How to watch Legion online: Stream the superhero drama for free

The psychedelic and superhero genres are not easily mixed. Or, at least, they’re not easily mixed and mixed well. In this way, FX’s trippy Marvel comics show Legion defies all expectations. Created by Noah Hawley — a showrunner whose previous credits include Fargo and Bones—the series stars Dan Stevens as David Haller/Legion. Haller is a “mutant” man who has been diagnosed with schizophrenia and is grappling with how to quell and control his power. The show is incredibly trippy and highly addictive, making it palatable to TV connoisseurs and comic book fans alike. Here’s how to watch Legion online.

Created By: Noah Hawley
Cast: Dan Stevens, Rachel Keller, Aubrey Plaza, Bill Irwin, Jeremie Harris
Number of Seasons: 3

Hulu’s streaming service offers the cheapest and most comprehensive way to binge Legion. Not only does it house all three seasons of the show, but it also gives you a one-month free trial with access to its entire streaming library when you sign up for the monthly subscription. You can easily cancel the subscription free of charge once the month comes to an end. However, if you choose to continue it, the fee is only $6 per month with ads and $12 per month without. Alternatively, once you’ve finished your Legion binge and are itching for a wide array of options, you could splurge for the Hulu + Live TV subscription, which gives you access to over 60 live and on-demand channels for just $55 per month. Whichever subscription plan you choose, you can rest assured that they’ll all include Legion‘s complete folio.

If you’re looking for a different comprehensive monthly subscription that offers shows like Legion as well as other live TV channels, YouTube TV may be your perfect match. With the service, you can stream and record live TV programs from over 70 channels for just $50 per month. Plus, they offer a free 7-day trial that can be easily canceled at the week’s end. So, with a total of 27 episodes that clock in at about an hour each, you could finish binging Legion within the trial period and get off payment-free.

Finally, if you’re just looking to watch Legion without all the bells and whistles of a larger streaming plan, its episodes and seasons are available for individual purchase on Amazon Prime Video service. Each episode costs $3 and each season costs $20. Although this isn’t the cheapest option, it’s a refreshing no-frills way to watch Legion without having to worry about a trial time limit or monthly fee.

Unfortunately, FX has confirmed that season 3 of Legion serves as its final installment. Although fans of the series are saddened by its end, now is the perfect time to catch up on — or perhaps rewatch — the acclaimed superhero show without having stress about how to access any future episodes.

How to watch the Sunny Edwards vs Andres Campos live stream
A promotional poster showing Sunny Edwards, Andres Campos, and the undercard fighters.

It's a fantastic week to watch boxing. There are half a dozen fights this worth watching this week, and we start Saturday off with a card packed full of title fights. Sunny Edwards (19-0, 4 KOs) will defend his IBF World Flyweight belt in a match against Andres Campos (15-0, 4 KOs). Both Edwards and Campos are undefeated going into this fight. As they say, the O must go. This is Edwards' fourth defense of the belt since he won it from Moruti Mthalane in December of 2023. Neither man is a knockout artist, so we'll likely see some technical boxing sent to the judge's scorecards.

This is a stacked card. Besides Edwards vs Campos, we get two title fights on the undercard: Cherneka Johnson vs Ellie Scotney, as Johnson defends her IBF women's super bantamweight title, and Nina Hughes vs Katie Healy, as Hughes defends her WBA women's bantamweight title. If that isn't enough, we get a British cruiserweight title eliminator bout between Cheavon Clarke and Davis Jamieson. See the full undercard below.

Watch Manuel Flores vs Walter Santibanes: How to live stream boxing
A promo poster showing Manuel "Gucci Manny" Flores.

The undefeated Manuel "Gucci Manny" Flores (15-0, 11 KOs) takes on Walter Santibanes (11-2, 2 KOs) in Indio California this week. Flores is a rising star in the super bantamweight division. He's been taking on opponents at a pace we only see in hungry prospects, with his last fight being a split decision win against Franklin Gonzalez in February.

Santibanes shouldn't prove too much of a challenge for Flores. He has only two knockouts in his career, while Flores has ended a majority of his bouts with stoppages. Santibanes' losses were early in his career though, and he's currently on a nine-win streak. This will be the first ten-round bout for both fighters.

Netflix free trial: Can you stream for free in 2023?

Netflix is the godfather of streaming. It basically started the entire movie streaming concept and reinvented it when it launched its first original program, House of Cards. The streaming market is a bit more crowded now, but Netflix still has some unbeatable programming. Netflix prices have risen over the last few years, and there are some hints that it might keep rising. If you're thinking about joining or rejoining the streaming giant, but aren't quite sure, you're probably looking for a free trial. We've collected all the information you need to know on how to save some money with a new Netflix account.
Is there a Netflix free trial?

Just as there's no Disney Plus free trial, you're out of luck if you're hoping to find a Netflix free trial on offer right now. There was a 30-day free trial in the past but Netflix scuttled it a couple of years ago, and we don't anticipate it coming back any time soon. Unlike some other streaming services (the excellent 30-day Hulu free trial comes to mind), Netflix doesn't appear to feel obliged to run free-trial offers. That's a tough break for the "try before you buy" crowd, but the sad truth is that, like Disney+, Netflix has a pretty captive audience and doesn't really need to do much to entice people to sign up. The good news is that Netflix has flexible plans, allowing you to upgrade, downgrade, or cancel your subscription at any time with no punitive fees. There are no contracts or commitments to worry about if you decide the service isn't for you, or just want to take a break for awhile.
