Tonight’s Powerball is the second-largest jackpot in Powerball history, so you’ll want to watch the drawing live if you can. Get all the details you need on the Powerball time, what TV stations to watch, when the drawing will take place, and more. Please note that sometimes, TV channels that are supposed to show a live broadcast of the drawing decide not to broadcast it after all. If your channel did not broadcast the live drawing, you might want to keep a window open on your computer so you can watch the livestream.

We’re especially excited about tonight’s drawing because it’s one of the biggest jackpots yet. With a jackpot of at least $700 million, this is the largest we’ve had since the $1.4 billion jackpot last year.  Excited yet?

Here’s how to watch the drawing tonight.
