With the theatrical debut of Spider-Man: No Way Home just around the corner, now is the perfect time to look into when you can stream this new super hero movie on your preferred streaming service. While there isn’t a specific date yet, we’ll fill you in on everything you need to know about where and when you can stream Spider-Man: No Way Home in your area so that you don’t miss out on this exciting premiere!
Why it might be more difficult than you think
It’s been almost two months since Spider-Man: No Way Home hit theaters, and fans are still wondering when the movie will be available to stream. The answer is complicated. For one thing, Sony owns the rights to Spider-Man, so it’s up to them when and where the movie is released. And while some movies come to streaming services pretty quickly after they leave theaters, others take much longer. It all depends on the deals that studios make with streaming services. So, while we don’t know for sure when Spider-Man: No Way Home will be available to stream, we can make some educated guesses based on past releases.
Will it come to Netflix?
The release of Spider-Man: No Way Home is still shrouded in mystery, but that hasn’t stopped fans from wondering if and when the movie will come to their favorite streaming service. Netflix has been home to some of Marvel’s most popular movies, so it’s only natural that fans would hope that Spider-Man: No Way Home would find its way there too. Unfortunately, there’s no way to know for sure until the movie is actually released. Until then, we’ll just have to wait and see.

The situation for Spider-Man: No Way Home on other services is much more complicated. In terms of television, rights differ by region and network due to complex distribution agreements and licensing deals. Fans outside of North America should watch Netflix, Hulu or Amazon Prime Video in hopes that these networks pick up the series after its debut on Disney+. Depending on your location, you may also have access to FX Plus; FX Plus has recently become more widely available across Europe, Asia Pacific (including Australia) and Latin America with availability varying by region. We’ll keep an eye out for any announcements or leaks about networks or platforms planning to stream Spider-Man: No Way Home later down the line!
Does this mean Disney+ will be the place for all MCU content?
While it’s still unclear where exactly Spider-Man: No Way Home will end up streaming, it’s safe to say that the MCU is certainly headed in the direction of Disney+. With so much content already on the platform, and more being added every day, it’s likely that Disney+ will become the go-to spot for all things Marvel. So if you’re a fan of the MCU, be sure to keep an eye out for Spider-Man: No Way Home streaming on Disney+ in the near future.
Even though we know very little about what’s going to be featured on new Netflix rival Disney+, we can safely assume that Marvel properties are going to have a prominent place. It makes sense—Disney owns both Marvel Studios and Lucasfilm (which they purchased from George Lucas back in 2012), as well as ABC Studios and Star Wars Entertainment, which means they now have access to properties like Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Pirates of The Caribbean, Aladdin, Toy Story…the list goes on! If Spider-Man: No Way Home does make its way onto one of these platforms at some point then there’s no doubt we’ll see plenty more upcoming Marvel releases making their way there too.
So, where can I watch Spider-Man: No Way Home online or on TV?
Good news, Spidey fans! The movie will be available to stream on Amazon Prime Video, Google Play, iTunes, and more starting April 13. So, whether you’re looking to buy or rent the movie, you have plenty of options. And if you’re a Marvel Unlimited subscriber, you can watch it for free! Unfortunately, that’s not all – just like with the release of Avengers: Endgame, Iron Man 3, and Captain America: Civil War before it, you’ll need to sign up for an account with Disney+. That’s going to cost $6.99/month in order to get access – which is much cheaper than cable but still pretty pricey. It also includes some other movies that I’m sure many people won’t care about (like High School Musical), so there are other streaming services that are better choices if they fit your needs.
What other issues are related to Spider-Man not appearing on streaming sites right away?
One of the issues that are related to this is that people who want to see the movie might not have access to it. Another issue is that it could lead to piracy if people are unable to find a way to watch it legally. Additionally, it could hurt the box office performance of the movie if people wait to watch it on a streaming service instead of going out to see it in theaters. Finally, it could also set a precedent for other movies not to appear on streaming services until much later, which would be bad for both consumers and the industry as a whole. For now, there has been no official word from Sony or Marvel about when Spider-Man: No Way Home will come to streaming services. If you’re dying to know what happens with Peter Parker after Avengers: Endgame, it looks like you’ll just have to wait until Spider-Man 3 debuts in theaters next summer.
