How to Watch the Democratic Presidential Debate Online – Live Stream on February 25th

By Gabriela Vatu / February 25, 2020

There is yet another Democratic Presidential Debate scheduled this month, and it will be held in South Carolina. As the debate will seek to help voters figure out who's the best fit for their own political views, we will get to watch the candidates take each other on for a new round. We plan to watch the new Democratic Presidential Debate online, so join us in finding out the best way to do this.

This will be the first Democratic Presidential Debate of the month, and it will be held in Charleston, South Carolina. The debate takes place just days before the South Carolina Primary, which is scheduled for February 29th. This debate will also be the final one to take place before Super Tuesday in early March and other Primary races.

What's really cool about this particular debate is that Twitter will act as a partner, and viewers will be able to treat the questions with a special hashtag. This way, your tweets will have the chance to be chosen by the moderators, and the questions asked during the live debate.

In order for the candidates to qualify for this debate, they need to hit a 10% polling threshold in at least four Democratic National Committee sanctioned polls, or 12% in two South Carolina polls released between February 4th and February 24th. The other option to qualify for the debate is to win one delegate to the Democratic National Convention from the Iowa, New Hampshire, or Nevada primaries.

Who's Going to Participate in the Debate?

The one going to take place in South Carolina is expected to be pretty much the same as the one we saw in Las Vegas. Although the list has not been finalized just yet, here are the candidates that will participate in the South Carolina debate so far:

*There is a chance that Tom Steyer may also qualify for the debate.

When and Where to Watch the Democratic Presidential Debate?

The next Democratic Presidential Debate is scheduled to take place on February 25th, and it will be broadcast by CBS and Twitter. The event will kick off at 8 PM and will last through 10 PM ET.

How Can I Watch the Democratic Presidential Debate Outside of the United States?

If you happen to be traveling outside of the United States this week, then you need to know that there are ways for you to catch up to CBS. We say this because the platforms we just discussed our all geo-blocked, so you won't be able to access them when you're abroad like you do when you are within the borders of the United States. We know this can be extremely frustrating, but there are ways to go about this situation by simply changing your IP address, so you appear to be in the United States rather than another country across the world.

In order to change your IP address, you should use a VPN which can do this for you in a matter of seconds. If you do not know which tool to use, we can recommend ExpressVPN, which is a high-quality service that has thousands of servers all over the world, and some really great privacy features to keep you and your data safe online.

Here's how you can use ExpressVPN to unblock CBS anywhere in the world:

Can I Watch the Democratic Presidential Debate Live on the CBS Website?

This will not be an option for you because, unlike other TV networks in the United States, there is no live stream available on the CBS website. In fact, the live stream that used to be present on the site has been moved to CBS All Access, so the only way to enjoy it is by subscribing to the platform. The alternatives are to subscribe to any of the other live TV platforms we already mentioned. (Note: Another thing we need to inform you about is that CBS is a channel that broadcasts in select markets only, so even when using a live TV service, you may be limited on whether or not you're going to watch the channel. If you subscribed to either Hulu or fuboTV and noticed that CBS is not part of the offering, this may be because of your location. Under these circumstances, we think that you should use a VPN to connect to a server that's located in a different city than you are in so that you will get access to the networks available in that specific location you pick. You can click here to find out more details about how you can use the VPN for this job.)

Can I Watch the Democratic Presidential Debate with a TV Antenna?

Absolutely! This is totally possible because CBS is a channel that continues to broadcast over-the-air, which means that you can watch it with the help of a TV antenna. These devices are relatively cheap to purchase, and they enable people to watch dozens of local networks for free.

We just say that you should visit a site such as NoCable before committing to buying one of these antennas, so you can figure out whether or not CBS is even available in your area. Furthermore, you will also find out how far the other broadcast stations in your area are from your house, so you will know what range you need your device to cover for you to watch as many networks as possible. Make sure to also check the devices we listed above, in case any of them has the right features for your household.
