Over-the-Top (OTT) Clinton vs. Trump Debate Programming

I am cord-cutter and a Presidential Debate Fan. While there are many free ways watch Presidential Debate online, I cannot live without a good HD experience. This year though, I subscribed to PlayStation Vue and now I left wondering how I lived without it all these years. I compared PlayStation Vue vs Sling TV, and I thought PS Vue apps and interface were better. In addition, PS Vue carried more channels from the list above for just a few bucks more.
