Tonight’s Republican primary debate will be held in Simi Valley, California, at the Reagan Library. The free stream will be provided for the first time at CNN’s website, CNN.com as well as its Android and iOS apps. You will not be required to login in order to watch the debate online. However, cable authentication will be required if you will watch it on Apple TV.
An attempt was made by FOX earlier this year to offer a live-stream, but they encountered technical difficulties which may have been caused by the surprisingly over 24 million people who viewed the debate online.
Fortune wrote that “when 10 Republicans squared off on stage last month, it was hard to say who created more chaos: Donald Trump or Fox News, which badly botched the live stream, and made the spectacle unavailable to millions of viewers.”
Different ads for cable television and mobile viewers will also be shown by CNN, reported by Mashable, in order to generate income from the mobile users that will watch the free live-stream.
Donald Trump, Ben Carson, Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio, Scott Walker, Mike Huckabee, John Kasich, Chris Christie, Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, and Carly Fiorina will square off tonight according to Money.
However, according to Mashable, the live-stream will only be accessible in the US and selected Canada areas.
