The Simpsons on Disney+

More staying in also means expanding the home-streaming universe, and those assorted services’ monthly or annual fees can add up quickly. Luckily, Disney+, the six-month-old streaming service that holds the show’s exclusive rights, offers a free trial. This promotional period allows potential subscribers to sign up and watch The Simpsons online for a week without having to part with a single dime — though even without leaving your couch once, that wouldn’t allow enough hours to binge all 661 episodes in its collection.

When the trial comes to an end, viewers can either continue their Disney+ subscription for $7 per month or hand over $70 for an annual membership at a discount of $14. There’s also the Disney+ Bundle, which also offers access to ESPN+ and Hulu for only $13 per month — $5 less than it would cost to subscribe to the trio individually. Considering episodes from season 31 won’t be available on Disney+ until next month at the soonest, but are available on Hulu right now, this seems like the best way to watch The Simpsons online.

Another alternative to watch The Simpsons online is through Amazon Prime Video, where the current season’s shows can be purchased. Past episodes are also available for rental and entire seasons for sale (prices ranges from $3 or $15-$40, respectively).

Both Disney+ and Amazon have chosen to exclude a season 3 episode involving Michael Jackson, which is apparently now regarded as too controversial. (Both company’s disregard of the show’s 4:3 aspect ratio that was used until midway through season 20 has also sparked some controversy). But, in any case, the rest of the show’s still-unfolding legacy is readily available, and for streamers seeking out their new fix, this is one that could keep them occupied — and smiling — for some weeks or months to come.

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.
