C-SPAN President, Rob Kennedy commented “C-SPAN is pleased to announce its partnership with Livestation to make the network’s telecasts available outside the United States. With so much interest in this year’s election, both in America and abroad, our partnership with Livestation allows the network to expand its mission of educating the public on the American political process. International viewers will now have the opportunity to watch the American democratic process unfold, uninterrupted and unfiltered, allowing viewers to form their own opinions on the issues being debated in the United States.”

Matteo Berlucchi, Livestation CEO said he was delighted to partner with C-SPAN, helping them deliver on their mission of giving public access to the US political process, “US citizens outside of the US can now access high quality C-SPAN programming via the Livestation player, additionally C-SPAN content now sits alongside other global perspectives, which will potentially attract new audiences while also driving traffic to their website.”

Berlucchi went on to say “I think with the US elections coming up, C-SPAN coverage is going to prove hugely popular with our audience, who we know like to have access to multiple global perspectives. We are looking forward to analysing the viewer statistics for the C-SPAN channel and helping them to understand their audience even better.”
