TV Answer Man, do you know when we can watch Oppenheimer at home on a streaming service or Blu-ray? I want to watch this movie but we live about 30 miles from the closest theater! — Clark, Solomons, Maryland.
Clark, Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer opened in theaters last July and it certainly hasn’t been a bomb. The film, which has generated rave reviews from critics and theatergoers, has made almost $1 billion worldwide. Oppenheimer stars Cillian Murphy as the brilliant but troubled scientist, J. Robert Oppenheimer, who led the U.S. mission to build the first atomic bomb. So, when will it be available on home video via a streaming service or Blu-ray? We have an answer.

Variety reports that Oppenheimer will be available as a digital PPV release on November 21 with a Blu-ray, DVD and 4K Blu-ray release on the same day. We still don’t have a release date for a streaming service, but it wouldn’t surprise me to see it on Peacock in late December. Variety says the Blu-ray/DVD release will be available via Amazon, Best Buy, Target and Wal-Mart while PPV services on Amazon’s Prime Video, Apple TV+, Vudu, Xfinity, YouTube, Microsoft and Verizon will carry it.

We have no information yet on pricing details for either the digital release or the disc release but we will update this article when we get more information.
