President Barack Obama will deliver his final State of the Union address Tuesday Jan. 12, 2016.
The President’s State of the Union address is becoming more accessible online.
Obama’s final State of the Union speech will now stream on Amazon Instant Video and it’ll be available on demand later this week.
The speech has been available on YouTube and the White House’s website for years now, but the Office of Digital Strategy is trying to increase its viewership by adding more broadcasting platforms.
Amazon will join the list of sites that live-stream the President’s State of the Union speech.
“We’ll be reaching people where they are-and making it possible for them to engage, respond, and share the President’s speech themselves in new and different ways,” Jason Goldman, White House chief digital officer, wrote in a medium post.
Here’s where, when and how to watch Obama’s final State of the Union address, which will take place at 9 p.m. ET on Tuesday Jan. 12:
The speech will be available live on Tuesday night, but Amazon will also make the speech available on demand across all devices with Amazon Instant video Wednesday through the end of the week.
To watch on Amazon you wont need an Amazon Prime account. You’ll just have to search for “President Obama’s 2016 State of the Union Address” and you’ll be able to watch once it begins. Amazon has also added previous speeches to its free catalog.
The White House’s YouTube channel will once again live-stream the entire speech tomorrow night. You can tune in a bit early as the cameras show who’s in the audience and how other congress men and women interact with each other.
If neither Amazon nor YouTube work for you, you can always tune in via the White House website, which will also have a live-stream available.
Other Social Media:
If you don’t have time to sit down and watch the whole thing, the White House digital staff will be posting video excerpts, GIFs and pull quotes in real time via Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Vine and Instagram.
