How to Watch the Democratic Convention Online This Week

The Democratic National Convention is a four-day event happening Monday through Thursday this week. The event was supposed to take place in Milwaukee, Wisconsin where Democrats would officially announce former Vice President Joe Biden as the nominee for president. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, however, the convention is being held completely online.

Here's how to watch it

From 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. ET Monday through Thursday, tune into one of several streaming platforms. The DNC website will be airing the official live stream of the event. You can also watch it on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Twitch, as well as on Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, and Roku, which you can find by searching "2020 DNC."

ABC, CBS, NBC, and Fox News will air the second hour of the event, and you can watch the whole thing on C-SPAN, CNN, MSNBC, and PBS.

If you prefer to listen to the speakers, you can ask Alexa to play it by saying, "Alexa, play the Democratic National Convention."
