State of the Union address time: Where to watch online

The State of the Union speech will be delivered by President Obama before a joint session of Congress and is scheduled to begin at 9 p.m. Eastern Time and 6 p.m. Pacific Time on Wednesday, Jan. 27, 2010.

At 4:30 p.m., a handful of lawmakers had already arrived. Advance excerpts show that Obama plans to say that he will "not walk away from" health care reform. He will also reach out to Republicans, asking lawmakers of both parties to "overcome the numbing weight of our politics."

The State of the Union address can also be viewed on cable and network television stations, as well as online at WhiteHouse.gov and The Washington Post. If you're not too blurry-eyed from your State of the Union drinking game, the Post will also be factchecking the speech in a liveblog and collecting the best congressional reaction on Twitter. This morning, Michael D. Shear talked to readers about what to expect.

The Fix has assembled a State of the Union viewers' guide. In the speech, Obama will call for a bipartisan budget task force in a speech framed around economic policy.
