Variety describes what to expect:

Returning as hosts of “The Oscars: All Access” are Sofia Carson (“Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists,” Disney Channel’s “Descendants”) and entertainment and sports commentators Chris Connelly, Ben Lyons and Adnan Virk. They’ll be joined by newcomer actor Wesam Keesh (ABC’s upcoming legal drama “For the People”).

“The Oscars: All Access” — which won a 2017 Emmy Award for creative achievement in interactive media within an unscripted program — will incorporate footage from 20-plus cameras placed along the red carpet, backstage and in the audience at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood. In addition, the Academy’s Facebook Watch show page on Tuesday began publishing special “Oscars Insider” behind-the-scenes vignettes leading up to Sunday.

The All Access show is free, but you’ll need credentials to watch the ceremony itself.
