On Tuesday, January 20th, 2009, Barack Obama will be sworn in as the 44th President of the United States. The formal program begins at 11:30 AM EST and will be shown live around the world.

Americans abroad: Will you be watching the festivities? Whether you live abroad or will simply be traveling, we’d like to know whether or not you’ll tune in on Tuesday to the historic event happening in Washington.

If yes, please tell us where you plan to watch the ceremony. Which city? In a bar, community center, church, or other location?  Will you get there early? At home alone? In your hotel room?

If no, please tell us why not. Not interested? You can see highlights on YouTube? The line will be finally be short at the Eiffel Tower?

Tomorrow we’ll be posting a list of spots where you can watch the inauguration in Europe’s major cities. So please, leave your comments below! Thanks!

  1. Does anyone know what channels it will be on? I’m assuming CNN but what is all this business with HBO having broadcast rights? I’m in Vietnam, so it’s going to be on at midnight.

  3. I am studying in Milan and I just got here and don’t know where to watch the inauguration. I worked on the campaign for over a year and I don’t have a TV. I will be heartbroken if I don’t get to see Barack Obama sworn in!
