Hulu Streaming The Presidential Debate Live

It’s official. We’re one step closer to a point where you can throw out your cable box. Not only can you find virtually any TV program you’d ever want to see online thanks to BitTorrent, but legit websites like Hulu and TheWB.com, and Fancast are making huge libraries of legal, full-length streaming TV episodes available. And now Hulu is prepared to take the next step by streaming tonight’s presidential debate (and the October 15th debate) live.

Granted, a live stream of the presidential debate isn’t quite as exciting as real-time streaming of popular, network-owned programs like Heroes or 24. But if enough people tune in to watch the debate on Hulu tonight, it could be a powerful demonstration that there’s a group of people who want to watch live TV online, not just video-on-demand a day or two after a TV program has already aired on television.
