Where to watch Sleepless in Seattle

Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks in Sleepless in Seattle
TriStar Pictures

Fans don’t really need a reason to revisit Sleepless in Seattle beyond the fact that it’s one of the best romantic comedies ever made. The film also has its fair share of drama, as Sam Baldwin (Tom Hanks) and his son, Jonah (Ross Malinger), mourn for their wife and mother, respectively. Because Jonah wants his dad to be happy, he calls into a nationally syndicated radio show to share his story, which captures the attention and the imagination of Annie Reed (Meg Ryan). Annie is very intrigued by Sam’s plight regardless of the fact that she’s already engaged to Walter Jackson (Bill Pullman).

Thanks largely to this film, Hanks and Ryan are considered rom-com royalty. The irony is that they share very little screen time together. This movie shouldn’t work as well as it does, but few romantic comedies have matched its success. It’s just a classic, and we’re here to tell you where you can stream Sleepless in Seattle.

Last year, it seemed like Sleepless in Seattle was streaming everywhere. However, for the 2023 holiday season, Sleepless Seattle only streams on a single platform: AMC+. That is the official streaming service of the AMC cable network, which also has Sleepless in Seattle available to stream on-demand for cable TV subscribers.

If you’re not an AMC+ or cable subscriber, the only other way to stream the film for now is to rent or buy it on digital outlets like YouTube and Prime Video.

Is it worth it?

Well, sure. The movie’s popularity is justified; it’s a legitimate charmer, with almost zero of the usual saccharine that usually accompanies movies in this genre. That’s thanks to writer/director Nora Ephron, who hadn’t yet compromised her talents with hokum like You’ve Got Mail (which reunited Hanks and Ryan in a woeful 1998 rom-com) and the film adaptation of Bewitched. Her clever screenplay, which was nominated for an Oscar that year, balances wit and whimsy with aplomb.

Also, look at that cast! You have not only Hanks and Ryan in their primes, but also Rosie O’Donnell, Rob Reiner, Bill Pullman, David Hyde Pierce, Gaby Hoffman, Rita Wilson, Victor Garber, Frances Conroy, and many more. There’s also a great soundtrack featuring the likes of Louis Armstrong, Carly Simon, and other greats.

Sleepless in Seattle has a score of 75% on the Tomatometer and a critics score of 72%.

The trajectory of at least one franchise will change on Sunday at the 2024 NBA Draft Lottery. The lottery determines the first 14 picks in the 2024 NBA Draft. Last year, the San Antonio Spurs won the draft lottery and used the No. 1 pick on French phenom Victor Wembanyama. There are no generational players like Wembanyama in this year's draft. However, securing the No. 1 selection is still a priority for every team in the lottery.

The 14 teams that missed the 2024 NBA playoffs participate in the draft lottery. Each team is assigned oddsfor winning the No. 1 pick. The two teams with the best odds for the No. 1 pick are the Detroit Pistons (14%) and Washington Wizards (14%). The Charlotte Hornets (13.3%), Portland Trail Blazers (13.2%), and San Antonio Spurs (10.5%) round out the top five.
