In other words: It’s a must-see superhero movie, so here’s how to watch Aquaman online.

Hulu offers the cheapest and easiest platform to stream Aquaman online. And did I mention there’s a free trial? When you sign up for the monthly subscription plan, the streaming service immediately gives you a one-month free trial to test out the platform and watch titles like Aquaman in its extensive content library. At the trial’s conclusion, cancellation of the plan is quick, easy, and cost-free. However, if you want to continue reaping the benefits of the service’s library, the monthly subscription plan costs $6 with ads and $12 without. Whether you opt for ads or not, Aquaman will be available to stream on both plans at your full disposal.

HBO also offers streaming access to Aquaman in its content library. With a subscription to HBO Max or HBO Now, you can watch the full superhero movie from the the comfort of your home. Both subscription options allow a seven-day free trial before you officially sign on for the monthly payments of $15. So, if you’re only looking to watch Aquaman a few times, you could easily sign up for the free trial and then cancel at the week’s end. However, if you want unfettered access to the movie — as well as the many other popular titles that HBO offers — you may want to consider a long-term investment in one of the subscription plans.

Finally, Aquaman is available for purchase on Amazon Prime Video. Pay $4 to rent the movie or $10 to add permanently to your streaming library. This is arguably much simpler than either subscription plan, although it’s much less bang for your buck if you want access to a wide array of content.

No matter which streaming avenue you choose, Aquaman will prove well worth your time. Plus, DC has already promised a sequel. It’s set to release in 2022, so don’t forget to catch up on the original while you still can.

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.
