There Are Over a Dozen Ways to Watch the DNC
The Democratic National Convention is officially one week away, and while thousands are flocking to Philadelphia for the week, many are expected to watch from their homes.
In an attempt to draw as many viewers (and potential voters) to the Convention, the Host Committee has released a running list of ways that you can watch the Convention from your living room. Options to watch the Convention range from web streaming to mobile streaming to satellite options and more. Many of the options also include on-demand videos.
Andrew Binns, the Chief Innovation Officer of the Democratic National Convention, said in a statement that the vast options that will be available will help to serve today’s “fragmented audiences.”
“Our vast array of livestreaming options will meet people where they are, because it should be just as easy to watch the convention as anything else,” Binns said. “Whether you’re a cord-cutter, someone on-the-go or sitting in front of the family TV, you can engage with the convention the exact same way you engage with your favorite content on any other day.”
Interestingly, a lot of the options are sites used to stream video games and videos, which may be a move to help encourage younger audiences to tune in. Facebook, meanwhile, is pushing audiences to watch Facebook Live as a way to gain “unfiltered access.”
