The Democratic National Conference kicks off Monday night online. The coronavirus pandemic forced Democrats to announce their initial plans for a personal event in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to formally nominate former Vice President Joe Biden as the party’s nominee for president. But they still plan to throw an event with prominent speakers, politicians and musical guests for four nights this week.
When is it?
The convention will run from 9pm to 11pm ET from Monday to Thursday, and you can watch all the speakers on a variety of platforms.
How do I look at it?
The official live stream for the event will be available on DNC̵7;s website, but you will also be able to catch it on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Twitch as well. It will also be made available on Apple TV, Roku and Amazon Fire TV, and you can find the power by searching for “2020 DNC.”
ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox News will broadcast the last hour of the conference from 10pm to 11pm, and C-SPAN, CNN, MSNBC and PBS will carry a full two hours each night this week.
If you’d rather just listen to the convention, you can ask your Alexa device to play it as well. Just say, “Alexa, play the Democratic National Convention.” Spotify will collect speeches at the DNC and the Republican National Convention in playlists for people to listen to at the end of each conference day as well.
