How to get the Disney+ free trial: a step-by-step guide
Lover of all things Disney? Then you may want to sign up to Disney Plus. Here's your guide.
A new era for entertainment behemoth Disney began in November 2019. The highly anticipated streaming TV service Disney Plus hit the ground running with a stunning catalogue of over 800 TV shows and movies. While the service isn’t perfect, it was still great value for only €6.99/month or €69.99/year.
Those prices are rose to €8.99/month and €89.90/year with the launch of a adult content channel, Star, on 23 February 2021. Given the massive influx of new content, the price increase made sense – you can now binge more adult-oriented shows and movies, including titles like Grey’s Anatomy, What We Do in the Shadows and American Horror Story.
But what if you want to watch Disney Plus for free?
Disney Plus used to offer a 7-day free trial, but that’s no longer the case. As of 19 June 2020, 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.
So, is it worth signing up for the service? The library has now grown to over 1,700 titles. Most of the content on Disney Plus 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.
Many of the titles are well worth a rewatch, especially if you have children living under your roof, or you may find some classics you are yet to watch. Plus, Disney Plus 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 and Marvel offerings WandaVision, Falcon and the Winter Soldier along with movies, documentaries, shorts and more to discover.
How to sign up for Disney Plus
Signing up for a Disney Plus subscription is a simple process. Just follow these steps:
- Head over to the Disney Plus sign-up page.
- You’ll see a big blue button that you can press to start your Disney Plus subscription. This is where you will need to choose a plan. To be safe, choose €8.99/month – that way, you have an entire month to explore the library and figure out if it makes for a solid long-term investment. You can change to the annual plan in the future if you want to keep the service on.
- MARK THE DATE WHEN THE FIRST MONTH ENDS IN YOUR CALENDAR. That way, you will remember to cancel before being billed for another month if you’re not planning to hold on to your subscription for longer.
- On the next page, you need to enter your email address.
- You must then enter a strong password.
- You will need to enter your credit card details to proceed.
- Enjoy as much content as you can that first month to make the most of your money.
- If you’re not a fan of the service or the content, follow these steps to cancel your account on or before the day you marked in your calendar.
