When Will Imaginary Release On Streaming?

Lionsgate has not confirmed when Imaginary‘s streaming release date is, but the expectation is that it will be a long wait. The studio typically waits six months after a film’s theatrical release to move it to a streaming service. In this case, that would mean Imaginary could release on streaming in August 2024. The movie is expected to stream on Peacock once the time comes due to Lionsgate’s deal with NBCUniversal, which gives Peacock all Lionsgate movies during the Pay 2 window.

When Will Imaginary Release On Digital?

Those wanting to watch Imaginary at home might not have to wait quite as long, though. Lionsgate’s trend with several notable recent movies was to make them available on all major PVOD services after only three weeks. This would mean that audiences could buy or rent Imaginary on digital by late March or early April 2024 if the same patterns hold. The only reason it could take longer is if Imaginary proves to be a strong performer at the box office.
