About the Schedule

C-SPAN is committed to LIVE gavel-to-gavel coverage of the House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate on C-SPAN2 when they are in session. Due to this live coverage, we are only able to schedule events more than a few hours in advance. C-SPAN3 offers special programming focusing on American History from past and present. In addition, C-SPAN3 carries live events when the House and Senate are in session.

Each day we decide in the late afternoon what events we will cover the following day. Until the events are complete, we do not know how long they are and how they will air in our schedule. Throughout the day, events are posted as we know them, but this is often just shortly before they air. View our TV schedule (Printable Version) for up-to-date programming and re-air information. In addition, on-air programming updates will appear at the bottom of the TV screen every 15 minutes.
