Ustream wants U!

Posted on by

Ustream wants U.

There’s the Republican party, the Democratic party and the Ustream party. Join our party.

Ustream is hosting a presidential debate party tonight as only Ustream can.

We’ll bring you the first presidential debate of 2012 live from Denver with the help of our major media partners including CBS News, the Wall Street Journal and the PBS NewsHour. And yes, the PBS NewsHour hatcam is back.

But wait there’s more … much, much more.

You can also occupy the debate by following protesters and citizen reporters. You can debate the debate with watch parties big and small from around the country and even one live from Thailand. You can even play along with a live debate drinking game.

And because we’re Ustream, we will have the best animal cams, this time with a political theme, including the Cat-pital.

We have celebrity commentators and… wait for it… Hooter Girls.

Why? Because Ustream can. Because you should get a choice. Because you should get a vote on what you watch.

Barack, Rudy, and John: Election Season Heating Up at Ustream

Posted on by

As the presidential elections makes its steady march through the primaries, the viability of candidates take on a quantifiable momentum, producing breakthrough campaign activity both tragic and triumphant. Today, the Ustream community witnessed both extremes of the spectrum, live and in the moment.

Rudy Guiliani officially announced his withdrawal from the White House race, and thanks to our friends at Politico, we saw it all live from a front row seat at the press conference.

Giuliani coupled his exit announcement with an endorsement of fellow Ustreamer — and presidential candidate — John McCain.

On the democratic side of the campaign aisle, the Ustream community saw not one, but TWO speeches from Ustreamer – and presidential candidate — Barack Obama. Bouyed by his big win in South Carolina, Obama delivered a rousing speech to a massive rally in Denver, featuring Caroline Kennedy, before video-conferencing a talk with a Baptist organization. Barack’s team made sure to deliver both events live over Ustream.TV.

Political news junkies take note – when we say “LIVE” update we actually mean it. Here’s to the next President of the United States, whichever Ustreamer it turns out to be!
