How to watch the Johnny Depp v Amber Heard trial outside the US

The actor’s testimony is now set to be cross-examined

As the Johnny Depp v Amber Heard trial marches on, it seems there’s no escape from it anywhere. The actor filed a lawsuit against his ex-wife in 2019, accusing her of defamation following a Washington Post article she wrote on abuse.

The end isn’t in sight either, as Depp’s lengthy testimony will next be cross-examined by Heard’s defence team, and we’ve still yet to hear from the actress herself. With two gruelling questioning sessions and several statements left to come, all the world can do is watch on in awe as it unfolds.

So, where can you actually watch the lawsuit live? From TikTok to Twitter and beyond, here’s a rundown on how to watch the Johnny Depp trial:


There are hundreds of videos available at your fingertips on TikTok, if you need to catch up first. Every significant statement from the first couple of days has been posted on there – some of which have millions of views.

American current affairs channel ABC News has also been livestreaming the testimonies as they happen. Johnny Depp’s latest statement (20th April) was broadcast live to people’s For You Pages.


Several news channels in the UK have been broadcasting the trial in its entirety. Typing “Johnny Depp live” into the search bar will help you to find over seven hours of footage.

For highlights, the Law & Crime Network YouTube channel has been uploading bitesize snippets from the testimonies.


I know what you’re thinking: How can I watch the full Johnny Depp trial on Twitter?

Twitter is alight with takes at the moment, but you can avoid all that by clicking straight on “videos” when you search for the trial.

The majority of videos are less than five minutes long – but given the length of the testimonies, that’s probably for the best.
