We can finally Spider-Man: No Way Home online and at home (and now, legally). And it's even on a streaming service! 

After a long theatrical exclusivity window, the third chapter of Tom Holland and Jon Watts' trilogy of Spider-Man movies is finally coming home. And, don't worry, we don't have any spoilers in this article.

Originally slated for a March 22, 2022 digital release — which is not to be confused with a streaming release — Spider-Man: No Way Home hit video on demand services a week early on March 15. This is possibly because an HD copy of the film leaked early. But, now, Spider-Man: No Way Home is actually out on Starz. No, not the Disney Plus Star Channel, the Starz streaming service in the U.S..

If you've somehow managed to avoid the big plot details, Spider-Man: No Way Home is a big and complicated comic book movie that triumphantly combines a heartfelt story and more fan service than you might think possible. 

Distraught by how his decisions have affected those around him after Mysterio exposed his secret identity, Peter Parker is trying to figure out how to resume a normal life after having saved the world multiple times. So he makes a house-call to Doctor Strange for a favor that goes very wrong very fast. 

Reality begins to cave in on Parker and Strange, in a literal way, and seemingly every rule is broken. The film (much like WandaVision and Loki), seems to set the table for Doctor Strange 2, aka Dr. Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

Peter Parker is even confronted by a villain he's never met before, but one who seemingly knows him. How does all this work? Will Peter ever be able to make things right for MJ and Nate, much less Aunt May? The only way to find out is to watch Spider-Man: No Way Home online, which you will be able to do soon. 

Oh, and a bit of news on Sony's universe of Spider-Man movies: Euphoria's Sydney Sweeney is joining the live action version of the Spider-verse, in the upcoming Madame Web.

No, Spider-Man: No Way Home isn't on Disney Plus yet. But it is on Starz (opens in new tab):

And when you buy Spider-Man: No Way Home from any of the below platforms, you also get a free feature that isn't sold alongside the movie. Check out our guide to Spider-Man: No Way Home's hidden bonus feature to learn more.

Starz (opens in new tab) is $8.99 per month, but it also has a 7-day free trial! Starz isn't just home to Spider-Man: No Way Home, it's also got shows such as Heels, P-Valley and other Sony Spider-Man universe movies such as the Venom movies.

Is Spider-Man: No Way Home on Disney Plus?

Spider-Man: No Way Home is a long way from a streaming service, but it will be coming to two over the next couple years. 

Back in February, we learned that No Way Home would hit Starz (not to be confused with Disney Plus' Star Channel outside of the U.S.).

Starz has No Way Home as an exclusive for the next 18 months before it heads to Disney Plus thanks to a Sony/Disney deal. So, Disney Plus may not get No Way Home until as late as the end of 2023.

In the meantime, you can get your MCU fix on Disney Plus with the upcoming Moon Knight, which is getting rave early reactions.  In other MCU news, Disney Plus has a new name for the Marvel Netflix shows that has us wondering what MCU implications may be at hand.

How to watch Spider-Man: No Way Home from anywhere on Earth

If you're stuck abroad — away from access to the digital platform of your choice, and unable to find Spider-Man: No Way Home — you're not out of luck when it comes to getting your hands on the movie. With the help of a virtual private network (VPN), you can buy the latest Spider-Man movie (and use the other services from their home country) no matter where you are. 

Our pick for the best VPN is ExpressVPN (opens in new tab), which is easy to use and delivers fast internet speeds, making it simple to set up for streaming in no time at all. It also works on practically any device, starting with iOS and Android and including streaming devices such as the Amazon Fire TV Stick and Apple TV along with game consoles like PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Our favorite VPN service, ExpressVPN (opens in new tab), is a top choice for those looking to watch Trolls World Tour. It's got a solid mix of safety, speed and ease-of-use. Plus, you get an extra 3 months free if you sign up for a year. And, heck, if you've never used a VPN before and are curious and not sure, there's a 30-day money-back guarantee if you just want to give it a try.

Meanwhile, NBC's canceled another show and HBO Max offers hope for fan favorites — including Mare of Easttown's return. Interestingly enough, one canceled NBC show is the top Netflix TV show right now. We're curious how long that will last, and if it means good things for fans hoping for a fifth and final season. Oh, and in the Disney side of things? Disney Plus revealed the Ms. Marvel release date and first trailer that teases changes to her comic origins. Looking for something else to watch?
