All the ways to watch Ford v Ferrari online

Ford v Ferrari will transport you all the way back to the Le Mans race in 1966. Enzo Ferrari had been used to dominating the French race, but two American car enthusiasts, Carroll Shelby and Ken Miles, are determined to build a car for Ford that has the power to win. Starring Matt Damon and Christian Bale, the movie was nominated for four Oscars, winning two trophies on the night. So if it’s good enough for the Academy Awards, it’s good enough for your streaming time.

You’ll be hard-pressed to find Ford v Ferrari on cable TV, but you can find it on HBO’s newest streaming service, HBO Max. As well as all of HBO’s most-loved series, including Game of Thrones, the platform has endless amounts of highly rated movies. Aside from HBO Max, the only other way to catch a Ford v Ferrari stream is by subscribing to the HBO add-on via Amazon Prime Video or Hulu. The latter two options are pricier, but they come with a lot more choice.

Here’s how much you can expect to pay for all the Ford v Ferrari streaming options.

Streaming Ford v Ferrari

You have three main choices for catching a Ford V Ferrari stream, but all involve HBO in some capacity

Amazon Prime Video

Amazon Prime Video members can access Ford v Ferrari through the service’s HBO channel. That means you’ll also be able to catch top-quality Amazon originals like The Handmaid’s Tale and Fleabag as well as HBO’s Euphoria and epic action flicks like Aquaman. The channel itself costs $14.99/mo. and an Amazon Prime subscription will either cost you $12.99/mo. for the full thing, including online shopping perks, or $8.99/mo. for only the benefits of the streaming service. You can also pay an annual fee of $119/yr. for full Prime membership or $108/yr. for Prime Video access. Amazon Prime Video users can create up to six profiles per account and stream to three devices at the same time, keeping everyone in your household happy.

HBO Max

To avoid having to pay extra for an HBO add-on, head for HBO’s own streaming service, HBO Max. Home to more than 10,000 hours of hugely popular content from The Lord of the Rings and BlacKkKlansman to Westworld and The Wire, it even comes with a few original shows you won’t find anywhere else. All of that will cost you $14.99/mo., but some current HBO subscribers may be able to access the service for free. Once you’re signed up, you’ll be able to enjoy three simultaneous streams, five user profiles for personalization and up to 30 downloads for offline viewing at any one time.

Hulu

Watching Ford v Ferrari via Hulu is slightly more complicated. You’ll need to sign up for a standard Hulu subscription first — on-demand plans start from $5.99/mo., and live TV packages start from $54.99/mo. Then, you’ll have to choose between investing in the HBO add-on or the HBO Max option. Both cost an extra $14.99/mo. on top of your usual Hulu fee. The classic HBO add-on will give you all the best HBO content, including movies like Joker and series like The Sopranos. But if you want access to all of that, plus Max Originals and other shows like Friends, go for the HBO Max add-on. There are a number of ways to upgrade Hulu packages, whether it’s getting more than the standard 50 hours of cloud DVR or upping the two simultaneous streams limit. Each and every addition will, of course, cost you more.

Renting vs. buying Ford v Ferrari

Eliminate the need to subscribe to another streaming service by buying or renting this movie instead.

Amazon Prime Video

If you don’t want to subscribe to Amazon Prime Video, you can buy Ford v Ferrari through the platform instead. You’ll be charged $19.99 whether you opt for the standard definition (SD) or high definition (HD) version.

FandangoNOW

FandangoNOW may not be the name that first comes to mind, but it’s the site that often secures huge movie rights before bigger rivals. Head here if you want to watch Ford v Ferrari in the highest resolution available. To own a 4K digital copy, you’ll pay $19.99. And if you don’t own a 4K-compatible device, the movie will play in the highest definition it can access.

Google Play

Android users will know Google Play for its apps, music and entertainment options. Buying Ford v Ferrari in 4K from this platform only costs $14.99.

iTunes

Owners of iPhones, iPads and iPods will have almost certainly used iTunes over the years. Renowned for its music content, it’s also the place to buy and rent movies and shows. Ford v Ferrari is available to buy in any definition, including 4K, for $19.99.

Microsoft Store

Microsoft Store is ideal for Windows users. Plus, it features new show episodes the day after they air on TV along with mega movies. Own Ford v Ferrari for $19.99 in SD or HD.

Vudu

Vudu is a well-known name in the purchase and rental world. As well as offering good deals on content, it also gives you the chance to watch some titles for free. Unfortunately, Ford v Ferrari doesn’t fall into that category, costing $19.99 to buy in any definition.

Our hot take

If you want to watch Ford take on Ferrari at a moment’s notice, try becoming a Hulu subscriber. Although you’ll have to pay extra for an HBO add-on, you’ll never be bored again. What’s more, there are plenty of free trials to consider before paying a dollar. Those who are interested in Hulu’s on-demand plan can try the package for a month, while the live TV plan can be tried for a week. The HBO add-on even comes with a seven-day free trial, so you can see what it’s really like before committing. Either way, we recommend signing up as soon as possible, since streaming services often change the content they have available.
