At noon EST on Jan. 20, 2017, the second term of President Barack Obama officially ends, and the first term of President Donald Trump officially begins. A variety of news sites and cable networks will offer coverage of the inauguration, with streams available all over the Internet. But if you’re looking to watch the Fox News stream on the network’s Fox News Go platform, you’ll need a cable TV subscription. There’s one way to get around that: Watch the live coverage stream on Fox’s YouTube channel.

The run-up to the inauguration of Trump as the 45th President of the United States of America has certainly been a tumultuous one.
Controversy has flared up to follow the President-elect wherever he goes. His Cabinet appointments have been met with derision as they go through confirmation hearings before the Senate. He’s taken to Twitter to attack CNN and Buzzfeed, actress Meryl Streep, and even Indiana Union Boss Chuck Jones. And reports of Russian interference in the election, and possibly a connection with his campaign and transition team, have dogged him for months.
What’s more, numerous musical artists have reportedly turned down offers to play at the inauguration, including country singer Garth Brooks, tenor Andrea Bocelli, Broadway star Jennifer Holliday and British singer Rebecca Ferguson. Artists slated to perform at the event include country star Toby Keith, Mississippi rock band 3 Doors Down, and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.
At last count, 62 Democrat lawmakers were boycotting the inauguration in protest of Trump’s behavior. The exodus of Democrats was primarily triggered by remarks Trump leveled on Twitter at Civil Rights leader and Georgia Congressman John Lewis, after Lewis said on Meet the Press he would boycott the inauguration, and didn’t consider Trump to be a legitimate president.
With everything that’s happened since Trump was elected on Nov. 8, the inauguration is already a noteworthy one. It’s sure to become more so.
