Where to watch the 2020 Presidential debate | SARC

Grab your popcorn and beverage of choice and let’s gear up for the 1st 2020 Presidential debate between President Donald Trump and Former Vice President Joe Biden.

Here’s where you can watch it from anywhere:

Unlike the primary debates, which are televised by a rotating slate of channels, the presidential debates are simulcast across all the major networks and cable news programs. If you have cable or satellite TV, or a live streaming TV service or a Mohu antenna, check your local listings—do those exist anymore?—and you’re good.

In the name of completism, you can find the debate on ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox, PBS, Telemundo, Univision, CNN, MSNBC, and CSPAN. Basically it’ll be harder to avoid it than to watch it.

You can also stream it on those various networks’ sites and/or YouTube channels. If you’re looking for something to bookmark, CBSCSPAN, and ABC News have YouTube streams ready to go. Most of these channels have streaming apps on the major providers: Apple TV, RokuAmazon Fire TVAndroid TVXbox One, and so on.

If you’re more interested in sounds than sights, you can also stick with NPR’s coverage, which you can find on your local station or through the NPR One app.

On Hulu: FOX LIVE

Youtube will also have live streaming as well as Facebook.

The Details…

Location: President Trump and Joseph R. Biden Jr., the Democratic nominee, will meet at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland. The University of Notre Dame withdrew as host because of the coronavirus pandemic.
