How to watch Avengers Infinity War

Avengers Endgame releases on 25 April in the UK and 26 April in the US. Here's how to watch Infinity War to prepare yourself for Endgame

Marvel 2019’s blockbuster Avengers Endgame has released in some part of Europe and if early reviews are anything to go by, this could be one of – if not – the biggest film of 2019. 

Review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes has given it a 97% rating, calling it “exciting, entertaining and emotionally impactful” and most websites have given it a four or five-star review. 

Avengers Infinity War is the culmination of everything you need to watch before watching the upcoming Endgame. Marvel’s cinematic masterpiece is not only the highest-grossing movie of 2018, but one of the highest-grossing movies of all time.

April 2019 will go down as a milestone month for both TV and cinema. On TV, the worldwide smash-hit Game of Thrones has returned for its eighth and final season. In cinema, the (remaining) Avengers – as we know them – assemble one last time to take down Thanos and his seemingly invincible Infinity Gauntlet in Endgame.

Even though Game of Thrones is more of a definitive end to a series, Endgame will be a seminal moment for the Avengers franchise. It’s almost a given that Endgame will mark the exit of a few key superheroes we’ve come to love and move the spotlight onto the newer recruits, such as Captain Marvel, Black Panther, Scarlet Witch, Black Widow, Spiderman, Bucky and Falcon.

We’ve written a detailed guide on how to catch up with all the Game of Thrones episodes before season eight airs in a few days, so it’s only fair we help you catch up with Avengers Infinity War before Avengers Endgame hits theatres in the UK on 24 April.

Watch Avengers Infinity War in the UK

Here are a few ways you can watch Avengers Infinity War legally in the UK and US.

How to watch Avengers Infinity War: Sky TV

If you have Sky TV with the Sky Cinema package, you may have already noticed the movie playing almost every evening. Sky changes its Cinema package as and when new deals appear. At the moment, you can add Sky Cinema to your existing Sky TV package for £11 a month, but you’re tied to an 18-month contract.

After you’ve done that, you can navigate to Sky Cinema from your main Sky TV screen. You’ll find Infinity War in the Superheroes menu on the left. Alternatively, you can go to the Avengers Infinity War page on Sky and log in to your account to see options to record, watch or download it.

If you don’t have Sky, you’ll first need to sign up to Sky TV and get a Sky Q box, which we’ve reviewed glowingly here. It’s a great investment even though you need to pay a one-time setup fee.

Stream on Netflix

Avengers Infinity War is available to stream on Netflix in the US, alongside Marvel’s 2017 blockbusters Thor Ragnarok and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2, and last year’s Oscar-nominated hit Black Panther – all of which include strong characters who are crucial to the plot in both Infinity War and Endgame.

Watch Avengers Infinity War from anywhere in the world

If you live in the US but are away from the country – or if you live somewhere else – and want to catch up on your Marvel backlog while away, then your best option is to download and install a VPN. Doing this tricks your device into thinking that you’re browsing from any country that you choose. If you’re not sure which VPN to go for, read our guide on the best VPNs of 2019. Of these, NordVPN is our clear favourite.

Apart from being available for a wide-ranging of devices, you get a seven-day free trial and can use it on up to six devices simultaneously, which is ideal for a big family or a group of friends. It has servers in over 60 countries, so you can access geoblocked content from any device.

Buy NordVPN now

Our second favourite, PureVPN, takes a slightly different approach. You first need to choose what you want to use it for. Select the Stream option, then choose the US server. You can now log in to Netflix, search for and stream all the Marvel content. Like NordVPN, PureVPN is available for a wide range of devices and you can use it on up to five simultaneously.
