Disney+ stops offering free trials

Many video streaming services offer some sort of free trial for new users, letting you try the service and check out its video catalog before plunking down cash for a membership. This week, though, one high-profile video streaming service gave its free trial the axe.

Disney+ no longer offers the free 7-day trial that had been available since the service’s launch late last year. The offer is no longer available on the Disney+ website, and Disney confirmed to CNET that it has stopped offering a free trial.

“The service was set at an attractive price-to-value proposition that we believe delivers a compelling entertainment offering on its own,” a Disney spokesperson said.

The end of the free trial is especially notable because it comes just 2 weeks before Disney+ releases a filmed version of Hamilton that stars the original Broadway cast.

There are other major streaming services that still offer free trials. For example, both Netflix and Hulu give new customers a free month before asking them to pay, and the new HBO Max has a 7-day free trial available. One thing that Disney+ does have going for it is that it’s a bit cheaper than many other major streaming services at $7.99 per month, so it is a little easier on your wallet if you’re interested in Disney+ and want to try it out for a month.
