How to watch Fast and the Furious in the UK, US and abroad

Beep, beep! We’re coming through, Toretto! Here’s a guide on how to watch all the Fast and the Furious films

The latest offshoot of the Fast and Furious franchise, Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw, became the 11th of its furious ilk. However, the fun doesn’t stop there. Fast & Furious 9 is currently in production, scheduled for release in May 2020.

This wouldn’t have been possible without the first film that started it all. Despite mixed reviews, 2001’s ‘The Fast and the Furious’ became a commercial success. Vin Diesel (that’s his stage name, by the way) and Paul Walker, who were relative unknowns until that point, became household names as Dominic Toretto and Detective Brian O’Conner.

As the franchise kept growing, different cast members were gradually added to the list, until Fast and Furious reached almost superhero status with a stellar ensemble cast including Michelle Rodriguez, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, Jason Statham, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, Gal Gadot, Sung Kang and Elsa Pataky – many of whom dip in and out of different movies unless, of course, their characters are killed off.

People wondered how the franchise would move ahead after lead actor Walker passed away during the filming of Furious 7 but – thanks to the magic of CGI – his brothers stepped in to complete his filming sequences. The filmmakers then rewrote the script to give him and his onscreen wife (Brewster) a happy ending.

The Fast and the Furious franchise is now the ninth highest-grossing film franchise of all time, ahead of Jurassic Park, Batman and Transformers. Apart from great cars, well-choreographed races, macho fight sequences and over-the-top stunts, the franchise also has a great soundtrack.

If you’ve already seen the latest movie but your automobile thirst has not been quenched yet, then you’re probably interested in rewatching the previous films. We’d be taking you for a ride if we said it’s going to be easy to find a platform that allows you to watch them all, but we’ll try our best.

List of all the Fast and the Furious films

We mentioned at the start that there are 11 Fast and Furious Films that have been released so far. If you counted nine films, then you’re nearly right, because there are two prelude films that are also officially counted as part of the ‘Fast and the Furious’ franchise.

However, it’s worth noting that these two prelude films are not included on the streaming services mentioned below. They mostly come as special edition discs with the Blu-ray versions of the accompanying film.

  1. The Fast and the Furious (2001)
  2. The Turbo Charged Prelude for 2 Fast 2 Furious (Prelude to 2F2F)
  3. 2 Fast 2 Furious (2003)
  4. The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift (2006)
  5. Los Bandoleros (Prelude to Fast & Furious)
  6. Fast & Furious (2009)
  7. Fast Five (2011)
  8. Fast & Furious 6 (2013)
  9. Furious 7 (2015)
  10. The Fate of the Furious
  11. Hobbs & Shaw

How to watch Fast and Furious in the US and UK: iTunes and Google Play

In today’s smartphone day-in-age it’s nigh on impossible to not have either a Google Play or an Apple ID. Like Dom and Brian, it looks like Apple and Google are neck-and-neck in this furious race. The first eight films (again, excluding the two preludes and Hobbs & Shaw) are available for £7.99 each, or as a bundle which works out slightly cheaper.

Both platforms also have the first eight films, but its name differs slightly based on which side of the pond you live; it’s called ‘Fast & Furious 8-Movie Collection’ in the UK and ‘Fast & Furious: The Ultimate Ride Collection’ in the US. This bundle costs £39.99 on Google Play and £29.99 on iTunes in the UK, and about $50 in the US.

How to watch Fast and Furious abroad and the UK: Netflix

Netflix is seriously lagging behind and desperately needs some NOS when it comes to updating its Fast and the Furious catalogue. Fast and Furious 7 is only available in the Netherlands and Spain. Meanwhile, Fast and Furious 8 is available in the UK, Canada, India, Portugal, Italy and a few more countries.

Unfortunately, these are the only two of the franchise you’ll be able to access on Netflix. If, however, you are still interested in a membership then you’ll be pleased to know that plans start at £5.99, and all plans come with a 30-day free trial. Included in your membership is a huge array of acclaimed original series and popular movies to stream to your heart’s content.

How to watch Fast and Furious abroad: Use a VPN

Most popular streaming services use geo-blocking to restrict someone in the US, for instance, from accessing content on Amazon Prime Video UK. A VPN – or virtual private network – lets you browse the web anonymously which comes in handy when you come up against a geo-blocked website or service.

VPNs tunnel your connection through any country you choose to trick your device into thinking that it’s located that place, so you can access all its content on any device. In addition to this, they don’t retain user logs and your IP address is encrypted which leaves no data footprint, as you would on a usual browsing session.

ExpressVPN: We haven’t tested a VPN that’s faster or more secure. You get 24/7 customer service, simultaneous use on up to five devices and proof from an independent security audit conducted by PwC that they keep zero user logs. Our readers get three months free when they subscribe to the one-year plan, saving you a massive 49%!

Surfshark VPN: Surfshark is fairly new on the VPN scene but that’s not to say that it’s lacking in impressive features. You can use it on as many devices at one time as you like and it comes with a 30-day-money-back guarantee. It’s one of the cheaper VPNs on the market, making it ideal for those who are looking for privacy on a budget.
