Today is the day: President-elect Donald Trump is now in Washington, ready to be inaugurated as the 45th president of the United States. Whether you were for or against his Election Night victory, today marks an historic day in American politics and the beginning of what is already being called the Trump era.

The festivities have already started, and the major networks are all broadcasting live from today’s event on television, which will include the swearing-in ceremony, performances from Three Doors Down, Toby Keith, and Chrisette Michele, and the inaugural parade. Of course, if you’re nowhere near a television today and you want to watch the ongoing spectacle, there are several ways to tune in:


YouTube is probably the easiest destination for watching the inauguration, as multiple outlets like ABC, NBC, Fox, and Telemundo are all streaming live from the event.


The same can be said of Facebook, with the likes of Fox News, ABC News, and CNN all streaming the inauguration for their followers.


Twitter has partnered with PBS News Hour to stream the inauguration into users’ feeds. The broadcast is scheduled to begin at 11AM ET.

The New York Times

The New York Times is streaming from today’s inauguration, and has even provided an inauguration guide with ongoing commentary and analysis from the ground.

The Washington Post

The Washington Post also has its own live stream from Washington, complete with a Live Chat for those who register.
