Is The Flash streaming? How to watch the DC movie

As The Flash release date arrived after years of chaos and delay. Here's how to watch the DC movie on streaming at home, if you feel the need for speed.

Is The Flash available to stream?

Is The Flash streaming? Before James Gunn took over the reins of the DC Universe, there were a few projects left to release from the old regime. One of those was a particularly strange one, in the shape of time travel oddity The Flash.

Ezra Miller was back in the central role of the DCU‘s fast-talking, fast-moving hero for the first time since the Justice League team-up. We don’t know what roles there will be for The Flash cast in new movies to come but check out our The Flash review to see how the characters fare in this round.

So, if you think The Flash could be one of the best superhero movies of the year and one of the best movies DC has produced to date, you’ll want to know how to watch The Flash. Fortunately, we’ve got you covered, and we’ll have the information with you as quickly as… well, as quick as a flash.

Where can I watch The Flash?

The Flash was released in cinemas on June 16, 2023, and became available for digital rental or purchase from July 18 in the US and July 17 in the UK. It also became available on Max on August 25. 

The movie’s theatrical window closed out with a digital release date, so you’ll be able to add it to your collection now. However, once you’ve read our ‘How fast is The Flash?’ guide, you might regret not wearing the right shoes.

Is The Flash streaming?

The Flash became available to stream on August 25. This is when it was added to Max, the streaming home of most Warner Bros and DC titles.

The movie is also available for digital rental or purchase in the US and the UK.

Is The Flash on Netflix?

No, The Flash isn’t on Netflix, and we think it’s unlikely to join the catalog in the near future.

DC movies are distributed by Warner Bros, which owns its own streamer: Max (formerly HBO Max). We’d expect The Flash to end up there first, before Netflix.

Is The Flash on Disney Plus?

You can’t stream The Flash on Disney Plus now, and we think it’s unlikely you’ll ever see it there. 

Disney owns the Marvel Cinematic Universe, while Warner Bros. controls the DCU. So the Mouse House isn’t likely to stream a rival studio’s movie on its platform.

Is The Flash on Prime Video?

The Flash became available to rent or purchase, but not stream, on Prime Video on July 18, 2023, in the US and July 17 in the UK.

We doubt it’ll ever stream for no extra cost, but if you use Amazon’s digital marketplace you’ll be able to add it to your collection.

Is The Flash on Blu-ray?

The Flash came to Blu-ray on August 29, 2023, in the US and will be available from September 18 in the UK.

The most devoted DC fans will definitely get the chance to add The Flash to their collection now! Expect a 4k release, a steelbook, as well as a regular Blu-Ray and DVD.
