Ways to watch the State of the Union online

Tuesday, January 24, 2012 | 1:10 p.m. CST

The White House is encouraging viewers to interact online with Tuesday night's State of the Union speech. Here is a list of ways to watch online:

During the speech:

  • The official White House website will be hosting a standard broadcast and an enhanced broadcast. The enhanced broadcast is an online-only broadcast that will stream the speech as well as present the sources President Barack Obama mentions in his speech. The text of the speech will be posted on this site after Obama concludes.
  • YouTube will also host the enhanced version of the speech live.

  • The White House Blog has posted a list of online resources related to the speech. These include a behind-the-scenes video and photos.
  • PBS Newshour will host the speech and the GOP response on UStream. There will also be a panel following the speech hosted by Christina Bellantoni, Newshour's political editor.

After the speech:

  • Immediately following the speech, the White House will host a panel of advisers to answer questions submitted online. Twitter users can ask questions using the hashtag #WHChat and #SOTU.
  • On Jan. 30, Google+ and Youtube are teaming up to host a hangout with Obama. Questions can be submitted on the White House YouTube channel. The top-rated questions will be addressed in Monday night's web broadcast. The White House has produced a video to encourage people to participate in the discussion.
