestic TV rights deal for another eight years, keeping the Oscar telecast firmly on ABC for another decade. The previous pact was set to expire in 2020.
ABC has been the exclusive home of the Oscars since 1976.
The new arrangement carries symbolic weight as the 2028 telecast will mark the 100th anniversary of the event.
Financial terms were not disclosed.
