The debate is due to start at 9pm EST, and run until 10:30pm EST. This means the event begins at 2am BST on Thursday October 8, and in Europe at 3am CEST.


The debate is taking place in Salt Lake City, in the Kingsbury Hall at the University of Utah.


The debate will be attended by both VP candidates, Mike Pence and Kamala Harris, and will be moderated by Susan Page of USA Today.

In the UK, the debates will be broadcast by BBC News Channel, CNN (Virgin Channel 607 / Sky Channel 878 or 506), and Bloomberg TV (Virgin Channel 609 / Sky Channel 502 / Freesat Channel 208).


Most of the major US networks will also be streaming the debate via their apps and online platforms. If you're in the UK, CNN is free to view without a log in from edition.cnn.com/specials/live-cnni-uk.
