How to watch Stranger Things Season 2 online right now

The wait is over – Stranger Things season 2 is finally here, and we’ve got all the details on how to watch the show in the UK right away.

Last year, Netflix debuted Stranger Things to the world, and TV fans have never truly recovered. The spooky retro thriller went down a storm, and the hype has shown no signs of letting up.

Naturally, Netflix was keen to commission a second series, and we’re glad to confirm that the full run of Stranger Things season two is now available to watch online.

Here’s what you need to know.

Stranger Things Season 2 Release Date: When is it out?

The official release date for Stranger Things season 2 is October 27, 2017. That’s great, as the show has debuted just in time for Halloween, and could be the perfect way to spend a creepy night in come October 31.

Even better, Netflix has fully embraced the age of modern streaming and has published the entire run of Stranger Things episodes. That means you can burn through the entire season at your own pace – which is likely to be very speedy for the most ardent fans.

How to watch Stranger Things season 2 online

The bad news is that you’ll need to fork out some cash to watch Stranger Things season two. The only legitimate way to watch the series is by paying for a Netflix subscription. Fortunately, Netflix is still a relatively cheap way to bag yourself oodles of streamable (and now downloadable, too) media.

Here are the sort of pricing options you’ll be looking at:

  • Basic – £5.99 per month
  • Standard – £7.99 per month
  • Premium – £9.99 per month

With the Basic tier, you won’t even be getting HD footage, and you can view content on just one screen at a time. Upgrade to Standard and you can view HD content across two screens simultaneously.

And if you’re a real film and TV buff, the best package is Premium, which nets you both HD and 4K video, as well as the option of watching content across four different screens simultaneously.
