Now, there are a number of knockoff mirror sites out there, like Hulkusc that will mirror live broadcasts. But, as with any illegal redirect or mirror, you're likely to encounter a boatload of pop-up ads and dialog boxes that will annoy the living hell out of you, and potentially harm your computer.
So, if you lack the necessary subscription, but don't want to experience debate FOMO, well, you should figure out who among your friends and family have cable and go from there. CNBC will also have a live blog on its website throughout the night, and of course, you can always follow the seemingly endless stream of tweets from political journalists on Twitter. Either way, there will be plenty more debates to watch before the 2016 elections. Probably too many.
