How to watch and stream Die Hard in order – whether it’s Christmas or not

Alright, we concede - it's a Christmas movie.

Big questions in life include ‘what came first, the chicken or the egg?’ and is Die Hard a Christmas movie, or is it just a movie that just happens to be set at Christmas? (It’s a Christmas movie and we won’t hear otherwise.)


The query has plagued fans of the film for decades (or, at least, since 1988), with even Die Hard star Bruce Willis weighing in on the matter. For the record, he doesn’t believe the action-thriller is a Christmas movie. (He’s wrong, by the way. Poor form, Bruce).

But whether you think it’s a film for the festive season or not, it’s still a damn good movie and one of the greatest action flicks to ever grace the screen – and here’s how you can watch it over Christmas.

Where can I watch Die Hard?

All four sequels are available to stream on Disney+ as part of the Disney+ Star content that’s been added to the platform, but strangely, the first does not appear to be included – here’s hoping that’s just temporary.

In addition to Disney+, you can buy Die Hard and the other sequels on Prime Video. iTunes also has the full collection available to purchase.

How to watch the Die Hard films in order
