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!
REVISED: December 2018
First thing’s first: MGM has its own online streaming service for the Stargate franchise, where you can find all three series, three Stargate films, and the 2018 Web series Stargate Origins (as well as more original content, including a behind-the-scenes interview series called “Dialing Home”).
If you don’t already subscribe to one of the services mentioned below and are just looking for access to all of Stargate, consider signing up at StargateCommand.co. As of 2018 the All-Access Pass is only $20 for an entire year of service. (While there isn’t a dedicated app for some media devices, episodes can be cast to your television with certain compatible devices and smart TVs. Check the site for a list.)
For fans in other countries, Stargate Command is working to expand its international availability. As of 2018 you can sign up in the U.S., Canada, United Kingdom, Germany, Australia, and New Zealand.
WATCHING STARGATE SG-1
Amazon: All ten seasons are currently included with Amazon Prime (as of November 2018). Prime subscribers can watch for no additional cost. (The SG-1 follow-up movies, The Ark of Truth and Continuum, are also currently streaming on Prime!)
Hulu: All 10 seasons of SG-1 are available to stream on Hulu (with a paid subscription). Hulu is currently $7.99 per month with ads, or $11.99 per month ad-free.
VRV: All 10 seasons are available on VRV, a streaming service mainly focused on anime programming. A $9.99 monthly subscription is required, though the site offers a 30-day free trial. Season 1 is currently available for free without logging in. VRV also has an app for major TV-connected devices.
Stargate Command: All 214 episodes of the show are on MGM’s service.
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.
VRV: All five seasons of SGA are also on VRV, with a $9.99 monthly subscription. New viewers can sign up for a 30-day free trial.
Stargate Command: All 100 episodes of the show are also on MGM’s service.
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
Hulu: Both seasons of SGU are also available on Hulu in their entirety.
VRV: Boths seasons of SGU are on VRV, with a $9.99 monthly subscription. New viewers can sign up for a 30-day free trial.
Stargate Command: All 40 episodes of the show are also on MGM’s service.
Video Quality: Stargate Universe is available in both HD and standard definition.
WATCHING THE STARGATE MOVIES
VRV: All three Stargate movies are on VRV, behind the subscription paywall.
Video Quality: The Stargate movies are available in both HD and standard definition.
WATCHING STARGATE ORIGINS
Stargate Command: The 10-part Web series Origins is on MGM’s service (which is where it originally premiered).
VRV: The ten, 10-minute webisodes are also available with your VRV subscription. (VRV is also the only place outside of Stargate Command where you can find “Dialing Home” and the Origins behind-the-scenes featurettes.)
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 from any of the major carriers.
Hoopla, however, 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.
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.
This guide is accurate as of November 2018. If you’ve spotted a change on one of these streaming services, please take a moment and let us know.
