You can fire up the NBC News app on your Android phone or tablet, iPhone or iPad, Fire TV or Roku, or You could simply visit Or you could visit and watch a livestream there. So many options!

Tonight is the last Democratic debate before primary voting kicks off in Iowa on February 1st. With Bernie Sanders continuing to chip away at Hillary's lead this is bound to be pivotal moment in the race. Either Clinton will solidify her seeming lock on the nomination, or Sanders will make things really interesting. Most of the attention will be paid to the two frontrunners, but don't forget that Martin O'Malley will also be on the stage.

Since the event is run in coordination with YouTube expect a healthy amount of talk about policy impacting the internet and businesses built around it. But there will also be more superficial ties to the web, like questions submitted via YouTube videos, I'm sure.
