The much-anticipated movie The Gabby Petito Story will be shown for the first time on Lifetime on Oct. 1 at 8 p.m. and 7 p.m. Those who have already cut the cord but still want to watch the premiere live can do so with DirecTV Stream or Philo.
Philo is one of the cheaper live streaming services. It costs $25 a month and has more than 60 live and on-demand channels to choose from. Fans of Lifetime or Hallmark can also use Philo to watch most of the movies on those networks.
Aside from Lifetime, the streaming service has many other popular channels, such as the Hallmark Channel, AMC, HGTV, the History Channel, the Discovery Channel, CMT, and more. On the other hand, DirecTV Stream is one of the best alternatives to regular cable and has a lot of channel choices.
For $64.99 a month, subscribers can stream and watch live channels whenever they want. But there are other packages with more channels and a higher price that cost more. Lifetime, BET, Fox, CBS, Showtime, NBC, ESPN, ABC, A&E, TLC, Food Network, and many more popular channels can be found on DirecTV Stream.
Philo and DirecTV Stream both have free trials for first-time users, so you can watch The Gabby Petito Story for free before committing to anything.
What happens in The Gabby Petito Story?
The Gabby Petito Story looks at the complicated relationship between Gabby and her fiance Brian Laundrie, as well as what might have gone wrong on their cross-country trip that led to Gabby’s tragic death.
Gabby Petito, a 22-year-old travel blogger, went missing in September 2021. Her parents reported missing after she did not come home from a cross-country “van-life” trip with her fiance, Brian Laundrie. This sparked a nationwide search for Gabby.
Gabby’s body was found in Wyoming after amateur detectives looked through her social media posts for clues about what happened to her on her trip. This was made possible by the constant coverage of the story in the news.
As the first anniversary of her tragic death approaches, the movie will tell the sad love story of Gabby and Brian, including the signs that Gabby’s life was danger, the search for her, the discovery of her murder, and Brian’s suicide.
