Less than two months after its theatrical release in the UK, Daniel Craig’s last James Bond film – No Time To Die, is now available for streaming in the UK.
The film, which was already available to stream at home in the US, is now available in the UK on Prime Video, Rakuten TV’s video-on-demand platform, as well as other digital VOD stores (see full details below).
No Time To Die, the 25th James Bond film, was directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga. It stars Daniel Craig (this is his 5th – and final – Bond film), along with Ralph Fiennes, Ana de Armas and Rami Malek.
The story starts with James Bond being out of active service, enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica, until an old CIA friend shows up and asks for help.
The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond on the trail of a mysterious villain who’s armed with dangerous new technology.
No Time To Die was released to cinemas in the UK on September 30, 2021 – more than a year after its original release date – due to numerous delays caused by the pandemic and worldwide lockdowns.
In the US, the film became available to stream digitally on November 9 – merely a month after its theatrical release date over there. In the UK, viewers had to wait longer – but not much longer.
How To Watch ‘No Time To Die’ Online In The UK
James Bond: No Time To Die is now available as a Premium VOD Rental in the UK, starting on November 19, on some of the leading UK streaming services (and it even managed to break some UK records).
Since it’s still a “Premium” rental, it costs £15.99. This is similar to the cost of other premium rentals from the past year, such as Wonder Woman 1984 and The Suicide Squad (but cheaper than premier rentals on Disney+, which usually cost £19.99).
As with all digital rentals, once you start playing the film, you will only have 48 hours to complete your watching.
Both VOD platforms are available on most streaming devices and Smart TVs sold in the UK.
The film will likely be added to additional digital platforms in the UK – such as Google Play Store and Apple’s iTunes.
While this digital release comes later than the film’s US digital release, it is still much earlier than films of the past, which used to take several months before they became available to watch at home.
The physical DVD and Blu-ray versions of No Time To Die will be released in the UK on December 20, and are already available for pre-order.
And as always, at some point, the film will also arrive to one of the major subscription-based streaming services in the UK at no extra cost – but that will not happen, most likely, before 2022.
