The first American conservative candidates debate, with Donald Trump, live on FOX News Channel on StarSat on Thursday from 23:00.

South African viewers will be able to watch the first and highly-anticipated debate of the conservative candidates of America's Republican party on the FOX News Channel (StarSat 261) live on StarSat early on Friday morning.

The debate which will take place on Thursday night in Cleveland, America will include mogul Donald Trump now leading in the polls as GOP candidate after dominating headlines and news coverage with his remarks about immigration and job creation. His often outrageous remarks the past few months have resonated with a large part of the United State's conservative voters.

It's the first of several conservative candidates' debates to be shown on the FOX News Channel and South African viewers will be able to watch it live early on Friday morning on On Digital Media (ODM) and StarTimes Media SA's StarSat.

Bret Baier, Megyn Kelly and Chris Wallace will be the moderators of the debate which will definitely make for entertaining viewing, as everyone is wondering not just what Donald Trump is going to say and who he is going to attack, but how the other candidates are going to react.

Coverage will kick off on the FOX News Channel at 23:00 on Thursday night (South African time) with a live Republican presidential debate forum discussion, followed at midnight by an hour long Special Report with Bret Baier, live from the Quicken Loans Arena.

It will be followed at 01:00 on Friday morning by On The Record with Greta van Susteren done from Washington D.C., and then The O'Reilly Factor at 02:00 with both shows devoted to pre-coverage of the debate.

The Republican Presidential Candidates Debate starts live from the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland at 02:50 on Friday morning, until 05:00.

After the debate The Kelly File at 05:00 will come live from the arena, followed by Hannity at 06:00 on Friday morning, also done live from the arena with both programmes doing a wrap-up and getting reaction from the debate.
