Where Are The Purge Movies Available To Stream?
Here is where things start to get hard. The Purge movies and TV shows are all over streaming services right now, so we’ll go in order, starting with the first movie, The Purge, from 2013. The first movie in this scary series can be watched for free on Peacock, but there are ads. Hate ads? You can always choose Peacock’s Premium tier, or you can rent or buy The Purge digitally from Amazon, Google Play, YouTube, or iTunes.
The Purge: Anarchy is the next movie. You can also watch the follow-up on Peacock, with or without ads. You can also get it at your favorite digital store.
Now it’s time for the movie with the best title, The Purge: Election Year. We have great news for you if you can use FuboTV, FX NOW, or Direct TV. All three of these services let you watch Election Year. If not, you should still rent or buy something digital.
The streaming setup for The First Purge is the same as it was before. You’re good to go if you can use FuboTV, FX NOW, or Direct TV. If not, you can always rent the movie from Amazon, Google, iTunes, or YouTube, or buy it.
Last, there’s the TV show The Purge. Here is probably where you’ll have the most luck. No matter what kind of Hulu plan you have, you can watch both seasons. You can also watch The Purge on Peacock, but only if you have a Premium account.
When Will The Forever Purge Be Available to Stream?
On July 2, Universal Pictures will put out the movie The Forever Purge. It was supposed to come out last July, but the COVID-19 pandemic pushed it back. The good news is that it will be in theatres on that date. Now, the bad news. Universal hasn’t said that this movie will be available to stream while The Forever Purge is in theatres.
But there’s also good news! Universal movies go to streaming pretty quickly, but it all depends on how well they do their first weekend. If the movie doesn’t make more than $50 million in its first weekend in theatres, it will be available on Premium Video on Demand for about $20 17 days later. If more than $50 million is made? 31+ days later. That means you could rent The Forever Purge as early as July 19 or sometime after August 2. We’ll have to wait and see if theatergoers decide to get rid of the movie sooner or later.
