The sixth-highest earning film of all time, “Spider-Man: No Way Home,” was released in theatres in December of last year. But when will Peter Parker’s latest offering be available to stream? It’s not as simple as that, however.
Only a few details about No Way Home’s release date and platforms have been verified so far, such as “Apple TV,” “Amazon Prime,” “Google Play” and a few more lesser-known ones.
According to current agreements and industry trends, we’ve produced our own forecasts about whether the Phase 4 Marvel movie will be distributed on Netflix or Disney Plus in the future.
To begin, let’s review what we already understand. You may purchase a digital copy of No Way Home from “Prime Video,” “Apple TV (iTunes),” “Vudu,” “Google Play,” Microsoft, and YouTube for $19.99 / $14.99 in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia.
The DVD and Blu-ray releases of the film took place on April 4, April 12, and April 13 in the United Kingdom, the U.S., and Australia, respectively. On all of these dates, No Way Home was made available to rent rather than buy on the aforementioned platforms.
The future of “Spider-Man: No Way Home” on Disney Plus is still up in the air, but the odds aren’t good.
The feature-length Spider-Man properties that Sony now holds from Marvel mean that the studio is under no obligation to distribute the film on Disney’s platform, where the vast majority of earlier Marvel films are already available.
Since its release in December 2021, we’ve learned that No Way Home will be released by Starz (a division of Lionsgate) for approximately eighteen months. On the Starz app, you may see the film in the near future.
For those who already subscribe to “Prime Video,” Starz is also accessible as a paid add-on. When it premieres on Starz, No Way Home will most likely be accessible to stream on Amazon’s entertainment section.
We wouldn’t anticipate No Way Home to air on “Disney Plus” for at least another year because of Starz’s 18-month exclusivity pact, which expires in July 2023.
There are presently no plans for a “Disney Plus” release of “No Way Home,” but “Netflix,” which already distributes Spider-Man movies in the United Kingdom and other countries, will have the global rights to all Sony films at that time.
It is possible to see some of the web slinger’s films on Netflix in other countries at this moment. On Netflix, “Spider-Man: Far from Home” was formerly accessible, but it was taken down before the release of “No Way Home”.
Netflix and Disney Plus both now have access to Sony-produced Spider-Man films including “Spider-Man (2002)” and “Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017),” albeit not in the United States, as of June.
Netflix has the rights to Sony Pictures’ film schedule for the next five years, which means that No Way Home is unlikely to appear on Disney Plus anytime in the future.
This last wall-crawler installment is only available on Netflix if you already have a membership. That has yet to happen. It won’t be available in the US until next year at least.
