Where You Can Watch Leo DiCaprio’s New Climate Change Documentary 'Before the Flood'
That’s how important this film is.
**Nov. 11, 2016 Update: "Before the Flood" is no longer available on YouTube for free, but you can see it on the following streaming platforms: Amazon Video, Vudu, YouTube ($2.99), Google Play ($2.99), and Hulu.
Leo Dicaprio continues to use his popularity to shed light on climate change, and now media platforms are backing him in a very exciting way. National Geographic will air DiCaprio’s “Before the Flood” commercial-free, and five major live-streaming channels will air the doc free-of-charge.
You’ve likely already heard about the documentary, “Before the Flood,” that Dicaprio has been working on for the past three years about climate change, but if you haven’t, here’s what you should know:
The documentary includes interviews with tons of influential leaders like President Barack Obama, former President Bill Clinton, Secretary of State John Kerry, U.N. Secretary-General Ki-Moon and Pope Francis, who all believe in the importance of educating people about climate change.
National Geographic believes so wholeheartedly in the project and its message that the network has agreed to air the film without any advertisements on its network on Sunday, October 30 at 9 p.m. ET.
The film will also be available, again without commercials, in over 170 countries and 45 languages. It will play entirely free from Oct. 30 until Nov. 6 on Youtube, Facebook, Twitter, Amazon, iTunes and Google Play.
This viewing opportunity marks the first time the National Geographic channel has made one of its productions entirely available for free.
This is HUGE!
Non-restricted, free streaming sends an important message to viewers about the urgency to educate the world about climate change.
Dicaprio, who directed and produced the film with Fisher Stevens, expressed his enthusiasm regarding the network's decision in a statement.
“Fisher and I set out to make a film to educate people around the planet on the urgent issues of climate change and to inspire them to be part of the solution. I applaud National Geographic for their commitment to bringing this film to as many people as possible at such a critical time,” said DiCaprio.
We know Leo will continue to make us proud, and raise awareness to combat climate change. In the meantime, we’re thrilled everyone has the opportunity to tune in and watch his latest project.
