List of Best Places to Watch Your Name Online
Where to Watch Kimi No Na Wa (Your Name) Online
1. Amazon Prime
Amazon Prime is likely the cheapest place to watch Kimi No Na Wa (as of the writing of this article).
Prices will vary per country, as will availability of the film However, on Amazon.com Your Name is only $3.99 to rent and $4.99 to buy. It is important to note that you do NOT need a Prime Video membership to rent or buy this film. However, Amazon has very strict restrictions in terms of using the correct website. Living in Japan, I was not able to rent the film on Amazon.com because my credit card had a Canadian address.

2. Netflix (in certain countries)
You can now also watch the film online on Netflix in certain countries! To be honest, I don’t have time to test them all but I have confirmed that you can watch Your Name online via Netflix UK.
Are you out of luck if you don’t live in the UK?
No! Not at all. I’m based in Japan and I can still watch the film on Netflix. But this method requires using a VPN to fake a United Kingdom IP address. There are so many VPNs out there that use different protocols and methods of masking your IP address, but the one I use is NordVPN and I can vouch for it in terms of watching anime on different Netflix country libraries.
How to Watch Your Name on Netflix via VPN
This method works on both desktop PCs and mobile phones or tablets.
In the settings, choose the UK as your location.Fire up the VPN and wait for it to do its magicOnce you’re connected, navigate to Netflix (browser or app)Search “Your Name” in the Netflix search bar and you should see the anime pop up.
Enjoy! Please note that if your Netflix library doesn’t update to reflect the country you selected in your VPN, you may have to clear the Netflix cache first and try again.
To to do this on mobile, go to settings -> apps -> Netflix -> clear cache. To do this on PC, you have to clear the cache in your web browser.
I’ve had no trouble using this method and I still use NordVPN to watch anime from various Netflix country libraries daily.
One place I was very surprised and very pleased to find the film was on the PlayStation store. Again, the availability of the film depends on your location.
However, if it is available, you can watch Kimi No Na Wa straight through your PlayStation 4 or (if you have the app) you can download the film to your Android or iOS devices after purchase. Both the original Japanese version and English versions are available on the PlayStation store.
