How to watch Sonic the Hedgehog 2 online in the UK

sonic the hedgehog 2 is due to be available for purchase and digital streaming in the UK from June 15, 2022 (although last minute changes do occasionally occur).

It will be available on Rakuten TV, Amazon’s Prime Video store, Apple’s iTunes and other streaming video stores. You can then use a streaming device to watch the movie on your TV.

As of this writing, the pre-order price on some of the digital stores is £13.99.

This is not a premium rental – instead, the film will be available as a digital purchase, which you buy and then own digitally.

At its initial price, it is similar to the cost of past premium rentals, such as no time to die and Dunes (which were £15.99), but there’s one major difference – a premium rental is only available to watch for 48 hours, while a digital purchase lets you own the film forever.

At a later date (usually a few weeks after the initial release), the film will also be available for digital rental at a lower cost.

More than two months after the film’s theatrical release (in the UK), sonic the hedgehog 2 the digital release is later than what we’ve grown accustomed to in recent months.

However, this is still earlier than films of the past, when it took several months before films were transferred from theaters to home entertainment.
