The Bikeriders Cruising Onto Streaming and Digital: How to Watch

How to watch the Austin Butler motorcycle drama at home.

By Josh Weiss

Start those engines! Jeff Nichols' The Bikeriders is now available to rent and/our purchase via PVOD digital services. Inspired by the non-fiction book of the same name written by photojournalist Danny Lyon, the critically-acclaimed film tracks the rise and fall of a Chicago motorcycle club throughout the 1960s and '70s.

The organization starts out innocently enough, serving as a homey refuge for outcasts living on the fringes of society. But as the United States experiences severe disillusionment in the wake of the Vietnam War and Watergate, the gang's easy-riding founders struggle keep up with a country they no longer understand. Much of the club's history is related to the audience through the Scorsese-esque narration of Kathy (Jodie Comer), the exasperated wife of stoic rider Benny (Austin Butler).
