'Outcry' Streaming: How to watch Episode 1 of Greg Kelley Doc for Free

Showtime has a treat for those who feel they have watched every single streaming show over the last few months. The cable network is making the first episode of their documentary series Outcry available to stream for free to give viewers a change to sample the story of high school football player Greg Kelley, who was charged with sexually assaulting a child after an alleged incident in 2015

Episode 1 of Outcry is airing on Showtime on Sunday, July 5 at 10 p.m. ET. However, the episode will be available to watch for free on YouTube before then.

The episode will be streaming on Showtime's official YouTube channel on July 5 from 00:01 a.m. on Sunday morning. According to Deadline, the episode will also be streaming for free on "multiple television and streaming providers' devices, websites, applications and authenticated online services and their free On Demand channels." This is expected to include Hulu and Amazon Prime Video.

For viewers who find themselves gripped by the opening of Outcry, the remaining four episodes will air weekly on Showtime on Sundays. All five episodes will be made available for subscribers to watch from July 5 on the Showtime website and app as well as the Showtime Anytime app.

In the lead-up to Outcry Episode 1 being released, Showtime has released a trailer for the series, as well as a preview clip that presents the case for Kelley's guilt and his innocence.

The official synopsis for the series reads: "Greg Kelley had incredible momentum going into his senior year of high school in Leander, Texas, but that came to a sudden halt in the summer of 2013 when he was arrested and later convicted of super aggravated sexual assault of a four-year-old boy. After he was sentenced to 25 years in state prison without the possibility of parole, a groundswell of support emerged, calling into question the investigation, the prosecution's tactics and, ultimately, the validity of the conviction. Outcry captures a divided community over a seven-year journey, following the principal participants of the appeal process as they work in pursuit of justice."

Compiled over three years from over 180 hours of footage, Outcry features interviews with Kelley's family and Kelley himself, both in jail and after he was out on bond from August 2017. Speaking with Sports Illustrated, director Pat Kondelis said: "I was in shock multiple times over the revelations. I've never had less control over any story I've told before. This was us just sitting back, along for the ride."

In reviewing the series, The Hollywood Reporter said: "Showtime's new docuseries Outcry produces five hours of strange visceral responses, because it isn't particularly mysterious and it generates its empathy in a peculiar way. Still, it's provocative and infuriating — and if it feels somewhat padded, the duration is thematically justified."
