Watch The Last Dance online: stream the Michael Jordan documentary in full with our guide

watch the last dance stream michael jordan documentary online

With a full sports schedule still looking like a long time away, we'd seriously advise that you watch The Last Dance online. The final episode just aired, so you're free to stream the Michael Jordan documentary in its entirety as fast as you like.

Over the ten episodes, you'll journey through Michael Jordan's college basketball days while always teasing more and more behind-the-scenes details about the all-important 1997/1998 season. Don't worry, no spoilers here.

The new ESPN documentary has been a labor of love for years now, and even LeBron James pleaded with ESPN to release it earlier than planned. Luckily, they listened. Thanks LeBron - The Last Dance is a great watch for both hardcore fans of the sport or even the most casual overseas fan.

And let's face it, Michael Jordan is still arguably the biggest sporting icon the world has ever seen; footage of him in action is still breathtaking. Tom Brady? Cristiano Ronaldo? Sorry guys, you're way behind.

The Last Dance documentary uses extensive footage originally shot around the 97/98 season when the 'aging' Chicago Bulls were under enormous pressure to rebuild the team from their General Manager, and there's certainly a foreboding vibe to the show, which is developing it into a compelling watch. That old footage, combined with brand new interviews with Michael Jordan himself, Scottie Pippen, Dennis Rodman, and a host other key players, coaches, and journalists has turned this into something beyond just another fond look down memory lane at one of the world's biggest superstars.

If you're trying to watch The Last Dance Michael Jordan documentary from somewhere not mentioned above, your best bet will be to grab Netflix and then use a VPN to change your location to one of the regions mentioned above (Canda, UK, or Australia, for example). 

Your other option outside of Netflix is VPNing to a US location and signing up for Sling TV's orange tier, but that's a fair bit more expensive each month.

We've tested a wide range of VPN options when we investigated our best VPN and best VPN for Netflix guides, and we found ExpressVPN to be our favorite. With a massive selection of reliable server locations to connect to around the world and reassuring privacy options, there's a lot to love about Express VPN. Plus, you can set up automatic protection on any public WiFi system, making it safer than ever to browse and shop online on the go.

1: Get a cheap VPN installed. There's a great offer on right now where you can get an additional three months FREE on a 12-month package and save 49% (shorter packages are available too). ExpressVPN works on a massive range of devices like laptops, MacBooks, Amazon Fire TV Stick, Apple TV, iPhone, Android mobiles and more. ExpressVPN is also offering a 30-day money-back guarantee, which is great if you change your mind and decide the VPN isn't for you.

2: Connect to a UK/Canadian server. While you can connect to a server from any of the countries that we have laid out above, a UK/Canadian will likely prove to be the easiest for watching The Last Dance online. 

3: Head over to Netflix. Once you set your location as above, simply log into Netflix on that device and search for The Last Dance to enjoy one of the most acclaimed documentaries in years.
