Where to watch Depp v. Heard docuseries

In April 2022, formerly married actors Johnny Depp and Amber Heard went to trial over allegations of defamation in Fairfax County, Virginia. Depp was suing Heard for $50 million in damages, claiming her 2018 op-ed piece in The Washington Post where she spoke out against sexual abuse tanked his career even though she never mentioned Depp by name. Heard filed countersuit claims for $100 million.

For the next two months, the case transformed into a social media phenomenon as it became the first “Trial by TikTok.” In Depp v. Heard, director Emma Cooper explores the defamation case through the eyes of social media and how public opinion had a major role in shaping the world’s viewpoints of the two actors. View information on how to stream the three-part docuseries below.

Netflix recently removed its cheapest ad-free tier, meaning there are only three plans available for purchase. The ad-supported tier costs $7/month and includes all but a few movies and TV shows on the service. The two ad-free tiers are Standard at $15/month and Premium at $20/month. The biggest difference is the number of supported devices at once, with Standard offering two and Premium offering four.

Logo for NXT Vengeance Day 2024.

NXT kicks off its 2024 Premium Live Event schedule with the 2024 Vengeance Day. From 2001-2011, Vengeance was a WWE pay-per-view featuring the top wrestlers from Raw or SmackDown, depending on the year. The event experienced a hiatus for 10 years before its reincarnation as an NXT show in 2021. Vengeance Day 2024 is the fourth iteration of the NXT brand.

The main event will feature Ilja Dragunov defending his NXT Championship against Trick Williams. Expect "Whoop That Trick Chants" during this match, as fans have rallied behind Williams the last few months. Williams is even over with the WWE audience, as evidenced by the loud pop he received on the January 26 episode of SmackDown. Williams is in a unique situation as he attempts to pull a doubleheader at Vengeance Day. Earlier in the night, Williams will team with Carmelo Hayes to face Baron Corbin and Bron Breakker in the Men's Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic Finals.

For the second straight year, the NFL will present the Pro Bowl Games, a reimagined two-day event featuring the league's top players participating in multiple skills challenges.

In 2023, the NFL removed the tackle football game in favor of the Pro Bowl Games, which returns in 2024 from Orlando, Florida.

The first day of the competition – The Skills Showdown – aired on Thursday and featured precision passing and dodgeball. Sunday's Pro Bowl Games competition will feature a flag football competition with games of move the chains, gridiron gauntlet, and tug of war.
