Thanksgiving Parade 2017 Live Stream: How To Watch Online


Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade has been a yearly tradition since 1924, excepting the years of World War II, and NBC has been broadcasting the event since 1948. As with a lot of traditional media, this event has entered the digital age, meaning you can watch the parade from your computer or phone with the magic of live-streams!

Normally, the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade airs on Thanksgiving Day, even if that seems too good to be true, at 9 AM eastern time. That said, you should make sure to account for time zones and adjust your live-streaming time accordingly. If you live in Colorado, for example, the parade will start for you at 7 AM.

Macy’s will host a live-stream on their own website. In the days leading up to the event, the website will allow you to go through a virtual replica of the city, complete with an interactive program that lets you see the line-ups from past years.

Many live-streams offered for the parade are going to cost you, according to Livewire. These could include Roku, Chromecast, Apple TV, Fire TV, DIRECTV NOW, Hulu, Sling TV, and PlayStation Vue.

That said, there are still various free options that will help people watch the parade online. Both Facebook and Twitter are expected to host various live-streams. YouTube Live is also expected to have a live-stream of the event this year, as they had made a deal with NBC in 2016 to air the parade. You can check in to their channel to see what the upcoming schedule will be like.
