Here’s Where to Watch ‘Die Hard’ For Free—AKA, the Best Unofficial Christmas Movie

Every year, audiences around the world have the same debate over whether or not Die Hard can be considered a Christmas classic. Really, the decision is up to you—but first, you’ll need to find out where to watch Die Hard in time for the holidays.

Die Hard, which is based on the 1979 novel Nothing Lasts Forever by Roderick Thorp, first premiered in theaters in July 1988. The blockbuster stars Bruce Willis as New York City police detective John McClane, who must fight off terrorists who take employees at a corporate skyscraper hostage while he’s on a visit to Los Angeles. Despite its summertime debut, the film is set smack dab in the middle of the holiday season—most of the action takes place during what was supposed to be a holiday office party, and Christmas songs like “Winter Wonderland, “Let It Snow” and “Ode to Joy” abound.

Still, some fans of Die Hard don’t consider it to be a holiday movie due to all the bloodshed, whereas others simply can’t get enough of this unofficial Christmas classic. But it’s ultimately up to you to decide. For everything you need to know about where to watch Die Hard online—plus where to watch Die Hard 2 and Die Hard With a Vengeance—just keep on reading.

If you’re wondering where to watch Die Hard online for free, you actually have a few different options. This year, Die Hard will be airing on Bravo’s network—but don’t worry if you don’t have cable. Cord-cutters can still watch Die Hard online for free via the following free trial and streaming options below. Just be sure to cancel your subscription before your free trial is up to avoid any fees.

Hulu+ With Live TV is a great option to watch Die Hard online for free. Along with access to Hulu’s library of 80,000 movies and TV shows, the service also offers more than 75 live channels—including Bravo, where you can watch Die Hard for free with the streamer’s seven-day free trial.

Currently, Amazon Prime users can watch Die Hard online for free via IMDb TV, though we suggest you act on this option quickly as it’s unclear how long the offer stands. In order to watch Die Hard online for free through IMDb TV, you have to be an Amazon Prime Video subscriber. While Amazon Prime Video costs $8.99 per month for non-Prime members, Amazon Prime Video comes free with Amazon Prime.

Amazon Prime costs $12.99 per month or $119 per year, which saves subscribers about $36 from the monthly subscription.

Like Amazon Prime, Student Prime also comes with a free Amazon Prime Video subscription. But don’t worry if you’re not trying to drop any money—Amazon Prime Video’s free trial is always an option.

What’s great about Amazon Prime Video’s free trial is that it’s four times longer than most other streaming services. Compared to Paramount+ and Peacock, which offer just seven-day free trials, Amazon Prime Video’s free trial is 30 days. That’s three weeks more than competitors. The free trial also comes with the same benefits of Amazon Prime, such as free two-day shipping, Prime Music and more. If you’re a student, the free trial is even longer. Compared to the regular 30-day Prime free trial, Student Prime‘s free trial is six months, which is five months more than the regular free trial.

While Die Hard is available to stream to all Peacock Premium or Peacock Premium Plus users, anyone can watch Die Hard even if they aren’t subscribed to a paid plan this year. Peacock is making Die Hard free to stream with Peacock’s free plan.
