The Arrowverse crossover has now aired, but US and UK viewers can still watch all episodes of Crisis on Infinite Earths.
It was one of the most popular TV crossovers in television history, as it combined the might of five DC shows across The CW, as well as one of the most heartbreaking storylines from the comics.
It’s been around for a while, but watching every episode in order may be unclear. This isn’t a standalone show; you have to jump between various shows in order to watch all five episodes. It was even more confusing in the UK, as only select episodes are available.
Here is how to watch Crisis through a VPN. We also have similar articles on watching MCU movies and films in order and can on TV. You can also find out here how to watch the season 10 finale of The Walking Dead.
Watch Crisis on Infinite Earths in order
The Arrowverse series has five episodes to watch. Here’s what to watch:
- Chapter 1 (Supergirl), Season 5, Episode 9
- In Chapter 3 (The Flash), Season 6, Episode 9
- Chapter 4 (Arrow), Season 8, Episode 8
- In Chapter 5 (Legends of Tomorrow), (prelude to Season 5)
What do I need to get caught up on?
If you haven’t seen all the Arrowverse shows in their entirety (we can’t blame you, it’s a lot). Then here is the key episodes you should watch before you start watching Crisis on Infinite Earths.
Elseworlds is a crossover event that is worth catching up on, as it introduces plot points and characters. That are revisited in Crisis, as well as some character interactions and existing relationship dynamics.
While you can skip the latest seasons of Supergirl, Batwoman and Legends Of Tomorrow, it’s worth watching the latest episodes of Arrow and The Flash, as well as the series 7 finale of Arrow.
Also, Black Lightning’s episode of Earth Crisis season 3, episode 9 is directly after Part Three of Crisis on Infinite Earths. So you may want to add that to your watch list after watching Part 2. You can catch up on that episode of Black Lightning on Netflix.
Where can I watch all the episodes?
Currently, one episode of Crisis on Infinite Earths is available through Now’s Entertainment Membership ( $9.99 per month )and on Amazon Prime. Amazon Prime subscribers should be able to find it in their library, and Now television owners can access the episode at the link below:
All the other episodes are missing from that list. For starters, E4 owns Batwoman rights and was airing the episodes on a weekly basis. Part 2 was available on All 4, but unfortunately, this episode has now expired.
Supergirl, The Flash, and Legends of Tomorrow have sadly been taken off Now, along with the Crisis episode of Legends of Tomorrow. However, there is still a workaround for watching them.
Currently, four episodes of the Crisis saga are available on Netflix US. Although it is not free to sign up for Netflix, if you already have a UK account, you can access Netflix US pretty easily by downloading a VPN.
A VPN enables the user to appear to be browsing from another country by assigning them a brand new IP address.
We recommend using ExpressVPN or NordVPN for the best range of services, performance, and price. You can also check out our full list of the best VPNs for streaming. We also have a list of free VPNs but their limited range of servers makes streaming quite challenging.
If you’d like more detailed instructions, you can find them in our guide to watching Netflix US in the UK. If you live in the US, you can watch Netflix just as you normally would.
The following links will take you to the episodes of Crisis on Amazon:
Batwoman’s not available on Netflix US. However, it is available on HBO Max, which costs $14.99 per month – though some users can get it free. A subscription to HBO Max abroad is a little more complicated: read our complete guide to HBO Max in the UK for more info.
Also, having an account gives you access to new Warner movie releases for 2021, like Mortal Kombat.

If the above method isn’t suitable, both UK and US viewers can purchase individual episodes of Crisis on Infinite Earths via Amazon UK and Amazon US.
On the other hand, you can go old school and buy all the episodes on the official Crisis on Infinite Earths DVD, which also has some extra featurettes on Amazon UK and HMV.
