78th annual academy awards

it isn't till monday, march 6, manila time (march 5, sunday, 5pm PT/8pm ET, US time), but here's where you can catch all the oscar action—pre, during and post:

mar 6, mon, 6:30am, lifestyle network: "live at the red carpet"
mar 6, mon, 1pm, lifestyle network: "the oscar post-party"
mar 8, wed, 8pm, star movies: "78th annual academy awards" (replay on mar 9, thu, 12:45pm)

RPN-9 usually has the rights to the live coverage every year, but this time we're not so sure. we haven't seen any ads for their "exclusive" coverage, which they usually milk to death, so who knows? their website is dead, and click the city's RPN sked for monday doesn't list an oscar awards anywhere. "entertainment tonight" and "the insider" also have red-carpet coverage but we don't know if ETC will beam them live (ETC doesn't have a reliable website either, or maybe click the city's sked for march 6 is not updated?). so if anyone has any late-date updates, please clue us in!

UPDATE: RPN-9 ended up showing the "live" coverage (actually one hour and a half delayed) at 9:30am (starting with the red carpet), and the replay at 6:30pm.
