Things are heating up now that we're on the show's fifth episode, so you may be wondering how to watch The Falcon and the Winter Soldier online and see what all the fuss is about. As luck would have it, we've got the best deals on the series right here. Because it's exclusive to Disney Plus members, you'll find offers on the streaming service below. Don't wait too long, though. The Marvel Cinematic Universe series is almost over (the final episode lands on Friday, April 23), so being able to stream The Falcon and the Winter Soldier without seeing spoilers is almost impossible.

In terms of which Disney Plus membership you should get to watch The Falcon and the Winter Soldier online, the lack of a Disney Plus free trial means that signing up for a single month is your cheapest bet. Those memberships aren't all that expensive; a standard month costs $7.99 in the US, £7.99 in the UK, and $11.99 in both Canada and Australia. Plus, you can cancel at any time - you're not tied into a contract, meaning that you can stream The Falcon and the Winter Soldier before dropping Disney Plus if you'd prefer.

No matter what, you'll need at least one month of Disney Plus to watch The Falcon and the Winter Soldier in its entirety. New episodes drop each Friday, and there are six in total. Seeing as we've had four already, this season's run should finish at the end of April 2021 as a result (April 23, to be precise). Grab a subscription now and you'll be able to watch the whole thing before your membership rolls on to its second month.

  2. Captain America: The Winter Soldier
  3. Avengers: Age of Ultron
  4. Ant-Man
  5. Captain America: Civil War
