Read the VN.

Or just watch UBW (series, not movie) > Fate/Zero. Can watch Kaleid after those if you're into loli fanservice.

Since you apparently have no intention of playing the source material and just want to watch the anime... go in order of release (You'll also figure out how to watch the spin-offs that have nothing to do with the main series that way). F/Stay Night (for that Saber route) > F/Zero > F/UBW TV version > F/Heaven's feel.

Don't let the hardcore VN fans get to you. The animes were aired like that for a reason (don't watch the UBW movie).
If you see that my post is exactly 1 month old (or more) from when it was posted... Don't waste your time, especially when you want to reply with something petty & insignificant. Assume that I've moved on (because I have).

Just watch Fate/Zero, the rest is average at best. You'll understand most of it, so don't worry to much about that.

This is hilarious , no helpful answers

I think airing is good:
Fate/stay night
Fate/Zero
Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works (not the movie)
Carnival Phantasm (this is out of airing order but not related to others, it's a parody/comedy)

you could skip Fate/stay night and think later if you'd like to see it, I think it's the worst of these. Not much lost if you only watch onr without the others. Connected but no knowledge needed of others.

If you like Fate/Zero then you probably don't like Fate/Kaleid. It's more like a cute girl anime.

Chronological order:
Fate/Stay Night
Fate/Zero
Fate/Zero - Season 2
Fate/Unlimited Blade Works (not the movie)
Fate/Unlimited Blade Works - Season - 2.

However, I'd like to recommend as follows;

Fate/Zero - Season 1
Fate/Zero - Season 2
Fate/Stay Night - Optional - May/May not watch it. However, do not worry, even if you choose to watch Fate/Stay Night, you won't be spoiled. As Fate/Unlimited Blade Works has a different and better plot than Fate/Stay Night.
Fate/Unlimited Blade Works (not the movie) - It is a remake of Fate/Stay Nights with a better animation and a better plot.
Fate/Unlimited Blade Works - Season 2

And, you can watch the spin-offs any way you like. They are not related to each other.

I, personally, would watch Zero first, then Stay Night... and stop there.

Didn't really like UBW. Stay Night is worth it for the atmosphere alone, the soundtrack is second to none. A solid 7, overall.
1 hour = 10,000 yen.
2 hours = 20,000 yen.
3 hours = 3 loaves of French bread.
4 hours = 4 loaves of French bread.

It's from the same studio and author, and also same universe (Same multiverse, actually). It's not related, but the supernatural concepts and organizations mentioned all exist in Fate. So just watch it if you want more insight of the universe.

Same universe I think, but story is not related, so you can watch anytime if you are interested.

Frankly I found the KnK movies to be incredibly boring, but they have good animation, good music and interesting characters. It is the story and dialogue that are terrible.

I have to agree... They were structurally good and are deserving of their rating but they are quite low tone

If you have no intention of reading the VN, watch:

Fate/Zero -> Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works -> Fate/Stay Night: Heaven's Feel (3 movies, one is out, other 2 are upcoming) -> Fate/Stay Night (Skippable according to everyone but it's the only adaptation of the Fate route) -> Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya (the best)

The rest (Apocrypha, Prototype, etc.) are pretty stand alone, so you can watch them whenever you want.

I see , something similar to the Dc/Marvel Multiverse , after finishing The Fate Saga I'll probably watch all the KNK movies, thanks for the info man :)

Fate/Stay Night (2006)
Fate/Zero season 1+2
Fate/UBW season 1+2
(Whatever spin-offs while waiting for Heavens Feel)

While I agree with the majority about Stay Night (2006) being bad, I do think it is crucial for setting up the story and setting of the Fate series. And seeing how ufotable adapted Zero and UBW, it would be best to watch Zero second.

If you have acces to the visual novel, just play that and you'll figure out the watching order by yourself.

I feel like it should be in the general AD section because I doubt someone just getting into the Fate series is going to check one of the anime-specific subforums first, especially since there are multiple different Fate series discussions.

Read the visual novel, there is no good replacement for it.

If not, here's how you watch the anime:
If you can wait for the second HF movie to come out then:

UBW (both seasons) -> HF movies (1,2) -> Fate/Zero (both seasons) -> wait for HF movie 3

If you can't wait for the second HF movie, then pick one of the following orders (both of them spoil some things for HF movies, so I don't recommend them):

1) UBW (both seasons) -> Fate/Zero (both seasons) -> HF movies (1,2,3)

or

2) Fate/Zero (both seasons) -> UBW (both seasons) -> HF movies (1,2,3)

Important: if you're going to watch Fate/Zero before UBW, please do not expect UBW to act as a sequel to Fate/Zero or have a similar writing style, they were written by different authors and have a different focus and tone to them, and on top of that UBW is only 1/3 of the parts that make up Fate/stay night.

Fate/Zero was meant to be watched after finishing all 3 routes of the Fate/stay night visual novel, but we currently lack a good anime for the Fate route(first route) and the second HF movie hasn't come out yet.

Fate/Apocrypha can be watched separately, but you will not understand some things if you start with it, so watch it after UBW at least, and if possible after all 3 HF movies.

FOR THOSE LIKE ME WHO DO NOT WANT TO READ THE VISUAL NOVEL (VN) AND ARE COMPLETELY LOST

Thanks to Shayon, I took the time to read the post : https://www.reddit.com/r/anime/wiki/seriesfaq-fate

In summary : it is a story with 3 different routes (like timeline) : Fate/stay night, Fate/UBW and HF
Fate/Zero is a prequel of all the routes

According to the very comprehensive post on reddit (very good job by the way):

Watching Fate/stay night (2006) will spoil Fate/UBW and HF
Watching Fate/Zero will spoil Fate/stay night and HF

CONCLUSION IF YOU WANT TO AVOID ANY SPOILERS WATCH :
1.Fate/UBW
2.HF (the movies, 1 is out at the moment, which implies waiting for the other)
3.Fate/stay night (it seems many viewers are saying it is rather lackluster and can be skipped).
4. Fate/Zero

So after reading the post... I decided to watch... none ;-) and wait for all HF movies to be out there before starting. There many good animes around so waiting should not be a big issue!
