Between Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, Disney+ and more, there are a lot of options out there for streaming service subscriptions. While some people are able to juggle them all, others are only signed for one or two at a time. Since we're following social distancing protocol and staying indoors much more than we're used to, however, having access to multiple streaming services helps pass the extra time. If you're not ready to commit to another subscription just yet, there are ways to access them for free for a limited-time.
For those who haven't yet made the plunge and signed up for the latest streaming platform (aka Disney+), you can access Disney+'s extensive catalogue for one week without officially signing up. Disney+ offers a free seven-day trial. With the free trial, you have full access to the Disney+ library and will be able to browse and watch all of the movies and shows on the service. The free trial is only available to new subscribers.
New subscribers can access the free trial by signing up on Disney+ via web browser, mobile device, Apple TV, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Samsung Smart TV, and Amazon Fire TV. Even when you sign up for the free trial, however, you will be required to enter your payment information. If you don't cancel at the end of the trial period, Disney+ will used that information to bill you for a subscription.
If you do decide to subscribe at the end of the trial period, Disney+ costs $6.99/month or $69.99/year for their streaming service. Once you're signed up—either through the free trial or a full subscription—you'll have access to numerous Disney properties, including Star Wars, Marvel, Disney Channel Original Movies, Pixar and more. If you time your free trial right, you'll be able to stream Disney's latest theatrical release Onward, as well as two new nature documentaries, which will be released on Disney+ early as a result of theater closures across the country.
