As with the first presidential debate at Hofstra University in Hempstead, New York, the Uproxx News team will be watching tonight’s one and only vice-presidential debate happening at Longwood University in Farmville, Virginia. Beginning at 9 p.m. ET, Sen. Tim Kaine of Virginia and Gov. Mike Pence of Indiana will channel their running mates, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump respectively, for a full 90 minutes of uninterrupted airtime on all major broadcast and cable news channels. Sounds entertaining, no? Maybe exciting enough to lull you from your cord-cutting ways for an hour and a half?
If you’re like most people without a cable or satellite television subscription, then the answer’s probably a no. Which is fine, because aside from CBS, NBC, ABC, Fox, PBS, CNBC, CNN, Fox News, MSNBC, C-SPAN and Univision’s simultaneous broadcast, many streaming options are available for politically inclined cord-cutters. Like the NBC News YouTube page, which will let non-television viewers watch Pence and Kaine duke it out while CBS News anchor Elaine Quijano moderates. In addition, the PBS News Hour, Fox News, Washington Post, Bloomberg Politics and Telemundo YouTube pages will stream the debate.
Channel websites, like CNN.com, will stream their televised broadcasts as well. Otherwise, social media offers two pertinent methods for watching tonight’s meeting between Kaine and Pence. One is a Twitter live stream provided by Bloomberg Politics, which users can access via the website or the app. Facebook Live is the second, which news outlets like ABC News, C-SPAN, Fox News, PBS, The New York Times, CNBC, Telemundo and Univision will all utilize for their online readers and viewers’ benefit.
Remember, the vice-presidential debate airs tonight from 9 to 10:30 p.m. ET. Make sure to keep up with the Uproxx News team and check out the festivities for yourself via one of the many streaming methods detailed above.
