ABC has signed a deal with Facebook to livestream the upcoming presidential debates. According to the announcement, there will be a variety of events before and after the debates and the whole thing is going to be free of advertisements.

The network’s Facebook Live broadcasts will cover the three debates between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton and the VP face-off between Mike Pence and Tim Kaine. ABC News earlier this summer teamed with Facebook for live coverage of the 2016 Democratic and Republican conventions, which produced more than 28 million video views across ABC News’ main Facebook page and other accounts.
