Bond, James Bond, has been thrilling audiences for more than 60 years. That’s some lengthy staying power, particularly in light of more recent cinematic universes, including Harry Potter and The Lord of the Rings. No matter who your favourite 007 is—whether it’s a classic pick like Sean Connery or the better choice of Daniel Craig—you actually have a couple of choices of watching the 20-odd official James Bond movies and even the two ring-ins.

Here's how to stream James Bond movies in Australia.

There’s a lot of competition between streaming services in Australia, generally with a land grab for iconic IPs. Netflix has Seinfeld. Stan has Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul. And Prime Video has James Bond.

That’s unsurprising given Amazon finalised a deal for the rights to MGM properties in May 2022, which includes every James Bond movie. There is a catch, though. Before this deal, Stan was the place to watch every James Bond movie ever made up to and including the release of Spectre. And that’s still the case today. You can watch every official James Bond release up to Spectre, alongside the original Casino Royale (from 1967) and Sean Connery’s return to 007 in Never Say Never Again.

Basically, if you have a Stan subscription and not an Amazon Prime subscription, you’re good to watch every James Bond movie ever made except for the most recent one, No Time to Die (though that may change). Admittedly, that’s likely to change once the current licensing deal expires, which means Prime Video is the safest bet for watching every James Bond movie today and into the future.

James Bond release date in Australia

Almost every James Bond movie has been produced by Eon films, except for the 1967 take on Casino Royale and Sean Connery’s return in Never Say Never Again (1983). Dr. No was the first James Bond movie, which hit cinemas in 1962. The latest James Bond movie is No Time to Die, released in 2021.

Stan originally signed a deal with MGM to get exclusive streaming rights for James Bond movies in Australia in 2018. According to the Australian Financial Review, No Time to Die is expected to be added to Stan’s James Bond collection in 2023.

Here’s a look at every James Bond movie, the year of release, the James Bond actors and which streaming service they’re available on in Australia.

What is James Bond about?

Every James Bond movie tells the story of an MI6 secret agent, codenamed 007, who must stop various villains from achieving their typically world-ending goals. The Sean Connery James Bond movies are more serious in tone with plenty of action. George Lazenby’s James Bond movie continues this theme with more of a character focus and a particularly harrowing ending for his solo outing as 007.

The Roger Moore James Bond movies are pun-packed and lighter in tone. Timothy Dalton’s James Bond movies are effectively proto-Craig 007 flicks, with more grounded action and a darker tone. Pierce Brosnan’s James Bond movies drift between the seriousness of Connery and the farcical nature of Moore. Finally, Daniel Craig’s James Bond movies are grounded and dark, shifting between thriller and action flicks.

A subscription costs either $79 a year or $9.99 a month ($119.88 per year).

On the Prime Video front, the content wasn’t particularly flash at launch. But that’s changed in recent years with the inclusion of James Bond as well as TV hits like The Boys, Invincible, The Expanse, The Wheel of Time andThe Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power. Every year, Prime Video adds more quality content to the service.

Can I watch James Bond overseas?

Because Amazon owns MGM now, James Bond is available to stream anywhere in the world where Prime Video is available. At the time of writing, that’s effectively the entire world, except for mainland China, Iran, North Korea, Russia and Syria. If you have trouble streaming Prime Video from any country, we recommend using a virtual private network (VPN) that handles streaming well in Australia, like one of these options:

  1. Windscribe VPN
  2. PureVPN
  3. ExpressVPN

James Bond movies FAQs

There are many guesses about who will replace Daniel Craig as James Bond. At the time of writing, the frontrunner was English actor Aaron Taylor-Johnson.

Everyone has a personal preference answer for this, typically informed by the Bond they grew up with. But there’s a better answer: all of them (well, the official ones). Combine the accent of Sean Connery, the looks of Pierce Brosnan, the pun dispensing of Roger Moore with the delivery of Timothy Dalton. Throw in the gut-punch ending of George Lazenby’s 007 movie and the physicality of Daniel Craig, and you’ve got the perfect James Bond.

There are 27 James Bond movies in total, but of those, ‘only’ 25 are considered to be official entries. The two others are the 1967 version of Casino Royale and Never Say Never Again from 1983.
