Want to keep up on all the coverage leading up to the votes being tallied plus watch live as our next President is announced… but don’t have cable TV? No problem. Cord cutters have a number of ways we can stay up-to-date on the latest election news, some of them for free and a few low-cost streaming options as well. Here’s a quick rundown of your options (you’ll notice a lot of overlap from our guide on watching the Presidential debates):
Even if you’ve cut the cord, the easiest way to watch the election coverage is still on your TV. A digital antenna should be a cord cutter’s first line of defense where television entertainment is concerned. This will give you the chance to watch the latest news plus Election Night live coverage on nearly all of the local channels (ABC, CBS, NBC, Univision, and more), and it will save you the money of having to pay for any streaming services.
Free streaming service PlutoTV offers live news and clips on multiple channels, including Bloomberg TV and Newsy. You can watch from your computer browser or on the PlutoTV app available on Mac, Windows, Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast, select smart TVs, Android, and iOS.
You can skip the middle man and go straight to Bloomberg TV online to live-stream the latest news. Stream it on your computer, or if you have a Chromecast, cast it up onto your big screen for a more lean-back experience. No Chromecast but still want to watch on your TV? Check out Bloomberg TV on Roku.
