Here's how to watch The Inventor, the jaw-dropping Elizabeth Holmes doc everyone's talking about
The Inventor—the documentary about Elizabeth Holmes and her giant Silicon Valley scam—only dropped last night, March 18th, and it’s already generating major buzz. In case you don’t know, Holmes was the (alleged) visionary who dropped out of Stanford to found a startup that promised to revolutionize healthcare and diagnostics in the United States—and potentially the world.
Holmes was featured in cover stories, write-ups, and “most impressive people” lists, and her company was eventually valued at 9 billion dollars. Until it was discovered that the entire thing was founded on bogus science…and Holmes knew it the whole time. A 22-year-old had tricked the entire world—and even many within the medical science community.
If you’re now desperate to watch the documentary for yourself, worry not: We’ve rounded up all the ways you can watch The Inventor: Out for Blood in Silicon Valley by Oscar-winning filmmaker Alex Gibney.
1 Sign in with Pay-TV login
For those lucky enough to have Pay-TV credentials, watching the documentary is super easy. All you have to do is sign onto the HBO Go website or one of its mobile apps, and you’ll be watching in no time.
2Watch it again on HBO
If you have cable, don’t sweat it! The documentary will air again on Wednesday, March 20th at 11:35 p.m. ET, Friday, March 22nd at 5:30 p.m. ET, and Saturday, March 23rd at 2:30 p.m. ET.
3 Get an HBO subscription
For those who don’t have a Pay-TV login or cable, the easiest way to watch the documentary is to get an HBO subscription. Don’t worry: HBO often has deals for free weeks and trials, so you won’t have to commit a year of your savings to catching up on the drama.
4Watch on Amazon Prime
You can add HBO to your Amazon Prime account and (you guessed it) they have a free trial before you commit to anything.
Or, if you’re patient, you can wait for the movie about Holmes’ story starring Jennifer Lawrence. Unfortunately, it might be a while (it doesn’t yet have a production or release date on IMDB).
