Where to watch the impeachment trial live


The Senate impeachment trial will be aired on most major TV news networks starting at 1PM EST 2/9/21. If you don't have cable, here's where you can view the trial for free.
* C-Span (website)
* YouTube
* CNN
* PBS News Hour

How long will the trial last?
There's no set time for an impeachment trial. Trump's first impeachment, in 2019, lasted three weeks. This one is expected to go faster and rely largely on evidence gathered from news video, social media posts and live video from people on the scene.

Current schedule of Trump's impeachment trial
This is how the trial will unfold:
* Feb. 9: four hours of debate equally divided between prosecutors and defense on whether the trial is constitutional, followed by a vote needing a simply majority to proceed
* Feb. 10, 12:00 p.m. ET: House of Representatives will begin arguing its case; prosecutors and defense will have up to 16 hours each to present their arguments, with neither side permitted to present for more than eight hours per day
* Feb. 12, 5:00 p.m. ET: The trial will break through Saturday
* Feb. 14, 2:00 p.m. ET: The trial will reconvene Sunday
* Arguments will be followed by four hours for senators' questions
* If the House impeachment managers want to call witnesses or subpoena documents, there will be two hours of debate by each side followed by a Senate vote on whether to allow this
* If witnesses are called, there will be enough time given to depose them, and for each party to complete discovery before testimony is given
* Once witnesses and evidence is dealt with, there will be four hours of closing arguments divided evenly between the prosecutors and defense
* Lastly will come the vote on conviction or acquittal, for which a two-thirds majority is required

6. Thank you. Important information.

I have cable, but I think it's important TV.

The first impeachment hearings were far more compelling than I expected.
