During tonight’s Commander-in-Chief Forum, both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump will go back-to-back to take questions on national security and military affairs from NBC News as well as from the audience which will be comprised of military veterans, as well as those still active in service.

The one-hour forum is sponsored by the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America and will be moderated by NBC journalist, Matt Lauer. It will air live on MSNBC at 8 p.m. ET and will be simulcast live on NBC in most markets. Check local listings if you live in the Mountain and Pacific time zones. The event will also air on NBC in its entirety at 8 p.m. PT and 9 p.m. MT.

Read on below for all the details.


Watch the Forum Via Live Stream Online

If You Don’t Have a Cable Subscription That Includes MSNBC

If you’re in the United States and don’t have access to a cable or satellite log-in, you can watch the forum through Sling TV, an online streaming service that provides access to select channels for a monthly fee, but includes a free seven-day trial.

NBC is available in select TV markets via Sling’s Blue package, which costs $25 per month. The markets in which it’s available are Chicago, Dallas, Hartford, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco and Washington D.C. When watching NBC through Sling, you’ll see the live feed from the NBC affiliate in your area, so if you’re in an area where the forum is not airing live and you’re looking for a live feed, your best bet is to watch it on MSNBC.

MSNBC is available in all markets through Sling’s World News Extra package, which costs an additional $5 per month, but is also included in the free seven-day trial.

To sign up for Sling, follow these steps:

1. Click here to sign up for Sling TV. You’ll need to enter your credit card information when signing up, but if you cancel your subscription before the trial period ends, you will not be charged.

2. If you’re in the Chicago, Dallas, Hartford, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco or Washington, D.C. market and want to watch the forum on NBC, select the Blue package, which costs $25 per month. You can also select the Orange package, Sling’s other basic package, for an additional $15. But NBC is only included in the Blue package. If you’re not in one of those TV markets and/or you’re looking to watch the forum on MSNBC, you can select one or both of the Orange and Blue packages.

3. During the signup process, you’ll be given an option to select add-on packages. Each package comes with an additional monthly fee, but each is included in the free trial. When you’re selecting add-ons, select the World News extra package, which includes MSNBC.

4. Download the Sling desktop app, and navigate over to MSNBC or, if applicable, NBC, to watch the forum.
