Watch The Young Pope Online: HBO’s Trending Show in 2017

It’s an HBO production. Jude Law stars in it. It’s as ridiculous as it sounds, but it knows it. And you can stream this ridiculous, entertaining mess of a show’s first episode free online. You don’t even need an HBO account to watch it. You have pretty much no excuse not to give it a try and watch The Young Pope online. At least the first episode.

The 10-part series premiered on HBO in January 2017, and the powerhouse network will air new episodes every Sunday and Monday. With the first episode airing on January 17, there’s low bar for committing to the show. Specially, since you can dip your toe in the papal waters and watch the first episode online for free without an HBO login. And if you like it, you won’t have to plow through hundreds and hundreds of episodes to get caught up.

Without giving it all away, the cigarette-smoking, Lenny Belardo (Jude Law) must win the political game of Vatican City after being chosen as the next Pope, Pius XIII. He shakes up the Vatican by moving to reject both the public eye and the liberal wold view of his predecessor. After you hit up the first show online for free, the second episode airs tonight. (HBO 8/7c)

Watch Super Bowl 2017 free online: Stream live without cable

The annual weekend where we all gather around the luscious array of snacks and beer with the most expensive commercials playing in the background. Oh yeah – and the game between the New England Patriots and Atlanta Falcons. Super Bowl LI (that’s 51 to the layperson) kicks off Sunday, February 5 at 6:30pm ET on FOX. And this year FOX has made it super easy to watch Super Bowl 2017 free online without cable.

Here’s how to watch Super Bowl 51 free.

FOX Sports Go App: The best way to watch Super Bowl 2017 free online

Hands down the easiest way to watch the game in your living room. Typically, you need cable login credentials to even look at the FOX Sports Go app, but FOX is removing authentication for the game. That’s right, you don’t need a cable login to watch the Super Bowl on the FOX Sports Go app. Available on most streaming devices (i.e. Roku, Chromecast, Apple TV, FireTV, Xbox), you only need to search for and download the app. Then you’re good to go.

You can also download the FOX Sports Go app on you laptop and phone, but you will need to be on your home wifi. If you are on cellular data, you will need to access the game directly from Verizon.

Sling TV

In select markets you can stream the game live from Houston with the Sling TV Blue package. There are a limited number of locations that the local FOX network is available. These are typically larger cities. If you’re in one of these locations, you’re in luck and can stream the game directly through your Sling TV subscription. No other downloads needed.

Digital Antenna

Depending on your proximity to your local FOX broadcast station, the digital antenna is a great option. With a $30 antenna, you can watch the Super Bowl (and a lot of other TV) on your local FOX station in HD for free.

If you’re relying on this option for the game but don’t have a digital antenna, definitely run to Best Buy or do a 2-hour Amazon order and experiment with it. For some people, digital antenna’s work great. For others, not so much.

Refugee Ban Executive Order – The Real Refugee Story – Frontline: Exodus

Exclusive, never-before-seen footage of refugees escaping the terror of the realities in their home countries. Much of PBS special, Frontline: Exodus”, is captured in first person by refugees as they flee for their lives. These are the stories of refugees, the same people impacted by the refugee ban executive order.

If your head wasn’t buried in the sand during the second weekend of Donald Trump as the President of the United States, you’re probably aware of the refugee ban executive order. The refugee ban executive order prohibits refugees from a select group of countries from entering the U.S. for the next four months. The PBS documentary special, “Frontline: Exodus”, tells the stories of refugees, the people impacted, like no other work out there.

Follow live updates of the refugee ban on CNN with Sling TV. No cable required.

Although the “Frontline: Exodus” focuses its attention on stories about refugees entering Europe, it still does a powerful job telling the stories of refugees, period. Wherever you fall on the political spectrum, it is important to go beyond the numbers, the protests, and the political charades to learn the stories about people.  The stories about people who have had their homes ripped away from them. People who have suffered persecution, faced war, and have brushed death. These are real stories. These are important stories.

The background on the refugee ban executive order and the global refugee crisis

Thousands of refugees and migrants fleeing war, persecution and hardship risk everything for a better life or to live at all. The refugees seek out safe harbor in European countries, the United States, and Canada every year. Only the blessed few actually escape their home countries. Those traveling to Europe take their lives in their hands as they hope and pray to safely cross the Mediterranean in anything but seaworthy, makeshift boats.

Over the last two years, more than 1.3 million people have arrived in Europe after crossing the Mediterranean. Nearly 9,000 have died or gone missing along the way.

“Frontline: Exodus” gives you never-before-seen access to the struggles of the refugee journey. Director James Bluemel combines his footage with video filmed by refugees and migrants themselves throughout the 2-hour special.

Frontline: Exodus aired for the first time last but is available today for streaming online. (PBS)

How to watch: you can watch right now online through the PBS website. Or your can stream it through the PBS app which is free.
