How to Watch Tonight’s DNC: Time, Streaming, Speakers and Schedule

Night 3 of the Democratic National Convention is upon us, and for the first time this week, viewers will hear from Senator Kamala Harris, the presumptive vice-presidential nominee.

Other big names speaking Wednesday evening include former President Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and Senator Elizabeth Warren. Scroll down for a full list of speakers.

The convention will air from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. Eastern time on Wednesday. Kerry Washington is the M.C. There are several ways to watch:

  • The Times will stream the full convention every day, accompanied by chat-based live analysis from our reporters and real-time highlights from the speeches. You can download our iOS or Android app and turn on notifications to be alerted when our live analysis starts.

  • The official livestream will be here. It will also be available on YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and Twitch.

  • ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox News will air the convention from 10 p.m. to 11 p.m. each night. C-SPAN, CNN, MSNBC and PBS will cover the full two hours each night.

  • Streams will be available on Apple TV, Roku and Amazon Fire TV by searching “Democratic National Convention” or “2020 DNC,” and on Amazon Prime Video by searching “DNC.”

  • The convention will air on AT&T U-verse (channels 212 and 1212) and AT&T DirectTV (channel 201). It will also air on Comcast Xfinity Flex and Comcast X1 (say “DNC” into your voice remote).

  • You can watch on a PlayStation 4 or PSVR through the Littlstar app.

  • If you have an Alexa device, you can say “Alexa, play the Democratic National Convention.”

  • Hillary Clinton, the 2016 Democratic nominee and former secretary of state. Four years ago, she appeared onscreen to the sound of breaking glass before being nominated herself. This time, she will be speaking on behalf of the man she hopes can beat Mr. Trump where she could not.

  • Gov. Tony Evers of Wisconsin, the nominal home of the convention. He narrowly defeated Scott Walker, the Republican incumbent, for the governorship in 2018, two years after Mr. Trump won the state.

  • Former Representative Gabrielle Giffords of Arizona. Almost killed in a mass shooting in 2011, she has since become one of the United States’ most vocal advocates for stricter gun laws, and her husband, Mark Kelly, is the Democratic candidate for Senate in Arizona.

  • Senator Kamala Harris of California, Mr. Biden’s running mate. She is the first woman of color on a major party’s presidential ticket and will be looking to energize Black voters, the Democratic Party’s most loyal constituency.

  • Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham of New Mexico. She is the first Latina Democrat to lead any state and was a vice-presidential contender, and like several other governors, she received some national attention for her response to the coronavirus pandemic.

  • Former President Barack Obama. More than anyone else in the Democratic Party, he is seen as a potential uniter of the party’s moderate and progressive factions. He did not weigh in publicly while the primary was competitive, but he has become more active on the campaign trail (or what remains of it) since endorsing Mr. Biden in April.

  • Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the House Democratic leader. She has been on the front lines of the ongoing legislative fights with the Trump administration over coronavirus relief and funding for the United States Postal Service.

  • Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts. She and Senator Bernie Sanders, who spoke on Monday, were the two most prominent progressive candidates in the Democratic primary, and she was on Mr. Biden’s vice-presidential shortlist.
