If you haven’t been living under a rock for the past month, you might’ve heard about or watched Netflix‘s super-hit Tiger King documentary. The eight episodes of this documentary were crazy, and as per the streaming service, it has been watched over 64 million times within the first four weeks of its release.

If you didn’t like documentaries before watching Tiger King, you might now believe that they can be as fun as movies. If you liked watching documentaries already, I don’t need to convince you. Here are some free-to-watch documentaries for you:

  • Netflix is offering some of its documentaries for free on its YouTube channel.
  • If you’re missing football action, you can watch the 2018 World Cup’s official documentary on FIFA’s YouTube channel. Plus, it’s also uploading classic World Cup matches every day. You’re in for a treat.
