How to watch Marvel What If...? and stream the animated series for less

Things are about to get weird as Marvel dives headfirst into the multiverse, so it's not a bad idea to watch Marvel What If...? online if you want to see what's next for the franchise. New episodes drop each Wednesday for anyone with a Disney Plus membership. Because there are nine episodes in total (the finale airs this October 6), you'll need to hold on to your subscription for at least two months if you want to stream Marvel What If...? from start to finish.

That's why we've rounded up the best offers here. If there are any Disney Plus sign-up deals available to let you watch Marvel What If...? online for less, you'll find them below.

Now that the Disney Plus free trial is gone, the cheapest way to get the show would be via a standard monthly Disney Plus subscription. This costs $7.99 in the US, £7.99 in the UK, and $11.99 in both Canada or Australia. However, that isn't necessarily the best method in terms of value. Instead, the honor goes to a three-for-the-price-of-two bundle with Disney Plus, Hulu, and ESPN Plus for $13.99 per month. That way you get something to suit everyone, particularly thanks to Hulu's more grown-up dramas (this has always been a weak spot for the family-friendly Disney Plus).

No matter which deal you go for, the investment's worth it to watch Marvel What If...? online. Although the quality of each episode can vary from 'great' to just OK, they keep getting better with time and almost always sneak in a few "WTF?" moments. More specifically, this animated series lays the groundwork for many future MCU stories thanks to its focus on alternate universes. What if Agent Carter took the super-soldier serum instead of Steve Rogers? What if T'Challa was abducted by aliens instead of Peter Quill? As we mentioned in our review, it's a fun idea with endless possibilities. And because these worlds are canonical additions to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, characters from the show might appear in live-action movies further down the line.
