Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse was one of the hit movies this summer and if you're like me, you already need to rewatch. And now there is good news! Across the Spider-Verse is officially available to stream on Netflix and will eventually be available to stream on Disney Plus. That means you no longer need to spend money to rent the move from a video-on-demand service to get your Spider-Verse fix.

The second of three Spider-Verse movies ('Beyond' is coming eventually but is currently delayed), Across the Spider-Verse brings Miles Morales (Shameik Moore) and Gwen Stacy (Hailee Steinfeld) back in touch thanks to the chaos caused by aspiring super-villain The Spot (Jason Schwartzman). This brings Miles deeper inside the Spider-Verse and a secret network of Spider-Men protecting the multiverse as well as a dark conspiracy overshadowing everything.

So here's everything you need to know about how to watch Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse on a few of the best streaming services.

Is Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse streaming on Netflix?

Yes, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is streaming on Netflix in the U.S. as of October 31. It's unclear at this time when other regions will get access, but hopefully, the wait won't be too long. 

In theory, Across the Spider-Verse will debut on Netflix first in other regions as well, as the current Sony and Netflix contract was billed as "a new source of first-run films for Netflix movie lovers worldwide" when it was announced. However, we've noticed that this hasn't necessarily been the case. For example, in Australia, you'll need Prime Video to stream Across the Spider-Verse.

Is Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse streaming on Disney Plus?

Eventually, yes — but not yet. Sony has a deal with Disney for movies released between 2022 and 2026, which includes Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse. This deal, combined with Sony's deal with Netflix puts Sony films on Disney Plus after Netflix. Per the terms of these deals, Netflix has what's called the "Pay 1 window," and Disney Plus gets the "Pay 2 window."

The good news is that now that the Netflix streaming date is official, we can make a pretty good educated guess as to when Disney Plus will get Across the Spider-Verse. Based on past reporting and industry standards, the Pay 2 window will likely start either 12 months after the Pay 1 window or 18 months after the theatrical release date. 

With that in mind, we expect Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse to start streaming on Disney Plus sometime between October 2024 and December 2024.

Where to watch the rest of the Spider-Verse

If you want to watch the rest of the Spider-Man movies...well, it's surprisingly complex. Because Sony doesn't have its own streaming service, it makes deals with a wide range of streamers based on what it thinks is the best deal for it. 

Thankfully, at least in the U.S., future movies should hit Netflix first and then go to Disney Plus — at least until Sony's current deals with both run out in 2026 — but for stuff that's already come out, there are multiple places you'll need to go to find all the best Spider-Man movies.

Note: The following information is based on U.S. streaming availability. Other regions' availability may differ based on Sony's deals with the various streaming services.

First, let's start with the other Spider-Verse movie. Currently, if you want to watch Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, you'll either need a cable TV subscription or rent it from video-on-demand providers. It is not currently streaming on a streaming service. If you have cable though, you can log into FX Now and watch using your cable TV provider.

Most of the other popular Spider-Man movies are on Disney Plus. Tom Holland's Spider-Man: Homecoming is there, as is the entire Tobey Maguire Spider-Man trilogy and both of Andrew Garfield's The Amazing Spider-Man movies. If you want to branch out beyond just Spider-Men, the first Venom movie is also on Disney Plus.

If you want to watch Venom's sequel, Venom: Let There Be Carnage, or complete the Tom Holland trilogy, you're going to need a Starz subscription. Those three movies are also available for rent through video-on-demand services if you don't want to add another monthly subscription to your budget.

Finally, there's one final Sony Spider-Man universe movie out there: Morbius. If you want to watch the (occasionally) villainous vampire there is good news — it's currently available to stream on Netflix. So once you're done watching Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse you can queue it up to watch next.
