Joker streaming hit headlines earlier this year when people attempted to watch the film illegally after release, but instead of sitting down with the blockbuster hit, they got a dose of malware. The film was one of several Oscar-nominated productions to come with a risk and prompted virus researchers to point people towards legitimate means of watching new blockbusters. Thankfully people can now get their hands on the film both for free and legally via the internet.
The former option comes with the chance to watch the film for free, but there is a time limit.
Non-Sky subscribers can sign up to NOW TV and get a seven day free trial for the Sky Cinema pass, which will allow them to stream Joker to their heart’s content.
After then, however, they will have to start paying the monthly rate of £11.99.
As the trial will require people to enter their card details beforehand, anyone not wanting to pay for the subscription will need to cancel pre-bill.
Anyone hankering for another dose of DC can also combine their subscription with an entertainment pass, which allows them to catch up with the DC TV universe.
The silver screen universe, which started out with Arrow in 2009, has become almost as dynamic as Marvel’s cinematic offering.
The show has combined with DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Supergirl, the Flash and now Batwoman (which was recently renewed for another season with a new lead actor).
Combining the passes will allow people to watch some of these landmark shows within the same seven-day time frame, but afterwards, it will set them back £20.98 a month.
Those aching for newer content from DC need not worry, as the comic publisher will soon unleash its “DC Fandome” event.
The virtual convention will take place on August 22 at 6pm in the UK via the DC website, and will see comic execs tease the content they weren’t able to show off at comic-con this year.
The roster allegedly includes upcoming gaming releases (such as the recently announced Rocksteady Suicide Squad game), film and tv production updates.
People will also see appearances from some comic greats such as Scott Snyder, Tom King and Neil Gaiman.
