Is Die Hard on Netflix for Christmas 2019? Watch Bruce Willis online now!

Home Alone: 20th Century Fox

Netflix is home to a host of Christmas films from How the Grinch Stole Christmas to Miracle on 34th Street. What those films miss, however, is a distinct lack of machine guns, Bruce Willis, terrorists and feet woven with broken glass. Bring on Die Hard!

Next time you're out with a big group of friends or family, bring up the topic of whether Die Hard is a Christmas film or not and watch the chaos unfold.

It's a debate that has plagued movie lovers across the globe ever since the action film was first released in 1989. Now, humans can be split into two types of people: those who are outraged that Die Hard isn't on TV on Christmas Eve and those who are relieved.

So whether you're gathering the family around for a festive treat of explosions inside the Nakatomi Plaza or plan on streaming Die Hard on your own cus' no-one else finds it 'Christmassy' enough, here are your viewing options.

Is Die Hard on Netflix? Is it on the Sky Cinema Collection? And when will it be on TV?

Is Die Hard on Netflix for Christmas 2019?


If you want action films then Netflix offers everything you could wish for in rogue vigilante heroics. If you specifically want Bruce Willis taking on German terrorists in a vest with no shoes then you're going to have to look elsewhere.

Die Hard is not on Netflix for Christmas 2019 with only A Good Day to Die Hard available on the streaming platform. And, as we all know, only Die Hard 2 and Die Hard with a Vengeance are worth watching.

John McClane is on the Sky Cinema Collection and Now TV

Die Hard is already part of the Sky Cinema Collection, so welcome to the party pal!

The festive Sky selection also includes It’s a Wonderful Life, The Muppet Christmas Carol, The Polar Express, Trading Places, Sleepless in Seattle and all three versions of Miracle on 34th Street.

Alternatively, you can team up with Officer Al Powell and John McClane via Now TV. A Now TV Sky Cinema pass costs £11.99 per month.

Alternative options to watch Die Hard (1989) online

First up, you need to rule out Disney+, Apple TV+ and Hayu  - Die Hard is not available on any of them.

However, you can rent the movie for £3.49 from Amazon Prime Video and the Google Play Store.

Will Die Hard be on Freeview TV this year?

Unfortunately, Die Hard is unlikely to pop up on the Freeview TV schedule.

Apparently, it's just not as 'Christmassy' as the likes of Elf, Home Alone and How the Grinch Stole Christmas.

Last year, the action film wasn't picked up by the BBC, Channel 4 or ITV, and it looks like a similar story in 2019. HITC will update this article should that change.
