Presidential Debates Streaming Live on YouTube [Reminder]By: Josh Wolford - October 1, 2012
Today, we begin the last full month before election day. And as we turn our calendars to October, the first Presidential debate is only a couple of days away.
University of Denver will host the first debate of the season, and it will air across the country at 9 pm ET. Along with traditional broadcast channels, you can also watch the debate live on YouTube.
Google will not only live stream this debate, but will also stream the other two Presidential debates on October 16th and 22nd, as well as the only Vice-Presidential debate on October 11th.
“Throughout the month of October, President Barack Obama and Republican Presidential nominee Mitt Romney will go head-to-head in a series of highly-anticipated general election debates. This year, for the first time, you can watch the debates live and in full on the YouTube Elections Hub, via our partners at ABC News, who will be live streaming all four debates on the ABC News YouTube channel. No matter where you are in the world or how you’ll be accessing the internet, you’ll be able to watch the most important events of the 2012 election on YouTube” they said in a blog post.
Everything is happening on YouTube’s Election Hub, which brought us the party conventions streaming live last month.
YouTube launched the new Elections hub back in August as not only a place for live streaming events, but for election news coverage from a variety of partners, including ABC News, Al Jazeera, BuzzFeed, Larry King, the New York Times, Univision, and the Wall Street Journal.
