Where to watch Ford v Ferrari
It’s one of the most notorious rivalries in the history of motorsport, and in 2019, the tale of the decades-long battle between two of the world’s greatest race car manufacturers hit the big screen. Starring Matt Damon as legendary Ford driver Carroll Shelly and Christian Bale as his hot-tempered best friend (and racer in his own right), Ken Miles, Ford v Ferrari chronicles Team Ford’s mission to finally beat the ever-dominant Ferrari racing team at the 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans race.
But don’t go thinking Ford v Ferrari is just for rev heads – there’s more than enough drama, smart editing and bromance to keep even the most sports-averse people (myself included) hooked. After all, it’s not like every old sports flick can boast two Oscars and a score of 92% on Rotten Tomatoes.
How to watch Ford v Ferrari in Australia
Option 1: Disney Plus
Surprisingly, the only streaming service (with the exception of the eye-wateringly expensive Foxtel Now) offering Ford v Ferrari is newcomer Disney Plus. Not only does it have every Disney flick you could hope to get your hands on (and The Mandalorian, of course), but ever since Mickey Mouse and co. took over Fox, it’s also the first place you’ll be able to catch the studio’s new releases. Unfortunately there’s no longer a free trial for new users (unless you’re an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscriber), but at $8.99 per month on a no-contract basis, you can always sign up to catch your favourites then leave at any time.
Option 2: Foxtel Now
As we mentioned above, Foxtel Now is pretty damn expensive, so we wouldn’t recommend it as a first choice. That said, if you’re already a subscriber (or have cash to burn), go for it! If you’re looking for a cheaper alternative to Foxtel, the entertainment giant’s new streaming service Binge is about as close as you’ll get (with a few notable omissions, Ford v Ferrari being one of them). It’ll set you back just $10 a month with a two-week free trial.
Option 3: Rent or buy
Prefer to pay a one-off fee, watch your movie and be on your way? As long as you have an iOS or Android device, Mac, PC, Chromecast, Apple TV or compatible gaming console, you can catch Ford v Ferrari as a digital rental from $2.99. At the time of writing, the film is available on Apple TV, Amazon, Google Play, Microsoft, YouTube and Fetch.
