Ethan Hawke is back. Even though he might not play the role of a very nice character, he is still doing a fantastic job as an evil guy in The Black Phone. Have you heard about the movie? Would you like to stream The Black Phone online? Were you unable to watch it at the cinema? In this article, I will show you how and where you can watch The Black Phone online.
Do you have subscriptions to popular streaming services such as Disney+, Netflix, and/or HBO Max? Is The Black Phone available on any of those services? Is it available on Amazon Prime? At the time of writing, no is the answer to all those questions. It might be that The Black Phone will come to Netflix in the future, but presently, the movie isn’t on any of the mentioned streaming services. Where you can watch The Black Phone online then?
Take a look at the image above. Do you see any information that gives you important information? There are some words there that give you the answer. But, what does it mean that The Black Phone is “streaming only on Peacock?“
PeacockTV is the streaming service of NBC Universal in the United States. Here you can watch lots of PeacockTV original productions, in addition to movies such as The Black Phone, Premier League football, and much more. Maybe you haven’t heard about any of the original series from PeacockTV, but if you get a subscription, make sure to check out their series The Lost Symbol based on the book written by Dan Brown.
I should also mention that you can stream the extended version of Jurassic World Dominion on PeacockTV at the moment!
How can I watch The Black Phone on PeacockTV outside the USA?
PeacockTV is a streaming service for the United States. As a result, people residing outside the USA are unable to access the streaming service. What can you do about that if your goal is to watch The Black Phone and other PeacockTV content at your current location?
It is easy to fix this problem, and here I will show it to you step by step. You can find even more detailed instructions on how to watch PeacockTV abroad in this article.
Step 1 – Get an American IP address.
The first thing you need is an American IP address. Even though we live in a globalized world, there are still borders online, and if you have an IP address outside the USA, you will not be allowed to visit the PeacockTV website.
The easiest and quickest way to get an American IP address is by using the VPN services of ExpressVPN or Surfshark. You can visit the websites of both providers by clicking the buttons below. Surfshark is a bit cheaper than ExpressVPN, so if you want to spend “as little as possible”, you should probably choose their service. Both services have a 30-day full refund policy, meaning that you can cancel your subscription and get your money in return.
Surfshark is an awesome VPN provider with servers in more than 60 countries. They have great applications for Windows, macOS, iOS, Android, FireTV, Linux, and more platforms. One subscription can be used on an unlimited number of devices at the same time.
ExpressVPN is based in the British Virgin Islands. They have servers in nearly 100 countries, and it is often referred to as the fastest VPN on the market. They have great customer service and easy-to-use applications for Windows, macOS, Android, iOS, FireTV, Android TV, Linux, and more. You can use the same subscription on five devices simultaneously.
Purchase a subscription to one of the recommended VPN providers, download their application, and connect to a server in the United States. As you complete those steps you will have an American IP address, and you will now be able to access the PeacockTV website.
Step 2 – Register a new user at the PeacockTV website. Purchase a Premium package.
The next step is to register a new user at the PeacockTV website. It is completely free to register a new user and you will be surprised to discover how much awesome content is available for free on the streaming platform. But, if you want to watch The Black Phone, you need a Premium package. The price of the Premium package is $5 per month.
As you create a new user at the PeacockTV website, do not forget to use an American ZIP code in the registration process. If you want to get an actual address in the USA (postal address), you can get one completely free at www.shipito.com. This will help you as you register for PeacockTV and other American streaming services in the future.
Shipito is in reality a service that you can use to forward packages from the USA to your current location (outside the USA). This is great as you want to ship products from an online store to your country that the store itself does not ship to locations outside the United States. As a result, they will provide you with an address in the USA (at their warehouse). This is completely free. The way they actually earn money is if you se their services to forward packages.
So far, so good. If you are lucky, you will be able to pay for the PeacockTV Premium package with your PayPal account or your payment card. But, it is very likely that you will have some trouble actually paying for PeacockTV Premium. How come?
PeacockTV and most other American streaming services require you to pay with a payment card issued in the United States. If you pay with a payment card or PayPal account issued elsewhere, your payment will be declined and you will remain with your free PeacockTV membership. What can you do about this?
Step 3 – Get a virtual payment card issued in the USA (might not be needed for everyone).
In order to pay for PeacockTV Premium, you need to use the services of USUnlocked. This is a service that will provide you with a virtual payment card issued in the USA. Not only will this help you pay for PeacockTV, but you can also use it to pay for Amazon Instant Videos, Paramount+, Hulu, HBO Max, Disney+, and lots of other services in the USA requiring a payment card issued in the USA.
- Visit the USUnlocked website and register an account.
- Deposit funds to your newly created account.
- As your deposit arrives, use a virtual payment card to pay for PeacockTV Premium.
You are now ready to pay for PeacockTV Premium. The Black Phone, Jurassic World: Dominion, Premier League football, The Lost Symbol, and lots of other goodies are waiting for you immediately.
Do you feel as if this is a lot of steps in order to watch Ethan Hawke, Mason Thames, and Madeleine McGraw in The Black Phone online? It might be, but do not forget that it will open a world of opportunities for you. How come? You can use the same VPN services to unblock streaming services such as Paramount+, Hulu, BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, Netflix, Disney+, RaiTV, HBO Max, and lots of other streaming services and TV networks. You can also use your USUnlocked funds to pay for services requiring a payment card issued in the USA. Once again, this is a great investment giving you much more than just The Black Phone.
Is The Black Phone worth watching?
I am not a big fan of horror movies, but I still went to watch The Black Phone in the cinema. Even though it might be scary, this isn’t much of a horror movie. It is actually quite harmless, and you will not sit on the edge of your chair while watching it. That doesn’t make it a bad movie, it just means that it isn’t very scary,
The story in itself is cool, and I enjoyed watching The Black Phone, even though it didn’t become a new favorite of mine. In other words, I have mixed feelings about the movie, but I do not regret watching it at all.
Now it is time for you to watch The Black Phone online. I am curious to hear what your thoughts are about the movie. Did you like it? Would you watch it a second time as well? I would love to hear your thoughts.
