Where to watch The Banshees of Inisherin

Movies about Ireland tend to fall into two camps: feel-good fairy tales or hard-hitting realistic dramas. Yet for every Waking Ned Devine or In the Name of the Father, there comes along a movie that carries elements of both, making it somewhat unclassifiable, yet no less watchable. The Banshees of Inisherin is that kind of movie.

Starring Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson, The Banshees of Inisherin is one of the most acclaimed movies of 2022. With a number of Golden Globe awards under its belt (including Best Actor for Colin Farrell and Best Picture – Comedy or Musical), it’s sure to be a major contender at the forthcoming Oscar ceremony. And the praise is justified. It’s terrific, and is already on its way to homes nationwide. But where is it streaming?

If you’re not a current HBO Max subscriber, but you’re interested in watching The Banshees of Inisherin, there are a couple of different rates you can pay for access to the service. The cheapest rate includes ads, and starts at $10 a month, or $100 for a full year. If you want an ad-free experience, you can pay $15 a month or $150 for a full year.

This makes HBO Max one of the pricier streaming services out there, but it also gives you access to a pretty broad array of titles. including all of the HBO original programming that has ever been made. We’re talking such classic series as The Sopranos, Game of Thrones, Sex and the City, and The Wire, as well as current hits like The Staircase, Irma Vep, and House of the Dragon.

HBO Max also has many selections from the Warner Bros. library like The Batman and Don’t Worry Darling, plus anime classics from Studio Ghibli and Crunchyroll. In short, it’s a lot of great stuff.

Is it worth watching The Banshees of Inisherin?

A resounding yes. There’s a reason why The Banshees of Inisherin was named the best movie of 2022 by us. It’s a great story filled with stellar acting and subdued direction from director Martin McDonagh. He’s the mastermind behind Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri and In Bruges, the latter of which also starred Farrell and Gleeson, and he superbly interweaves personal, political, and spiritual conflicts while maintaining a dark sense of humor.

In addition to the outstanding Farrell and Gleeson, we’d be remiss to not highlight two of the best supporting performances of the year from Kerry Condon (as Farrell’s long-suffering sister) and Eternals actor Barry Keoghan as the town’s tragic idiot. Also, there’s a donkey named Jenny who steals the movie. What more can one ask for?

The Banshees of Inisherin currently has a score of 97% on the Tomatometer.

Where to watch all Doctor Who seasons right now

Doctor Who is one of the most prolific television franchises of all time, with its core series boasting nearly 900 episodes in total. There’s a tremendous archive of stories for fans to dig into, but outside of the UK, where they are consolidated on the BBC iPlayer, those stories are split across multiple streaming platforms. If you’re a completionist, watching everything may require some bouncing around, but we’ve done most of the homework for you.
Here’s how American viewers can explore the entire Whoniverse from their couch.

Most of classic Doctor Who is on Tubi
The majority of the original run of Doctor Who, which aired from 1963 to 1989 and featured the first seven incarnations of the beloved Time Lord, is available to stream for free outside of the UK on Tubi. Tubi began streaming classic Who in 2023 in commemoration of the show’s 60th birthday, offering episodes on-demand, as well as hosting a channel that streams the show 24 hours a day.
Tubi’s library even includes a number of animated episodes created by the BBC over the past few decades to replace chapters that have seen the original footage go missing. A sizable chunk of the 1960s run was lost shortly after broadcast due to BBC’s then-commonplace practice of erasing and reusing tapes of old programs that they imagined no one would miss. Some episodes are still missing, but thanks to decades of work by archivists, animators, and fans, nearly the entire missing portion of Patrick Troughton’s tenure as the Second Doctor can be seen once again, albeit in a different form than its producers had imagined.
However, there are some curious gaps in Tubi’s archive that can be filled on a different streaming service…

The trajectory of at least one franchise will change on Sunday at the 2024 NBA Draft Lottery. The lottery determines the first 14 picks in the 2024 NBA Draft. Last year, the San Antonio Spurs won the draft lottery and used the No. 1 pick on French phenom Victor Wembanyama. There are no generational players like Wembanyama in this year's draft. However, securing the No. 1 selection is still a priority for every team in the lottery.

The 14 teams that missed the 2024 NBA playoffs participate in the draft lottery. Each team is assigned oddsfor winning the No. 1 pick. The two teams with the best odds for the No. 1 pick are the Detroit Pistons (14%) and Washington Wizards (14%). The Charlotte Hornets (13.3%), Portland Trail Blazers (13.2%), and San Antonio Spurs (10.5%) round out the top five.
