Is Barbie streaming? Whether you’ve been on board with the iconic doll from day one and have seen every single animated movie, or you just got on board for the Barbenheimer Day fun, here we go over where you can catch the adventure movie.

Barbie was one of the most exciting new movies of 2023, and you probably know by now the Barbie release date and Oppenheimer release date were one and the same. You also probably know that Barbie smashed the box-office. But if you also want to know if it’s on any of the best streaming services after its extremely successful run in cinemas, we explore the most popular digital platforms and their chances of hosting this pool party.

This is how to watch Barbie, including any information about its digital release date and physical media.

Where can I watch Barbie?

From September 12, 2023, you can now own or rent Barbie on digital or VOD.

Initially, there was no day-and-date release here. For a few months, a theater was the only way to watch what we think is one of the best Margot Robbie movies. But Barbie is now available for Premium Digital Ownership and on Premium VOD platforms. You will want to head to Amazon and Apple TV!

Is Barbie streaming?

Yes! Barbie is available to own digitally and to rent on VOD from September 12, but as it stands, it’s not available as part of any streaming subscriptions right now.

The right platform for Warner Bros. movies at no extra cost is Max, so this is likely where it’s heading. There is no streaming release date just yet, so you’ll have to put on your best pink or blue pastel outfit and visit a cinema or buy it online.

Is Barbie on Netflix?

Barbie is not on Netflix and is unlikely to ever come to Netflix due to how Warner Bros streams its movies on Max (formally HBO Max).

As mentioned above, Warner Bros. Discovery content lands on Max, with some exceptions licensed out to other platforms. We don’t expect Barbie to be on Netflix, however, since the two are direct competitors. Still, Netflix has had Warner Bros content on its platform in the past, such as The Conjuring movies, so you never know. Keep your eyes on this page for news!

Is Barbie on Disney Plus?

Barbie is not on Disney Plus and probably never will be, since it’ll stream on Max instead.

There’s a lot of Disney Plus content coming soon, but Barbie won’t be among its catalog since Warner Bros’ streamer is a competitor of Disney’s. Sorry to all you pink fans out there. But the good news is that there is still plenty on Disney Plus to enjoy. Why not watch one of the Marvel series instead?

Is Barbie on Prime Video?

Barbie may not be free for Amazon Prime Video members, but you can purchase or rent the film. So yes, technically, Barbie is on Prime Video, but for an extra cost. 

Amazon Prime Video is one of the digital retailers offering copies of the film. So, if you have an Amazon Prime membership, you can jump on the platform of a pink watch party now. For more information, you can click our link here for a free Amazon Prime membership trial.
