Watching Donald Trump, Ben Carson, Jeb Bush and the rest of the Republican presidential hopefuls duke it out Wednesday will be difficult without a cable subscription, as there won’t be a free online stream of Wednesday’s GOP debate.
CNBC, host of the third Republican debate, will make a stream available on CNBC.com and on the network’s mobile apps — but a cable login will be required to tune in.
The network’s coverage begins at 5 p.m. ET. The undercard debate is up first, featuring the lowest-polling candidates. It kicks off at 6 p.m. ET with candidates Rick Santorum, Bobby Jindal, George Pataki and Lindsey Graham. At 8 p.m. ET, ten candidates will take the stage in Colorado for the main debate: Trump, Carson, Bush, Carly Fiorina, Marco Rubio, John Kasich, Chris Christie, Mike Huckabee, Ted Cruz and Rand Paul.
The debate is moderated by CNBC’s Carl Quintanilla, Beck Quick and John Harwood. The Republican National Convention-sanctioned debate will be held at the Coors Events Center at the University of Colorado Boulder.
For those without access to cable TV, there’s always social media, where you can follow reporters and political sites for the latest. Live blogs will also help with following along in real-time. On Twitter, check out the hashtag #CNBCGOPDebate to stay updated on what’s happening.
