Watch the trial on the Court TV app and site

The main source of live coverage for the Johnny Depp vs. Amber Heard trial is Court TV. You can watch the trial live free at or via the Court TV app for Apple TV 4K, Fire TV, or Roku.

You can also watch Court TV live if you already have a cable or satellite TV provider, live TV streaming service subscription, or over-the-air (OTA) TV antenna.

Watch the trial on social media

Okay, social media is a sketchy place to get your news—make sure you’re choosing a reputable news source instead of Stinky Joe’s McNews Opinions.


There is no shortage of trial coverage on YouTube. Use these direct links to live coverage so you won’t have to sort through the zillions of short clips and commentary videos. Not that commentary channels are a bad way to watch the trial . . .

Embrace the digital circus

If you don’t have time to watch the full live coverage of the Johnny Depp vs. Amber Heard trial, YouTube commentary channels can be a fun and informative way to catch up. We recommend checking out Natalie Lawyer Chick for legal analysis and Observe for body language analysis.


These aren’t the only official live news streams on Facebook. If you don’t see a preferred news source below, try searching for it because it might be there.


TikTok has official live streams from some news sources.

Watch the trial on news sites

Obviously, news organizations stream live coverage of the Johnny Depp–Amber Heard trial on their own websites. Here are some of the top sources.

Use free trials of live TV streaming services

Although many live TV streaming services no longer offer free trials, these ones still do. But of course, these only work for 5–7 days unless you <cough> figure out a way to exploit the free trials. Or stick with Sling Free, which is basically an ad-supported free trial for Sling TV (with limited content).
