You may already be familiar with the name Jerry Falwell Jr. because before he was the subject of a new film on Hulu, he was a well-known evangelical leader that got wrapped up in a salacious sex scandal. Whether you’ve heard of him or not, the Hulu documentary God Forbid: The Sex Scandal That Brought Down a Dynasty reveals a whole new side to the story.

How to watch God Forbid in the U.S.

God Forbid documents the story of a Miami pool boy who for years had had affair involving evangelical leader Jerry Falwell Jr. and his wife, Becki. It’s messy, complicated, and undeniably controversial.

If you are already a Hulu subscriber, just sign into your account and search for God Forbid to start watching when it premieres November 1. If you’re not yet a subscriber, you have a couple of choices. The first is that you can opt to sign up for the Disney Bundle, which gives you access to everything on Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+ for one monthly price of $13.99. If you’re looking up your streaming game, this is a pretty solid deal. There are countless hours of content for your viewing pleasure, and there’s definitely something for everyone.

On the other hand, if you are looking for a free way to check out God Forbid, you’re in luck. Right now, Hulu has a free 30-day trial for those who are not current subscribers. When you sign up, you’ll gain access to all of Hulu’s content for 30 days, and after that you’ll be charged $7.99 per month. If you aren’t ready to commit to a bundle, this is probably the better option for you.

How to watch God Forbid from abroad

If you’re located in the United States, you’re only one login away from watching God Forbid once you’ve signed up for the Disney Bundle or Hulu. If you’re traveling outside of the United States, you have one extra step to take: You’ll have to sign up for a VPN service. Streamers like Hulu only allow you to watch the content that’s available in the country you’re currently in. But with a VPN, Hulu will think you’re in the United States even when you’re in another country. Sign up with a provider like NordVPN so you can you watch all of your favorite content from anywhere.

How to watch Floyd Mayweather vs John Gotti III: Stream the exhibition match
Promotional poster showing Floyd Mayweather and John Gotti III.

It's an incredible week to watch boxing. We had Manuel Flores vs. Walter Santibanes on Thursday, the return of Adrien Broner on Friday, and three different events on Saturday. We get to cap off the weekend with a little dessert: The exhibition match between Floyd "Money" Mayweather (50-0, 27 KOs) and John Gotti III (2-0, 1 KO). Words fail for this event. Mayweather, the undefeated boxer and self-proclaimed "Best Ever," is going eight rounds with... the grandson of the gangster John Gotti? He's leaning into the association too, as the tagline for the event in "Last Names Matter" (Mayweather is a Jr. himself). John Gotti III is 2-0 in boxing and 5-1 in MMA. The names might be the most entertaining draw for this exhibition, but we'll admit we're hooked.

Floyd Mayweather vs John Gotti III starts at 9 p.m. ET on Sunday, June 11. It is an exclusive PPV on Zeus Network. Read on to find out how to watch it from anywhere in the world.

Jaime Munguia wants a belt. The undefeated Munguia (41-0, 33 KOs) is taking on Sergiy Derevyanchenko (14-4, 10 KOs) for the vacant WBC Silver super middleweight title this weekend, which he hopes will put him in line for some bigger title fights. Munguia has faced some backlash over his recent opponents' lack of pedigree. Derevyanchenko is a step in the right direction. He's a formal title challenger looking for his own belts. He's suffered four tough decision losses in his career, but they've been to tough opponents like Gennadiy "GGG" Golovkin and Jermall Charlo.
