Pre-order movies on YouTube

On YouTube, you can pre-order select movies and have them delivered to your account as soon as they're available. Pre-ordering is available on via a web browser or in the YouTube mobile app. Note: This is not currently available on iOS devices.

Pre-ordering a movie

When an item is available for pre-order on YouTube, it displays a Pre-order button on its watch page. You won't be charged for pre-orders until the item is available for viewing.

  1. Open YouTube on your computer or the YouTube app.
  2. Search for the item you'd like to pre-order.
  3. Select Pre-order.
  4. Complete your order.

We'll send you an email when your pre-order is placed and when the item is available.

Cancel a pre-order

If you no longer wish to purchase a pre-ordered movie, and it hasn't been delivered yet, you may cancel the pre-order.

  1. Visit your Purchases page on your computer or on the YouTube app.
  2. Locate the pre-order you wish to cancel.
  3. Select Cancel pre-order.

You'll receive a cancellation email after canceling your order.

Changed release dates

If an item's release date changes, we'll send you an email. Your pre-order will still be completed, and the item will be available in your app on its new release date.

Why was my pre-order canceled?

A pre-order may be canceled if your payment is declined. You can pre-order again once you update your payment details on your Google account.
