Every streaming free trial in October 2021
Jump on these free trials for months worth of free TV, movies and more with services like Disney, Apple and Amazon.
Entertainment services like Amazon Prime Video, Netflix and Disney+ offer veritable smorgasbords of streaming entertainment just waiting to be gobbled up by hungry film and TV buffs. Like an all-you-can-eat buffet, though, it’s understandable if you don’t want to plonk down your hard-earned cash until you know that the feast within is actually worth it.
This is where free trials come into play. Almost all of the major NZ streaming services now offer free trials for new customers, saving you from unwittingly signing up for a service that only has enough good content to last you a week or two of binge-watching, tops.
Free trials aren’t the only way to score access to top-quality entertainment at no cost, either. More and more Internet providers are throwing in free (or at the very least, unmetered streaming) subscriptions with their broadband or mobile plans, perfect for customers who are looking to upgrade their Internet connection anyway.
Netflix no longer offering free trials
The biggest streaming service in the world has sensationally halted free trials across the world. It’s sensational as the company has never faced stiffer competition in the streaming space thanks to the arrival of Disney+ and Apple TV+, amongst others. Hopefully the free trials will be reinstated in the future.
