How to watch Pistol online: stream Danny Boyle’s punk rock biopic miniseries wherever you are

It’s the 1970s and the Sex Pistols are tearing Britain a new one in this six-part FX miniseries. Adapted by award-winning filmmaker Danny Boyle from Steve Jones’ fascinating 2016 autobiography, it’s a bracing account of the emergence of punk-rock and its anti-establishment attitude – just in time for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee! Below we explain how you can watch Pistol online from anywhere.

Trainspotting director Boyle promises that film's same crackling energy as he charts the Pistols' rise to notoriety: swearing obscenely on TV, inciting moral panic, and going on the offensive against sterile conformity. And although the band produced just one studio album, the punk provocateurs secured their place in music history with songs like “God Save the Queen” and “Anarchy in the UK”.

Anson Boon (Blackbird) is Johnny Rotten, the band’s sneering frontman determined to “kick this country awake”. Toby Wallace (Babyteeth) stars as founding member Steve Jones, drummer Paul Cook is played by Jacob Slater, and Louis Partridge is Sid, a punk icon and the band’s nihilistic center.

Meanwhile, other ‘70s legends to feature include fashion trailblazer Vivienne Westwood, Siouxsie Sioux, and Emma Appleton (The Witcher) in the role of Sid’s ill-fated girlfriend Nancy.

Ready for some terribly excellent anarchy? Then read our guide below now, which explains how to watch Pistol online and stream all six episodes from anywhere.
