Oppenheimer has won at the Golden Globes ahead of a likely strong showing at the Oscar nominations later this month.
If you still haven’t seen Christopher Nolan’s new movie yet, you can now catch up at home as it was finally released on digital in mid-November 2023 after it became the biggest biopic ever with more than $950 million worldwide.
Oppenheimer was released on the same day as Barbie in case you needed reminding, and if you want to recreate Barbenheimer at home, here’s how you can watch Barbie at home.
But let’s focus on Oppenheimer for now. Here’s how to watch Oppenheimer at home right now and when it might come to streaming platforms.
How to watch Oppenheimer right now
As mentioned above, Universal has finally released Oppenheimer on digital platforms, as well as on physical formats.
In the UK, you can rent Oppenheimer for £4.99 or buy a digital copy for £13.99 from Prime Video, iTunes, Microsoft Store and other digital platforms. If you prefer a physical copy, Oppenheimer is also available to buy on DVD, Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD right now.
In the US, you can rent Oppenheimer for $5.99 or buy a digital copy for $19.99 from Prime Video, iTunes and other digital platforms. It’s also available to buy on DVD, Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD formats.
In the UK, Oppenheimer received two exclusive 4K Steelbook releases from Amazon and HMV. They’re both out of stock at the time of writing, but stock does become available from time to time.
But if you don’t want to buy a copy of Oppenheimer, when can we expect it to stream and on which streaming service? Let’s speculate.
When will Oppenheimer be available to stream?
Oppenheimer will eventually stream on Universal’s service Peacock in the US, but this won’t be until after the digital release.
A release date for its streaming debut has yet to be confirmed. Typically, Universal releases in the US come to Peacock around a month after their digital release,
However, Oppenheimer wasn’t listed on Peacock’s January premiere list so barring a surprise release, you might have to wait until a little longer to see the movie on Peacock in the US.
Peacock in the UK is not the same, so don’t expect Oppenheimer to stream on Peacock in the UK.
Instead, it’ll likely arrive first on Sky Cinema and we already know it’ll be available to watch from April 12. There’s a chance it might be released somewhere else first, but Sky seems the likeliest first release.
