Disney Plus may still be playing catch-up to Netflix and Amazon Prime Video, but with a library of content that includes The Mandalorian, as well as some of the biggest blockbuster movies, it's easy to see why this is becoming one of the most popular streaming services out there.
Sign-ups are available in the UK, US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and most major countries in Europe. Priced at £5.99/USD$6.99 for a monthly subscription, it’s quite a lot for your buck. However, if you’re not sure whether Disney Plus is right for you - or if you’re a bit strapped for cash - then there is a way to watch it for free.
Read on to find out all the methods to try out Disney Plus without spending a penny. If you’d like to know more news about the streaming service, then check out our Disney+ news roundup.
Sign up for O2 and get Disney+ free for 6 or 12 months
Searching for a brand new phone contract in the UK? O2 has partnered with Disney Plus to offer six months of the service for free with all new contracts, including upgrades. But that's not all - existing O2 customers who aren't upgrading can also add Disney+ as an extra on their current plan for £5.99 per month, with £2 a month being knocked off the bill.
This news gets even better - if you sign up for an unlimited data plan, then you get Disney+ free for a year.
At the moment there's no set date for when these deals will end, but we'll keep a close eye on this situation. Find out more on the O2 Disney Plus discount page.
Get 30 days of Disney+ with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate
Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers can pick up 30 days of Disney+ for free as a new membership perk. The offer is available on the console via the Perks Gallery. Keep in mind, it's only available to new Disney+ subscribers and you must claim by 31 January. The offer coincides with the launch of Microsoft's Xbox Series X and Series S.
Claim 6 months worth of Disney+ with Sonos
If you purchased an Arc, Beam or other qualifying speaker set from Sonos between 1 October - 31 October, 2020 you can redeem 6 months of Disney Plus for free until 1 December, 2020.
Get Disney Plus with Verizon broadband
As a preface, this option is not technically free (as you'll still have to pay for the internet), and it's also not really an option to anyone outside of the USA. However, if you’re an American who is in the market for a new broadband provider, then you can get one year's worth of Disney Plus - which is worth USD$69.99 for the annual subscription - added onto your internet subscription for free as part of a bundle.
This offer is available to new customers on the Fios or 5G home internet plans with Verizon. Even if you’re already subscribed to Disney Plus, Verizon have confirmed that users can freeze their subscriptions, claim 12 months free, and then resume their usual subscription after the year is up.
Plans start from as low as USD$39.99 per month, but certain options (like 5G) are only available in selected areas, so check on the Verizon website for full details.
Will there be Disney+ Black Friday 2020 deals?
While Disney+ launched in the UK on 24 March, last November the service received $10 off the annual price in the US for Cyber Monday. The UK might see a similar off this year, which would bring the price down to £49.99.
For $12.99, US customers can also bundle ESPN and Disney+ on their Hulu subscription, which saves 25% from buying each subscription separately.
