YouTube has announced that it’s streaming the James Bond movies on its platform for all to see. Although the new James Bond flick No Time To Die might be awaiting a definite decision due to the coronavirus pandemic, but viewers will still have plenty of spy action to watch for now.
SlashFilm and io9 hinted that YouTube and MGM are now offering the first 19 James Bond movies through YouTube’s “Free to Watch” section in the United States. That’ll include everything starring the late Sean Connery, like Dr. No, and Goldfinger, through to Pierce Brosnan’s brief Bond revival with titles like Goldeneye.
Sony’s Daniel Craig-era movies are not available, though that’s not a surprise to anyone, you can watch the Casino Royale remake and Quantum of Solace ‘but not Skyfall or Spectre’ on Netflix.
But for now, it’s not clear what prompted the freebies or how long they’re going to last, though they’re a good tribute to Connery following his recent passing away. They’ll give viewers something extra to tide them over during a holiday season when a movie marathon at home is far more appealing than venturing to a closed theater.
