If you're a 007 fan looking to watch James Bond movies in order, we have good news. While you'll still need a couple of streaming services to watch every single Bond adventure, at least the list is shrinking. Prime Video and Amazon's new MGM Plus streaming service combined will get you nearly every Bond movie ever made, aside from Never Say Never Again and Spectre. And Prime Video currently has most of the James Bond movies if you only want to have one streaming service to watch James Bond, with 23 out of the 27 films available to stream now.

The James Bond movie franchise has been going strong since 1962, with the release of Dr. No. The Bond movies have attracted a fervent fanbase and the franchise has become one of the most iconic in Hollywood history. This legacy continued most recently in No Time to Die, which featured Daniel Craig as the secret agent for the final time.

The James Bond movies are based on Ian Fleming's novels and short stories, first published in 1953. There are 27 films in total, 25 of which were produced by Eon Productions. Eon, founded by producers Albert R. Broccoli and Harry Saltzman, now own the rights to all of Fleming's novels after decades of contentious legal battles. 

Throughout the Bond franchise, six actors have portrayed the dashing, debonaire agent: Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig. (A seventh, David Niven, played Bond in the non-Eon version of Casino Royale in 1967.)  With Craig's run now over, we've already been pondering who could replace him as the next James Bond.

Are the James Bond movies on Netflix?

Unfortunately for fans of the most popular streaming service, Netflix is no longer the home to any of the James Bond movies. It's not impossible that Bond will one day return to Netflix though, so stay tuned here for future updates.

More movies to watch online

Looking for more big sagas of movies? We've got you covered. For starters, one service lets you watch the John Wick movies online. You can consume most of the Marvel movies in order on Disney Plus, but there's still some MCU movies you can't get there.

As for the task of watching the Fast & Furious movies in order? It's difficult, as they're spread across a lot of services — much like James Bond's movies.
