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). **
