World Champion Magnus Carlsen VS challenger Ian Nepomniachtchi

How to watch live and who will win?

I will probably watch it using FIDE Youtube channel as main (but will also follow chess.com and chess24) and then hoping for some interesting stuff on Norways National TV NRK (wich I can se).

Does anyone know what the 'viewing options' are for the World Champs this week? I saw this link for Chess24's coverage but will it show live action of Carlsen & Nepo?  And where have Jan and Peter Svidler gone?  I am sure chess.com will have good coverage too but what is their plan? Sorry if I have missed other posts or news elsewhere on this subject.  I think during the last World Champs you could only watch the live action of the players by signing up/paying World Chess for their stream?

I would like to know if there is an official broadcast/coverage of the games (in English).

Yes

I think I've figured out it's at 1 pm eastern u.s. time.  I hope that's right because I don't want to miss the first move.

I think it's 7 am eastern standard time. 🤔
