Will Blue Beetle Movie be on Amazon Prime?
DCEU’s ‘Blue Beetle’ will not be accessible on Amazon Prime for premium subscribers in the USA anytime soon, as it is an official Warner Bros Pictures production. Warner Bros Pictures has a specific streaming policy in place, wherein all of their film productions, including ‘Blue Beetle’, will have exclusive streaming on HBO Max within the USA. In the entertainment industry’s terms, there is no existing domestic streaming agreement between Warner Bros Pictures and Amazon Prime about ‘Blue Beetle’, which applies to Pay One or Pay Two. In essence, Amazon Prime does not possess the right to include ‘Blue Beetle’ in their streaming library as part of their subscription offering.
Instead of official streaming, ‘Blue Beetle’ is now available on Amazon Prime for rent and purchase versions at prices ranging from $19.99-$24.99 within two months of its theatrical release, and it becomes the sole option to watch it on Amazon Prime. Overall, this is impressive news for rental users of Amazon Prime; however, there is nothing for subscribers of Amazon Prime. However, it has become commonplace for premium users, as fresh or highly recommended content is regularly offered on the platform for an additional charge.
