US president Barack Obama’s final State of the Union address will be available to stream on Amazon Video, YouTube, and the White House’s own website.

The move comes in response to dwindling figures for the annual speech; while 52m people tuned in to Obama’s first address to Congress in 2009, figures for last year's speech slumped to 31.7m.

The White House’s chief digital officer Jason Goldman, a former exec at internet giants Twitter and Google, revealed the news last night. “Get cozy with your favourite internet-connected device,” he said.

President Obama will deliver his final State of the Union speech on Tuesday night.
