How to Watch Biden’s Speech

President Biden will deliver his first prime-time presidential address at 8 p.m. Eastern on Thursday.

Speaking from the East Room of the White House, he is expected to focus on the coronavirus pandemic as the nation reaches an inflection point: the first anniversary of the official pandemic declaration, and the same day he signed into law a $1.9 trillion relief package. One year into the pandemic, the United States has recorded by far the world’s largest outbreak, with about 530,000 deaths and more than 29 million infections.

The speech is anticipated to be about 20 minutes long.

A livestream of the full speech will be available on The Times’s home page, and Times reporters will be covering it in our Washington live briefing throughout the evening.
