101-year-old Rose is summoned aboard a treasure hunter's research vessel after they recover a gloriously racy drawing of her from the wreckage of the Titanic, which has been lying at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean since 1912. 

The drawing, which is dated April 14, 1912, the day the ship collided with an iceberg, shows a teenage Rose wearing nothing but a necklace, the Heart of the Ocean, an invaluable piece of jewelry that would be worth hundreds of millions of dollars. 

Contained within these two artifacts is a love story so joyous and heartbreaking that it's now almost impossible to separate the historical from the fictional. 

Rose tells a tale that restores life to the decaying wreck and everybody who perished on it, replacing facts and figures with unforgettable images of two young lovers spinning together in a dance hall, goofing around on the bow and clinging on to a piece of debris as the ship capsizes behind them, with Bernard Hill's Captain Edward Smith going down with his doomed ocean liner.  

It's a genuine masterpiece from James Cameron, and here's how to watch Titanic online from anywhere.

How to watch Titanic online in the US

Starz (opens in new tab)

In the US, you can watch Titanic on Starz (opens in new tab), which is a premium cable and satellite channel that boasts first-run original television like American Gods and Outlander, alongside a big helping of Hollywood movies.

You can add the channel to your existing TV package, if you like - or if you're looking to cut the cord, you have a couple of alternative options for streaming Starz.

You can get a subscription directly from the network itself, but right now we actually recommend getting it through a third-party like  Amazon Prime Video (opens in new tab)

Amazon is worth considering, as you can get both a FREE 30-day Prime trial (opens in new tab) and then a FREE 7-day Starz trial on top of that. In both cases, you can cancel at any time, with Prime costing $12.99 a month and Starz an additional $8.99 a month - but only if you decide to keep them.

Other ways to watch Starz and stream Titanic 

Getting Starz through the network itself currently costs $5 a month for the first 6-months - but there's no indication what it costs thereafter or how long the commitment is. 

It's either an oversight or just plain shabby on the service's part, and hopefully they'll clarify things soon, so potential subscribers can sign up with confidence.

And remember, if you do pony up for a streaming service, you can watch it wherever you are - all you need to do it download a good VPN (opens in new tab) and follow our instructions above.
