How to stream other Bill & Ted films
If you need a refresh of the past few films, then we’ve got you covered dudes.
Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure is actually being re-released in UK cinemas at the moment (tickets are available from Odeon), so trying to rent it online is quite difficult.
The best way to watch the first film is to either purchase it on DVD/Blu-Ray via the likes of Amazon or HMV, or alternatively you can use a VPN to stream it through the US streaming service, Starz.
VPNs (otherwise known as Virtual Private Networks) reroute your IP address, so you can browse the internet as if you’re in another country. To sign up for an account with Starz, connect to a US server, head on over to the website, create an account and use PayPal as your form of payment. Note that you shouldn’t need to pay anything, as the site offers a seven-day free trial. The direct link to watch Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure on Starz is here.
You can find more detailed instructions in our guide to watching Starz from the UK. US folks can also watch the first film here (without the need for a VPN), or purchase it directly from Amazon US.
As for Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey, this can be rented from Amazon UK via a free trial of the MGM channel – you’ll just need a Prime Video account for this. In the US, you can watch it on Amazon US. Netflix and Now TV sadly don’t offer either of these films for streaming at the time of writing.
