It’s been a difficult year for the James Bond film franchise. No Time To Die, which is Daniel Craig’s last outing as 007, was pushed back numerous times due to the ongoing global pandemic. The film will only arrive in cinemas in April 2021.
But thanks to MGM Studios, there is some good news for fans of the famous superspy. The studio has removed the paywall from its YouTube channel, giving viewers access to 20 classic James Bond movies for free.
All you need is an internet connection and you can legally stream everything from Dr. No to Die Another Day, which marked the end of Pierce Brosnan’s tenure as the character. The only omissions are the Daniel Craig’s movies, which include Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace, Skyfall and Spectre.
However, there are a few small catches.
- The movies will include adverts. So while you don’t have to pay anything, ad breaks will be included.
- This offer is only available to viewers in the United States at present. If you live anywhere else, you’re out of luck for the moment.
- There is currently no information about how long this type of unprecedented access will last. It could be a week or six months, no one really knows.
If you loved seeing Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton and Pierce Brosnan as James Bond – these are all the movies you can stream free of charge, right now on MGM’s YouTube channel.
