We all are still reeling from the Repulican National Convention 2016 last week, and it is official that Trump is going to be the Republican candidate. Of course, we all knew that was going to happen, and it is pretty obvious that Hillary Clinton will be receiving the official Democratic candidate status. However, if you want to watch it for yourself, you can see the Democratic National Convention 2016 with its speakers, schedule, livestream, as well as how to watch online.
Fortune reports that every major network: NBC, ABC, FOX, CBS, and PBS, will be airing the convention live. This is the scheduled speakers planned for the week, with each broadcast beginning at 4 PM Eastern. Monday will be U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders, Senator Elizabeth Warren, and First Lady Michelle Obama. Tuesday will be Former President Bill Clinton, and Wednesday will be Vice President Joe Biden as well as President Barack Obama. Then, on Thursday, Hillary's daughter Chelsea Clinton will be speaking along with the party nominee Hillary Clinton.
Of course, the Convention is happening without Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Weston, chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee. According to Fox News, she has resigned "following furor over thousands of leaked emails that seemed to show Democratic National Committee members tipping the scales in favor of Clinton during the primaries".
Vox reports that the beginning of drama as there was a rally of Sanders supporters in Philadelphia early Monday afternoon. When Sanders himself urged the crowd to elect Hillary Clinton, he was loudly booed for it.
If you want to watch the Democratic National Convention, you can stream it on Twitter as part of a deal with CBS, according to Recode. Also, CBS will broadcast the CBSN digital feed and you don't need a Twitter account or TV subscription to watch.
There is also a livestream from the Democrats on YouTube. Then C-SPAN will air all the convention proceedings, and there will be a livestream for web viewers. Also, CNN will have their 24-hour coverage of the convention live from Philadelphia.
Facebook is doing something similar as they have a deal with ABC. The stream is going to be free, and the coverage will be the same as ABCNews.go.com, or from ABC News mobile and Apple TV. Even Snapchat will be getting in on the action with stories from their site.
There was a lot of spontaneity with the Republican Convention, it is possible that the Democrats could have something. Most people don't think that Bernie Sanders will "pull a Ted Cruz", but he's been pretty pro-Clinton for the most part. Still, with last week's Melania Trump and everything else that happened, it might be worth checking out.
