We get this question a lot: How can I watch Stargate episodes and movies online?
Whether you are brand new to the Stargate franchise or just looking to revisit a favorite episode, there are places you can legally watch Stargate SG-1, Atlantis, SGU, and the movies on the Internet — at least with the right subscription. (Episodes and full seasons are also available for sale, if you’d rather download it to own.)
Here’s a quick and handy guide for where the shows are currently streaming for U.S. viewers. Outside the U.S. check these and other digital streaming services and retail outlets. Rights differ from one country to the next, and they change from time to time.

We will try to keep this guide updated as things change. If you know of a change in one of the show’s online availability, please drop us a tip!
UDPATED: October 2019
WATCHING STARGATE SG-1
Amazon: All 10 seasons are currently included with Amazon Prime. Prime subscribers can watch the show’s entire run for no additional cost. (The SG-1 follow-up movies, The Ark of Truth and Continuum, are also currently streaming on Prime. Here’s the order we recommend you watch them in — especially if you are mixing Stargate Atlantis in there, too.)
Hulu: All 10 seasons of SG-1 are available to stream on Hulu (with a paid subscription). Hulu costs $7.99 per month with ads, or $11.99 per month ad-free.
Stargate Command: All 214 episodes of the show are on MGM’s service until December 31 (see below).
Video Quality: Seasons 1 through 7 of Stargate SG-1 are available on standard definition only (since they were produced in an era when HD televisions were not yet common). Seasons 8, 9, and 10 are available in both HD and standard def.
WATCHING STARGATE ATLANTIS
Amazon: All five seasons are currently included with Amazon Prime. Prime subscribers can stream all 100 episodes of the show for no additional cost.
Hulu: All five seasons of SGA are available to watch with your Hulu subscription.
Stargate Command: All 100 episodes of the show are also on MGM’s service until December 31 (see below).
Video Quality: Stargate Atlantis is available in both HD and standard definition. (At retail, HD of course runs a few bucks more.) Streaming services will stream the highest quality your Internet connection is able to handle.
WATCHING STARGATE UNIVERSE
Amazon: Both seasons of SGU are currently available free with Amazon Prime. Prime subscribers can stream all 40 episodes of the show for no additional cost.
Hulu: Both seasons are available on Hulu in their entirety.
Stargate Command: All 40 episodes of the show are also on MGM’s service until December 31 (see below).

WATCHING THE STARGATE MOVIES

WATCHING STARGATE ORIGINS
Stargate Command: The 10-part Web series Origins is exclusively on MGM’s service (which is where it originally premiered) until December 31 (see below).
Video Quality: Stargate Origins is available in both HD and standard definition.
The 2002 animated series isn’t an official part of Stargate’s canon — and it isn’t available to stream online for free from any of the major carriers. However you can now watch through Amazon Prime by purchasing the “CONtv” add-on service ($4.99 per month after a 7-day free trial).
Hoopla also has all 26 episodes available to borrow. This is a service available only to public libraries — so you have to have a library card, and your library must be a Hoopla subscriber. Then you can “check out” episodes for 72 hours at a time, and watch them through mobile devices, a Web browser, and certain streaming apps. There are limits to the number of items you can borrow in a month.
Infinity ran for a single season and is available for purchase on DVD.
IS STARGATE ON NETFLIX?
While it has been in the past, the Stargate TV series are not currently licensed to Netflix in the United States.
MGM has maintained its own online streaming service for the Stargate franchise since 2017, where paid subscribers can watch all three series, three Stargate films, and the 2018 Web series Stargate Origins (as well as additional original content). The studio announced in October 2019 that the service will end on December 31 of this year.
Current All-Access Pass holders can still use the service until that date, but StargateCommand.co is not taking new paid memberships. Customers whose subscription does not expire until 2020 will receive a full refund.

There are more than 350 episodes of Stargate … so get to it! Whether it’s your first time or your fiftieth, we hope you enjoy watching.
While you watch you can find deep-dive episode analyses right here at GateWorld, along with discussion forums for every season and episode, cast and crew interviews, the Stargate Omnipedia, and much more to keep you company along the way.
