Here are the best TV, movie and comedy streaming deals to help you enjoy a cheap night in!
I’ve hunted out ongoing offers, trials and any short-lived deals.
Core streaming service deals
Disney + deals
The streaming service from Disney launched on 24th March 2020 in the UK. It has all the old Disney movies as well as new series in the worlds of Star Wars and Marvel. It costs £7.99 a month or £79.99 a year. Find deals here.
NOW TV deals
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 which I update on this dedicated page.
There are three pricing options for Netflix: £6.99, £10.99 and £15.99. You can no longer get a full free trial. It’s harder to save with Netflix, but there are a few deals, which I’ve listed on this page.
Amazon Prime Video
Prime Video comes with a standard Amazon Prime membership (£8.99 a month or £95 a year from September 2022), but it can also be signed up to without all those extras for £5.99 a month.
Apple TV + deals
YouTube Premium deals
YouTube Premium: Family and student plans
If you pay for more than one account in your household a Family plan works out cheaper at £17.99 a month. Or if you can validate your student ID you can pay just £6.99.
YouTube Premium: One months free
The standard free trial for YouTube Premium is one month (it’s occasionally increased). You’ll get ad-free viewing, the ability to download and access to YouTube Music Premium (a bit like Spotify). You can only get this if you are a new user of YouTube Premium, YouTube Music or Google Play Music. At the end of the trial it’s £11.99 a month, so cancel if you don’t want to keep paying.
Mubi shows a selection of cult, indie and world cinema. It’s £9.99 a month. You also get a free weekly ticket to the cinema – but only at selected cinemas for a pre-chosen film. Sometimes there are deals like three months for £1.
Mubi: Three months for £1
For a limited time you can pay £1 and get three months of Mubi. If you continue the subscription after this it goes to full price.
Mubi: 30-day free trial
The standard Mubi free trial is just a week, but his offer gets you a month for free.
The streaming service from ITV and the BBC costs £5.99 a month. It’ll mainly have old programmes from these broadcasters though there is some original programming too, such as the new Spitting Image. In November 2022 it’ll merge with ITV Player.
Britbox: Six months free if you’re with EE
Anyone who has a pay monthly mobile or tablet SIM (so not PAYG) can claim six months of EE for free.

Starzplay is a film and TV streaming service with original content as well as a range of classics. You can watch it via the Starzplay website, or through services such as Prime Video, Apple TV, Rakuten and Roku.
Amazon often runs £1.99 offers for six months. I’ll share anything similar here when they’re available.
