Tonight, A&E will present a two-night biography special, Gotti: Godfather & Son. The event will air June 9 at 10pm ET/PT.
If you don’t have cable or can’t get to a TV, you can watch a live stream of A&E on your computer, phone or streaming device via one of the following cable-free, live-TV streaming services:
Philo TV: A&E is included in Philo’s main bundle, which is the cheapest among all streaming services if you plan on keeping it long-term. Not only that, but you can sign up for a free trial without having to enter any billing information. You’ll get two days for free right off the bat, then if you enter your billing information after that, you will get an additional five more days free. After signing up, you can watch the show live on your computer via the Philo website, or on your phone, tablet or streaming device via the Philo app.
Additionally, if you can’t watch live, Philo also allows you to DVR programs and watch them up to 30 days later. And even if you forget to DVR something, Philo also comes with a 72-hour rewind feature, which allows you to replay any show or event that has aired in the last 72 hours.
Hulu With Live TV: In addition to a Netflix-like on-demand streaming library, Hulu also offers a bundle of live TV channels, including A&E. You can sign up for “Hulu with Live TV” right here, and you can then watch the show live on your computer via the Hulu website, or on your phone, tablet or streaming device via the Hulu app.
If you can’t watch live, “Hulu with Live TV” also comes with both its extensive on-demand library (which has many shows available after they air) and 50 hours of Cloud DVR storage (with the ability to upgrade to “Enhanced Cloud DVR,” which gives you 200 hours of DVR space and the ability to fast forward through commercials).
FuboTV: A&E is included in the “Fubo Premier” bundle. You can sign up for a free 7-day trial right here, and you can then watch the show live on your computer via the FuboTV website, or on your phone, tablet or streaming device via the FuboTV app.
If you can’t watch live, FuboTV comes with 30 hours of Cloud DVR (with the ability to upgrade to 500 hours), as well as a “72-Hour Lookback” feature, which allows you to watch most events or shows up to three days after they air even if you forgot to record them.
Gotti: Godfather & Son will follow the story of two men– John Gotti Sr. and John Gotti Jr. — who were raised in the mob.
The event will feature the longest interview with John Gotti Jr., including never-before-seen footage of the last visit between John Gotti Sr. and his son at the US Medical Center for Federal Prisoners in Springfield. According to A&E TV, “It was during this meeting that John Gotti Jr., asked his father for his blessing to take the unprecedented steps of quitting what might have been one of the last of the major mafia dynasties.”
For those unfamiliar with his story, John Angelo Gotti is a former NYC mobster. From 1992 to 1999, he was the boss of the Gambino crime family. Nicknamed “Teflon Jr.”, Gotti was able to evade conviction and all four of his trials ended in mistrials.
Filmmaker Richard Stratton was the man who secured the rights to the film. Stratton, who also wrote the novel Smack Goddess, was a writer and consultant on HBO’s Oz. He is also the creator, writer, and executive producer of Showtime’s Street Time.
In total, the event will run four hours, and air on two nights. It will premiere on Saturday, June 9, at 10pm ET/PT and Sunday, June 10, at 9pm ET/PT on A&E.
