A new era for entertainment behemoth Disney began in November 2019. The highly anticipated streaming TV service Disney+ hit the ground running with a stunning catalogue of over 800 TV shows and movies. While the service isn’t perfect, it’s still great value for only $8.99/month or $89.99/year.

But what if you want to watch Disney+ for free?

Disney+ used to offer a seven-day free trial, but that’s no longer the case. As of 19 June, the platform retired its free trial offer, so the only way to stream Disney content is to sign up for a monthly or annual subscription. The trial might be back at a future date, along with other special promotions.

Until then, is it worth signing up for the service? The library has now grown to over 1,000 titles. Most of the content on Disney+ you would have already seen. Whether it’s Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic or Disney itself, this is a catalogue of some of the biggest blockbusters of all time.

In other words, some of the titles are well worth a rewatch, especially if you have children living under your roof. Plus, Disney+ is also streaming original, exclusive content you won’t find anywhere else. It’s led by the live-action Star Wars TV series The Mandalorian, along with movies, documentaries, shorts, Jeff Goldblum and more to discover.
