How to stream Hamilton online and on TV around the world

After years spent earning rave reviews on Broadway, we can finally stream Hamilton online from the comfort of our own home. That's a big deal; this is the first time the hit musical has been available outside of the theatre. And luckily, it's easy to get hold of. All you need is a subscription to Disney Plus, a streaming service packed with classic movies, modern TV shows, documentaries, and mega-franchises like Star Wars or Marvel. More importantly, it's a fair bit cheaper than a trip to the show in person.

No matter where you are in the world, all you need to stream Hamilton is a Disney Plus sign-up. The musical's cinematic release has been fast-tracked to July thanks to the coronavirus pandemic (it was originally scheduled to land in theatres October 2021). In other words, we can watch Hamilton online much earlier than anticipated.

Telling the story of American founding father Alexander Hamilton, the Broadway musical has become a sensation over the last few years. In fact, it's won 11 Tony awards. That makes its arrival on Disney Plus - with the original cast, no less - a big deal. It also shows that the streaming service is evolving; it's been limited to family-friendly fare in the past, so the inclusion of a musical with F-bombs during two songs is significant.

Hamilton isn't the only thing on Disney Plus worth your time, though. You can now watch Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker online there, stream The Simpsons too, and binge a few Marvel films before moving on to National Geographic documentaries.

Ready to get started? Great - you'll find everything you need to know about subscribing to Disney Plus below.
