How to Watch The Suicide Squad for free
Currently, HBO Max is the only place to watch The Suicide Squad online. Subscribers can stream the film on HBO Max at no extra cost to their existing plan, which is either priced at $9.99-per-month with ads or $14.99-per-month with no ads. After its premiere on Thursday, August 5 at 4 PM PT/7 PM ET, however, The Suicide Squad will only be available to stream on HBO Max for one month, or 31 days.
What that means is that DC Comics fans will presumably have until Sunday, September 5, to catch The Suicide Squad on HBO Max until it leaves the platform for the rest of its theatrical run. But if you’re not an existing subscriber, there are still options to stream The Suicide Squad for free up ahead.

Not signed up for HBO Max? You’ll get a free seven-day trial when you join through Hulu. HBO Max doesn’t have free trials on its own, but Hulu offers it as an add-on for $14.99 a month after the trial ends (if you don’t have a Hulu membership, be sure to sign up for a free trial).
Additionally, AT&T is offering free HBO Max with many of their unlimited wireless and internet plans, and the AT&T TV Choice package, which is $89.99 a month for more than 90 live and local channels, plus a year of free HBO Max.
And if you have HBO through your cable subscriptions, you’ll get automatic access to HBO Max at no additional charge (various cable companies may offer free HBO Max depending on your subscription).
HBO Max recently introduced an ad-supported membership for $9.99 a month (or $99 a year), however, the cheaper tier doesn’t allow you to stream new Warner Bros. movies for the first month after they hit theaters.
Still not convinced? Watch HBO and HBO Max Originals such as “Perry Mason,” “The Undoing,” “Mare of Easton,” “The Flight Attendant,” “Gossip Girl,” “Game of Thrones,” and “Insecure” on HBO Max for free before you decide on a subscription plan. With the $14.99 monthly package, you can stream movies and shows from your TV, computer, smartphone, gaming console, and other compatible devices. HBO Max also lets you add up to five profiles under one account.
The Suicide Squad is available to stream on HBO Max beginning on August 5, 2021, until it leaves the service on September 5, 2021.
How to watch The Suicide Squad online for free
Though HBO Max does not offer a free trial itself, you can access a trial for the streamer another way. Hulu has an option for subscribers to add HBO Max as an add on.
Though it is the same price to get HBO Max with Hulu than it would be on its own ($14.99 a month), Hulu offers a seven-day free trial of the service for people who sign up through Hulu.com. Hulu itself also offers a 30-day trial for its own service.
In order to watch The Suicide Squad or any other Warner Bros. movie, there is an extra step as those big movies do not show up on the Hulu version of HBO Max. Instead, subscribers have to head to the HBO Max website or app, click on “sign in” and then “sign in with a provider.” Then all you have to do is sign in with your Hulu details and you will be able to watch the full catalog of the streamer for free for a week.
Among the other Warner Bros. movies coming to HBO Max are the Timothee Chalamet-starring Dune, the fourth Matrix movie and the Sopranos prequel The Many Saints of Newark.
The Suicide Squad is available on HBO Max in the U.S. and Canada. In other countries, the movie is only available in theaters.
Wherever you watch it, wait until the end for a post-credit scene that sets-up a spin-off HBO project to the movie.
Is The Suicide Squad on Amazon Prime?
The Suicide Squad is not on Amazon Prime Video. There is some bad news. The Suicide Squad is not on Amazon Prime Video. Like other Warner Bros. movies this year, it’s heading to HBO Max as well as theaters. The movie is available on HBO Max with your subscription for 30 days starting Thursday, Aug. 5.
While the movie isn’t yet available on Amazon Prime Video, will it come to the streaming platform? That’s another negative. As a Warner Bros. movie, it’s going to head to HBO Now after its theatrical run. This is usually about six months after the theatrical release.
What about on Amazon Video? Eventually, the movie will head to Digital, which will mean it comes to Amazon Video. However, that’s not going to be for some time. We’re looking at three months for the DVD release date, which is around when the Digital release will also be.
