How to download and watch Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets

To get a legal download of the new Sci-Fi movie Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, we recommend an iTunes download…there are many benefits to this including the “legal download” part and the flexibility of using different iTunes accounts.

If you have checked your iTunes store for the country you are in and its not available yet, then using our steps below you can set up an Apple ID for a different country and download the movie right away! It’s really easy to use multiple iTunes accounts and switch between stores and all downloads are stored in the same iTunes library.

Where is the movie available?

We know for sure that it is available to download right now in the US store. It is not available in the UK store until 25th November.

So if you are in the UK, or any other country where it is not available through following the steps below you can set up your own US iTunes account to make downloads immediately.

The following steps to set up the US account will need to be completed on an iPad or iPhone:

  • From the home screen on the iPhone or iPad select “App store”.
  • Scroll to the bottom of the page and sign out of an existing iTunes account.
  • Choose any “FREE” App and select “Get”.
  • In the pop up box choose “Create Apple ID”.
  • Follow the set up process to add an email address (this will be the new Apple ID) and password and change the country using the drop down box to “United States”.
  • Click agree to terms and conditions and select Next.
  • Select “None” under billing details and fill in name, address, phone number (A Google search can help with this) and head to the next page.
  • Apple will send a verification code to the email address provided.
  • Check for the email and confirm the code where requested on the iPad or iPhone.

Adding credit to the account:

The movie is currently $12.99 for an SD download or $19.99USD for an HD download, so depending on which version you want there will need to be that much credit in the account to buy the movie download – from outside the US no credit/debit cards will be able to be linked to the account so the account can be credited using iTunes gift card codes.

Checkout our US iTunes gift card codes

Using the link above to our US iTunes codes you can select the amount of credit required and receive your code by email. Once you have received the code redeem it into your new US account and the balance will update.

The account can be used to download any other movie, App, Tv season or music as long as there is enough credit in the account. Though credit can be added to the account at any point. The credit also does not have to have to be used/spent in one go , the balance will just decrease as it is spent and as mentioned can be topped up through adding more iTunes code credit at any time.

If you now have multiple iTunes accounts you can sign in and out of iTunes using the different log in details to be transferred to the relevant iTunes store country for the log in. All your downloads will be stored in the same iTunes library.
