Film & TV streaming service deals and trials

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.

If you want to rent a film or make a digital purchase then check out this separate offers page.

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.

Netflix deals

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 deals

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.

  1. Your Prime Video link for £5.99 goes to a Prime Video page that asks for £7.99 a month.

    1. They’ll try to get you to sign up for the full Prime, but you need to select the cheaper option while signing up

      1. I need to join Prime Video today to watch tennis, but I’ve looked everywhere and I can’t find the £5.99 video-only rate anywhere. Looks like I’ll have to pay full price.

        By the way, I’m not receiving any notifications of new posts by email so I never saw your response and I struggled to find this thread again. And yes, I have checked Spam.

        1. Update: got there eventually but I couldn’t tell you how. Then suffered from a weird payment glitch which resolved itself almost immediately

          Maybe I’m not getting emails because I refused to sign up with WordPress?

  2. Thanks for the MUBI deal. I wouldn’t have known if not for your email. I bought the three months for £1 offer and used a different email address from when I was previously a member, just in case.

  3. Hi there, looks like the Mubi £1 offer has expired or is the link wrong? Cheers

    1. Ah, my fault – for some reason the link change didn’t work. Should be fine now

  4. Hi
    The one year Mubi hack doesn’t work anymore , once you cancel Scribd your subscription to Mubi gets cancelled a few weeks later.

    1. Thanks Si!

  5. britbox is now only 7day free trial not 30

  6. Cashback for Disney+ on Quidco and Topcashback does not seem to be available any more.

    1. Hi Dorit, yes sadly it seemed to end about 4pm. I put a little update note on there earlier. Fingers crossed it comes back!

      1. Hi,
        re Disney+ : there is another option if you are a pickmypostcode member. If you sign up through them you get £20 added to your bonus. Obviously you will only get this if you win, but better than nothing (and if you were so lucky and were to win on there twice you get it twice 🙂
