You don’t need a TV to tune in to live coverage of the U.S. elections results today- and you don’t have to have Hulu or the other live TV streaming service, either. Today, YouTube announced a listing of news organizations that will be broadcasting live elections coverage on its site today- helpful for those who don’t have another way to watch at home, or need to tune in while on the go. There’s also live coverage available on other websites, including Facebook, Twitch, Twitter and elsewhere.
As more people cut the cord with traditional pay TV, YouTube’s reach has been growing when it comes to distributing the news. That’s apparent in the list of available news media organizations that has now decided to broadcast live to YouTube tonight.
For comparison’s sake, YouTube in 2016 reported viewers had invested over 20 million hours watching and rewatching the presidential debates on the site ahead of the U.S. elections. It then pointed spectators to live coverage from a handful of outlets like NBC, PBS, Bloomberg and Telemundo, as well as MTV, the online news show The Young Turks, and an election special from Complex News.
This time around, all the major broadcast networks are participating on YouTube’s platform.
The company says spectators can tune in to watch live election results throughout the evening on the following channels 😛 TAGEND
