Online Streaming Options

Every television channel listed above is available to stream online. Just click on the link of your preferred channel above. For most all the channels, you will need to login first with your cable sign in info.

If you do not have a cable account, see if a family member or friend would be willing to help you out with their info. But for the Presidential Debates, many (if not all) channels should be streaming the event without the need of a login. So pick your favorite channel and see.

** I will update the blog if and when the channels reveal if they will require a login or not. I believe C-SPAN is your best bet though for login-free access (if you don't have a cable package, like myself). **

VP Debate - PLEASE control the debate and let each man speak without Kaine continuously interrupting and talking over Pence. VERY Immature and unprofessional, NOT what we need for a VP.

As usual, the main stream media is saying the liberal Democratic party took the better of the debate. This is an absolute lie; look at it for God's sake! When will the liberal media i.e. NBC, CBS, CNN, ABC tell the real truth? Every American knows the current administration owns the media sources!!! There are too many people directly related to peoples in the current administration to deny this truth. I, for one, am sick of this administration!!! This administration HAS GOT TO GO!!! Years ago, the news was unbiased; not today.
Comcast owns NBC. TBS and Time Warner Cable own CNN. The Walt Disney Company owns ABC. The list goes on and on. There is this thing called the 1st Amendment. It explicitly prohibits a state run media. Just because you disagree with what someone says doesn't mean that it's state run. You also seem to be extremely ill informed of media history. There has never been a time in our nations history - EVER - when the media was not biased. I encourage you to read up on how newspapers saw their role throughout the 18th, 19th, 20th, and 21st Centuries. Modern day news is sheer child's play compared to how things were reported one or two hundred years ago.
