All roads might lead to Rome, but not all avenues provide you access to watch Donald Trump’s inauguration as the 45th president of the United States of America live this Friday, January 20, 2017. Hence, we have decided to make life easier by curating the internet to bring you the possible ways of watching Donald Trump’s inauguration live through various avenues.
Major TV networks continue to rule the airwaves for the moment, even though there has been an explosion of digital devices all over the world.

In fact, YouTube and Twitter have also worked with different kinds of news outlets so that more than a single angle will be made available to viewers when it comes to live stream coverage.

Those who are not able to tune into the two channels at their respective time slots can always check out the live stream on CBS News’ CBSN, which happens to be a round-the-clock live stream channel of CBS. CBSN will also live stream the night’s inauguration events before that, so do keep a keen eye out for it this evening.
