Fox Business Network (FBN) will once again live stream its Republican presidential primary debates on Thursday, January 14th, for free without authentication. The live stream will be made available to all desktop and mobile devices by FOXBusiness.com.
Additionally, FBN will debut its new website on Tuesday, January 12th. The site will feature an “On Our Radar” column that consists of social media and videos, which will be utilized during Thursday evening’s debates.
FBN is also reprising its partnership with Facebook to provide live debate content on the network’s Facebook page, including behind the scenes footage and moderator interviews, conducted by Jo Ling Kent.
The network’s inaugural presidential debate, which took place on November 10, was the most watched live streaming primary event ever, peaking with more than 1.4 million concurrent streams, according to Akamai. In addition, FBN’s streaming performance bested NBC’s 2015 Super Bowl, which saw 1.3 million concurrent live streams, and CNN’s 921,000 concurrent streams for their September 16th GOP debate.
FBN’s first debate also set a new ratings record for the network, bringing in 13.5 million viewers.
