Tonight, we’re getting set for one of the most-watched television events since the Super Bowl earlier this year, as Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are set to collide for the first of several Presidential Debates.
The first thing that we should make clear here is that we’re not interested in covering this from a political perspective, and therefore we won’t be. We’re a television news site, so we figure there are a thousand different place that you can go online (at least) for coverage of who won the night, policy, and other discussion points. We’re looking at this in the same way we would any other major televised event, and want to make sure you’re aware of the number of different ways to watch it.
We figure that the primary way in which the debate will be viewed is on television, and luckily all of the major television networks in CBS, ABC, Fox, and NBC will have coverage starting at around 9:00 p.m. Eastern time. (We just put the NBC logo in here as one example of where you can end up watching this.) Of course, you can also count on cable-news networks if you’re looking to also have some added insight into it before and after the fact.
Meanwhile, there is a way that you can also check out the debate below via the PBS NewsHour stream, which is going to start at the same time mentioned above. This is a case where broadcasters want to ensure you have access, given that this is one of the most important elections in history coming up. It may not be must-see TV for everyone, but it certainly is something that will be generating plenty of discussion in the days to come.
