Does Netflix Have Ready Player One?

Netflix recently released the long-awaited adaptation of Ernest Cline’s novel Ready Player One, but the streaming giant has yet to make a move to add it to their own catalogue. For fans of the book, this is a particularly frustrating turn of events as they are left wanting more after having watched the film.

The movie was one of the most anticipated releases of 2018, with fans eagerly awaiting its release and hoping that they would be able to stream it on Netflix. Unfortunately, the studio behind Ready Player One – Warner Bros. – was unable to secure a distribution deal with Netflix for the film.

The reason for this is unknown but many speculate that Warner Bros. wanted a larger share of the profits from any streaming deal. Netflix is known for paying much less than other studios for movies and television shows, so it’s possible that Warner Bros. chose not to go with them in order to get a better deal elsewhere.

This means that if you want to watch Ready Player One, you’ll have to find another way to do so. The movie is available on other streaming services such as Amazon Prime Video and Hulu, as well as on DVD and Blu-ray.


Unfortunately, Netflix does not currently have Ready Player One available for streaming. However, there are plenty of other options available for those who wish to watch the movie.
