How to stream Spider-Man: No Way Home in Australia
Currently, there is no way to stream Spider-Man: No Way Home in Australia, but there is a way to figure out where it will end up. Speaking with Deadline, the CEO Starz, Jeffrey Hirsch, said that Spider-Man: No Way Home will hit the American streaming service, at latest, within the next six months, which means it’ll be available for streaming on Starz in early August 2022 (at the latest).
Now it’s just a question of how to watch Starz in Australia.
Thankfully, there is a way to stream Spider-Man: No Way Home in Australia, but you’ll need to have a virtual private network (VPN) subscription.
How to watch Starz in Australia
If you’re already signed up to one or more of the most popular streaming services in Australia—namely, Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and/or Stan—you already have access to a whole lot of Starz content, including popular TV shows. For example, Power and its Power Book spin-offs are all on Stan. All three seasons of American Gods are streamable on Amazon Prime Video. Meanwhile, five seasons of Outlander are on Netflix, but the latest season is only streamable on Binge or Foxtel Now.
This presents something of a pickle when it comes to determining which streaming service in Australia will receive Spider-Man: No Way Home first, particularly given how Netflix only made its multi-year deal to stream Sony movies for the US (and only for movies released from 2022 onwards). To highlight the streaming complexity, you can watch Tom Holland’s first standalone Spidey outing Spider-Man: Homecoming on Binge or Foxtel Now. But you’ll have to jump over to Netflix for Spider-Man: Far From Home.
Unless another streaming company buys the initial streaming rights to Spider-Man: Far From Home in Australia, you should be able to stream the flick on Amazon Prime Video by using the StarzPlay channel add-on. Prime Video has a seven-day trial for StarzPlay, but after that it costs an additional $3.99 per month for the channel add-on. Hold out for later this year if you want a shot at streaming No Way Home during a free trial period.
Outside of StarzPlay, the only certain way to stream Spider-Man: No Way Home in Australia later this year is by using the US-geoblocked Starz streaming service.
While this will slow down your overall internet connection (which is why we advise using an NBN 50 plan as minimum for VPN streaming), it will allow you to stream The Batman and other content from HBO Max.

How to use a VPN to stream Starz in Australia
The good news is that Starz has a free seven-day trial, but the slightly more challenging news is that the US streaming service will block you streaming if you connect from an Australian IP address. That means you’re going to need a virtual private network (VPN) like NordVPN or PrivadoVPN and connect to a US server. After that, head to the Starz website, then sign up for your seven-day trial by entering your email address.
Unfortunately, the trial requires you to enter some payment details, so be sure to set a calendar reminder to cancel after seven days if you don’t want to be charged. Select a monthly or quarterly subscription, then enter credit card or PayPal details. You might hit a wall here, as geoblocked US services tend to do a cursory blocking of potential Australian sign-ups based on where your credit card or PayPal account is based. You can get around this with a US credit card (virtual or physical) or US PayPal account, but that’s a bit finnicky.
The slightly less complicated way works on Android devices. On an Android device, google ‘Starz APK’ then download and install the Starz app from a reputable APK website. Next use NordVPN, PrivadoVPN or another Android VPN app to connect to a US server. Once connected, open the Starz app and follow the sign-up steps, opting to pay via Google Play, which should allow you to use Australian payment details.
As with anything that bypasses geoblocking steps, you run the risk of having your account cancelled or blocked. If that doesn’t bother you, you should now be able to stream Starz easily from your Android device, a web browser, or any other compatible device that lets you use a VPN.
