There is no shortage of livestreams Tuesday night allowing you to watch the State of the Union address online. The State of the Internet is strong, with no fewer than a dozen major news sites providing a State of the Union livestream at 9 p.m. ET Tuesday night. - Allvoices

This is the one year that watching an Internet stream may provide an advantage over the typical television broadcast of the State of the Union address. There are three -- count 'em! -- three Republican responses scheduled to be delivered after President Obama completes his address. Rep. Cathy McMorris Rogers (R-WA) is slated to deliver the official Republican response at 9:45 p.m. ET, followed by the Tea Party response from Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT), then followed by Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) delivering his own response to complete the marathon of political speeches.

Obama's speech will also be available on the ◼ White House official YouTube channel. The Republican response, by Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-Wash.), will be live streamed on the ◼ Speaker of the House channel.

The Tea Party's response, which will be delivered by Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah), will also be broadcast on YouTube, on the ◼ Tea Party Express channel. Not to be outdone, social media savvy — and potential 2016 Presidential hopeful — Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) will deliver a response on his ◼ personal channel.

The Republican Party will embed the official response by McMorris Rodgers on its ◼ State of the Union website. The site doesn't have the interactive features that the White House offers, but it does include an embedded, real-time Twitter stream.
