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 membership. 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 Raya and the Last Dragon there, catch up with the MCU and watch The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, and binge a few Star Wars films before moving on to National Geographic documentaries.

Ready to get started? Great - you'll find everything you need to know about subscribing with a Disney Plus sign-up below. Raise a glass to freedom!

Stream Hamilton - US


Disney Plus | $7.99 per month
Want to stream Hamilton in the US? It's simple - just sign up to Disney Plus. The cheapest deal around at the moment is a standard month for just $7.99, offering hundreds of hours of movies, documentaries, and TV for your cash. If you just want to watch Hamilton online and leave, it's also easy to cancel your membership. Think you might want to stick around? There's a sweet offer that gets you Disney Plus, Hulu, and ESPN Plus for $13.99 per month or $19.99p/m without Hulu ads. That's our favorite so far, and comfortably the best Disney Plus bundle we've seen to date.

Stream Hamilton - Canada


Disney Plus | $11.99 per month
Want to watch Hamilton online in Canada? Good news, friends - all you need to do is sign up to Disney Plus. The musical (along with loads of other binge-worthy material) is available there for $11.99 per month. Because there's no binding, long-term contract, it's easy to cancel before your month is up (ah, the things we do now that the Disney Plus free trial is gone). That means you can leave once you've watched Hamilton and had your fill of everything else Disney's got to offer.

Stream Hamilton - UK


Disney Plus | £7.99 per month
Unlike other Disney Plus acquisitions (you couldn't watch Onward online in Britain at first, for example), Hamilton is available in the UK as well. And because a single month is fairly cheap at £7.99, it's easy to sign up, watch the musical, and cancel before the membership rolls over. You'll have plenty of other things to binge once you're done with Hamilton, too. Disney Plus is armed with everything from Star Wars and Marvel to Pixar flicks. That makes a Disney Plus gift card a good present for a friend or loved one.

Hunting for Hamilton in Australia? Don't worry, it's on Disney Plus right now. We'd recommend grabbing a single month's subscription for $11.99 ($12.99 in New Zealand) and seeing how you go from there - it's easy enough to cancel if you don't fancy maintaining the membership. Just remember, there's plenty more good content on its way. The Mandalorian's second season is in the works, an Obi-Wan show is coming, and a Loki series with Tom Hiddleston isn't far behind.
