Downloads, DVDs and streaming – here are the best TV and movie deals to help you enjoy a cheap night in!
I’ve hunted out ongoing offers, the best prices to buy DVDs and any short-lived deals.
Digital movie sales – low prices on HD and 4K films to own
Amazon, Chili, Google, Rakuten and ITunes are all running sales right now as part of Mega Movie Week (yep, me neither). It ends Sunday 28th January 2019.
The core titles and prices are pretty similar across the services, but there are some only on certain services. Some I’ve spotted include big movies such as Blade Runner 2049 in 4K or The Greatest Showman in HD for £2.99 at Amazon. There are brand new movies too, such as Crazy Rich Asians, Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again and BlackkKlansman for £2.99 on Rakuten. There are also plenty of older movies starting from £1.99, like LA Confidential.
Chili has similar titles at similar prices, but there’s a trick here to get them for even less. Via Groupon, you can buy a £10 gift card AND an Odeon cinema ticket for £5.99. Use the credit for these cut-price films and they’ll be even cheaper.
You can save more at iTunes too – check out Zeek for discounted gift cards.
*Cheap movie rental vouchers and offers*
Here’s my guide to the cheapest ways to rent movies, including how to get them by post. Below are any current deals I spot.
Amazon Instant Video:
Amazon often has new rentals for £1.99 if you’re with Prime. You’ve 30 days to start watching the film.
Keep an eye on the top banner of the Google Play store for special deals. Last year I managed to bag all the Harry Potter movies for £3.99 – to keep!
If you’ve got Three’s Wuntu app you can pick up a free rental practically every two weeks. If you don’t have the app, there’s a trick to nab it – whichever network you’re on.
*Google Play, Amazon and iTunes vouchers*
The clever app Zeek lets you buy reduced gift cards. Some are delivered by post, but Google Play, Amazon and iTunes codes are usually electronic and emailed straight away.
You don’t know what’s available and the discount on offer until you log in, but follow my link below and use the code CLEVERCASH to get a £5 discount on your first order (min spend £45)!
*NOW TV deals*
There are so many NOW TV offers and tricks I’ve written a separate page with the best offers.
*Free 30 days of classic, cult, arthouse and European cinema*
You can get a 30-day trial of each of these two new movie streaming services. Both have cult, classic and European cinema.
* Free 7-day Eurosport trial*
To watch you Eurosport without a subscription there’s a free seven-day trial of the online Eurosport Player. To get this trial you also need to be an Amazon Prime member – but that too comes with a free-trial lasting 30-days.
Follow the links below to sign up.
If you don’t want to sign up for Amazon, you can buy a month pass direct with Eurosport. This costs £6.99. Cancel before it ends if you don’t want to carry on for another month.
*Amazon, Now TV and Netflix streaming deals and free trials*
Good movie choices are pretty limited on, but Netflix in particular has some great TV. You can get a 30 day free trial for Netflix & Amazon Prime and a 14 day trial for NOW TV. I’ve compared the different services in my blogpost Nothing on TV? How to choose between Netflix, Amazon Prime and Now TV.
I love NOW TV, particularly if you want Sky Atlantic but don’t want Sky. There are often some great deals on its streaming packages.
*Get the cheapest DVDs and Blu-rays*
If you want it as soon as it comes out, you’ll probably pay a premium. I can’t guarantee these sites are the lowest prices for every release, but pretty much every time I look these have the best prices.
