This Thursday, June 2 to Sunday, June 5, the United Kingdom will have its Platinum Jubilee marking the 70th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II’s reign. ABC has exclusive coverage of the event in the US, so “Good Morning America,” “World News Tonight With David Muir” and “Nightline” will all have coverage focused on the Platinum Jubilee. Hulu will have next-day on-demand coverage of events like the Buckingham Palace concert. Considering Hulu Live TV includes ABC, ABC News, and Hulu on-demand, it’s likely your best option to watch all the US coverage of the Platinum Jubilee. You can also watch the UK’s Sky News YouTube Channel as it’s accessible in the United States and is running continuous coverage (plus the British accents really set the mood.)
ABC News Live is available for free through the ABC News Live app on Roku, iOS, Android, Apple TV, Fire TV, and more. ABC News Live is also in the Channel Lineup of Hulu Live TV, YouTube TV, FuboTV, and Vidgo. Read on for a schedule and description of the Platinum Jubilee.
