How to watch election results online

No cable? No problem.

Cord-cutters -- or people who don't even have a television -- can still watch the returns come in this election night, thanks to streaming coverage from a slew of news organizations. Here are some of the ways you can stay in the loop. 


YouTube is your one stop shop for election coverage. The video site will offer live streaming coverage beginning at 7 p.m. from several news channels: NBC News, PBS, MTV, Bloomberg, Telemundo and The Young Turks. The site will also stream a live event from YouTube Space NY, where Complex News will deliver live results. You can find YouTube's featured Election Day live streams here.


“Election Night in America” will be streamed live from 4 p.m. to 4 a.m. on and on the cable network’s mobile apps.


NBC will be live streaming on and on YouTube from 4 p.m. until 2 a.m. Coverage starts with MSNBC at 4 p.m., and at 6:30 p.m. the network will stream an election night edition of "Nightly News with Lester Holt" before going into network coverage. The coverage will also be available on mobile apps and via apps on devices like Roku, Amazon Fire and Apple TV.


Coverage on CBSN, the network’s streaming news channel, began at 6 a.m. Tuesday, and CBS will begin its network coverage at 7 p.m.


ABC News will start streaming online beginning at 7 p.m.
