There Isn’t a Disney+ Free Trial, But This Is the Next Best Thing

We love sharing free stuff with you. Unfortunately, Disney took its usual Disney+ free trial off the table this week. An interesting strategy so close to Black Friday, to be sure. Thankfully they have an offer that’s almost as good. Right now you can get one month of Disney+ for only $2. Again, it’s not free, but it’s the next best thing. This offer is part of “Disney+ Day,” a massive event on Friday, November 12, that will feature lots of new movies available for streaming, some entirely new original movies and shorts, and the launch of Disney+ in new countries. This offer is available to anyone not currently subscribed, meaning new customers and people who have previously canceled their subscriptions can grab a month of Disney+ for only $2.

If you grab this Disney+ promotion, you’ll be just in time for the new movies and shows. For Disney+ Day, Disney announced that Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings will come to streaming. The Marvel movie premiered in theaters at the beginning of September. Jungle Cruise, the adventure film starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Emily Blunt, will also become available to stream for all subscribers. Disney also announced half-dozen new short films and series, including a Frozen spinoff and a Simpsons special. There’s even going to be a new Home Alone movie!

Of course, you’ll get access to all of the usual streaming options as well, including some of the best movies and best TV series for binge-watching. You’ll have access to every season of The Simpsons, everything ever released with a Star Wars logo (besides the holiday special), the complete Marvel Cinematic Universe, and more!

If the newly announced movies and series have piqued your interest, or you’ve just been holding out on getting that subscription until the right deal came along, this is your chance. Sure, it’s not a free trial, but it’s the next best thing. You can get your first month of Disney+ for only $2. This applies to anyone who isn’t currently subscribed to Disney+. So even if you’ve had a subscription in the past but canceled, you can jump back on the wagon for only $2.

Can You Get a Free Disney Plus Account in 2022?

Disney Plus is one of the absolute best streaming services and well worth the money. So, if you're wondering if you can get a free Disney Plus account, read on while we tell you what you need to know.
Can You Get a Free Disney Plus Account?
Okay, so there isn't a free Disney Plus account option. While some services may offer a free ad-supported plan with limited features, Disney Plus offers just the one plan -- $8 per month or $80 per year for all the Disney Plus you can watch. It's tremendous value but if you don't want or can't afford to pay then you're going to miss out on a free Disney Plus account. There isn't even a Disney Plus free trial anymore as Disney stopped those in 2021 after a hugely successful launch period.

However, there are some alternatives if you really don't want to pay, or at least pay extra for Disney Plus. At times, some other companies you may interact with offer free ways to watch Disney Plus. For instance, in November 2021, Amazon was offering a free six-month subscription to Disney Plus if you signed up to its Music Unlimited service. While that meant Disney Plus wasn't entirely free, you could enjoy Disney Plus on top of an Amazon Music Unlimited subscription. Ideal if you're looking to expand your streaming horizons for less. That offer has now ended but there are other options out there if you look around.

What is Paramount Plus? The Ultimate Beginner’s Guide

Previously known as CBS All Access, Paramount Plus is steadily becoming a streaming service worth paying attention to. Newly relaunched in 2021, it offers some great movies and shows even if it's not as high-profile as some alternatives. If you need to know more about it, read on while we answer pretty much every question you could possibly have about Paramount's streaming service.
What is Paramount Plus?
Paramount Plus's origins begin under a different name. The streaming service owned and operated by Paramount Global was first called CBS All Access. It launched on October 28 2014 before being expanded and rebranded as Paramount Plus on March 4, 2021, following the 2019 re-merger of CBS and Viacom. Since then, the service has gradually expanded both in terms of content and in terms of its reach. Originally launched in the U.S., the service has expanded to international markets, starting with Latin America and the already existing Canadian service. Since then, Nordic countries have followed along with Australia.

Paramount Plus offers quite a lot of content and all of it is, of course, owned by Paramount. Since its relaunch, it has offered true crime series such as The Real Criminal Minds, as well as a revival of the BET series, The Game, a drama based on Albert S. Ruddy's experiences filming The Godfather called The Offer, and much more. As expected from most streaming services, content is varied to cater to the whole family while ensuring there's something for every mood too. The service includes content from MTV, VH1, Nickelodeon, Comedy Central, BET, and Smithsonian Channel, so there's generally something for everyone. In all, the catalog numbers more than 30,000 television series episodes and up to 1,000 film titles.
