Today in DNC TV: Where to watch the Democratic National Convention on Thursday


2012 Democratic National Convention (Jonathan Newton - TWP)

Cable and broadcast networks start to wrap up convention coverage in Charlotte for the Democratic National Convention . Here’s a look at some of the highlights for Thursday — cable will be covering all day, the broadcast networks air live at 10 p.m., PBS begins coverage at 7 p.m., TV One kicks off at 8 p.m., and BET also has a special airing at 9:30 p.m.

President Obama will deliver his acceptance speech Thursday — from the Time Warner Cable Arena instead of Bank of America Stadium, due to weather — and Joe Biden is also scheduled to give an address.
