How to watch Framing Britney Spears for free in the US

A controversial documentary on the troubled superstar is available to watch for free in the United States. This is how.

Most of pop superstar Britney Spears’ life has played out directly in the public eye. From The Mickey Mouse Club to megastardom courtesy of her debut single “Baby one more time” and some much publicised personal issues, it has been a glaring spotlight for the now 39-year-old.

While Spears has largely been laying low since she canceled a planned Las Vegas residency in early 2019, a new documentary has elevated her back into the international consciousness.

Launched on February 5 and produced by The New York Times, Framing Britney Spears is similar to HBO’s recent Tiger Woods documentary, Tiger, in that the protagonist is not directly involved in the project. But also similar to Tiger, it combines enough historical footage and current interviews and statements to make it more than intriguing.

As well as Spears’ extraordinary career, the doco also focuses on the management of her personal affairs by her father Jamie, which is a legal agreement known as conservatorship. It also highlights the #FreeBritney movement driven by her fans that aims to free her from that contract.
