Here's Where You Can Stream World War Z Online

We're far removed enough from it at this point that it may not even scan as the phenomenon it was. But looking back, it really is stunning how "World War Z" managed to go the distance in that summer of 2013.

The film, a screen adaptation of the eponymous 2006 novel by Max Brooks, was in many ways a huge gamble: a dour, sweaty, downbeat ground-level romp with a tone wavering between thriller, action-adventure, and all-out horror. It was budgeted at superhero flick level, focused on characters the majority of world audiences weren't familiar with, and was preceded by significant production drama. But through the sheer filmmaking muscle of Marc Forster, Brad Pitt, and company, "World War Z" managed to defy the odds and enrapture audiences, earning a total of $540 million worldwide to become nothing less than the highest-grossing zombie movie of all time (via Box Office Mojo).

Since plans for a sequel never did pan out, fans of the movie will have to make do with rewatches until further notice. Whether you're among those fans or just someone who wants to watch the movie for the first time, here are the easiest ways to stream "World War Z" online.

World War Z is streaming on a multitude of platforms

Thankfully, there are many options for home viewing of "World War Z." The easiest way is, of course, to stream it, provided that you have a subscription to one of the services that have the movie in their catalog. As of now, those services would be Paramount+, Epix, and DirecTV, as well as the Paramount+ and Epix Prime Video channels and the Epix Roku Premium Channel. Each of those platforms provides "World War Z" for streaming at no additional charge if you're already a subscriber, with Paramount+ even offering the option to watch it in 4K.

If you don't have a subscription to any of those services or channels, you can still watch "World War Z" online, but you're going to have to pay to rent or buy it as an individual title. That can be done on Prime Video, Google Play, YouTube, Vudu, the Microsoft Store, Redbox, Apple TV+, AMC On Demand, or DirecTV — most of these starting around the $2.99 price point for a standard digital rental. Additionally, Spectrum On Demand offers the movie for individual rental, but not for purchase.
