For four nights in October CNN will present its live TV broadcast and offer unrestricted access to the network’s presidential debate programming through CNN.com and via CNN’s apps for iPhone and iPad. From 7 PM to midnight, October 3, 11, 16 and 22, anyone with an internet or mobile connection can view CNN TV's news, analysis and live coverage. In addition, viewers watching the debates on CNN.com can capture and share live TV video clips on the fly and share them within their social media circles using new "clip-and-share" editing features.
“Presidential debates shouldn’t be a passive activity for viewers. The issues and policy addressed on stage will impact every American - and the world,” said KC Estenson, SVP of CNN Digital. “Because of their global significance, CNN will offer the stream to all cnn.com users and provide everyone the opportunity to view, share and participate in the debates this fall.”

It’s a big week for CNNPolitics.com. Today marks the launch of the CNN Electoral Map, an online interactive where users can submit their best guesses for which presidential candidates will win each state. Users can compare their predictions to CNN’s political team, network contributors James Carville and Alex Castellanos and also the 2004 and 2008 state-by-state election results.
Then, on Tuesday, June 5, from noon to 12:30 p.m., CNN Digital is hosting its second CNN Election Roundtable, a live insider chat with Wolf Blitzer online at www.cnn.com/roundtable. Space is limited for questioners but viewers can watch a live stream of the Roundtable at www.cnn.com/live. The chat, which is powered by Cisco WebEx Technology, will be replayed later online at CNN.com and CNN Mobile.
