2024 is here and with it we hope we'll see even more great offers from the top streaming services on the market like Disney Plus, Paramount Plus, and cable cutters including Sing TV. From free trials to price plummets, bundled platforms, and more, we don't believe there is a need to subscribe to every service under the sun. Find an excellent promotion with our guide to the best streaming service deals, binge your way through its catalog, cancel, and move onto the next. Start right here.

You'll get two catalogs, meaning being able to stream both Yellowstone and Yellowjackets, as well as newer titles like The Curse.

While the Disney Plus deal has now ended, Max has answered all our prayers with a mega deal across all three of its plans when you prepay for a month. Saving 40% off your first year, find out all the details below on the HBO Max price cut.

Cable-cutting dream Sling TV has an excellent introductory offer, too. You can now save 50% on your first month across all its packages. It's also worth checking out some of the great offers it has on other streaming services like Discovery Plus and AMC Plus. Don't forget Philo also always offers a 7-day free trial. However, if you want an even more extensive cord cutter option, FuboTV is currently offering $20 off all plans for your first month.

Streaming deals FAQ

What is the best streaming deal right now?

Truthfully, it comes down to personal preference where the best streaming deal is concerned. Some streaming services will offer an exceptional discount on their plans, but their content won't be to certain people's tastes. 

Right now until April 9, you can save 40% on Max's annual plans! 

Those looking for a cheaper alternative to cable, Sling TV has you covered with its current 50% off deal across all its plans.

If you simply want a selection of great on-demand entertainment, we cannot recommend the Disney Plus bundle enough. Get Disney Plus, Hulu, and ESPN Plus for just $14.99 a month with ads, or opt out of commercials for $19.99 a month.

With Paramount Plus and Showtime now merged under Paramount Plus' Premium plan, sign up for just $11.99 a month, or $119.99 annually.

What streaming service is the cheapest?

When we bring it down to numerical value, Paramount Plus and Peacock TV are the cheapest streaming services out there for US customers, with both offering baseline plans from $5.99 a month. However, it does come down to personal preference. What some might deem entertaining, others may see as utter trash. 

Apple TV Plus is great value for money at $9.99 a month. While its library still remains fairly streamlined, you can't argue that there is hefty budget put behind its productions and their big-name casting.

Are you able to bundle Hulu with other services?

Not only is Hulu a part of the excellent value Disney Plus bundle (throwing together Disney Plus, Hulu and ESPN Plus for just $14.99 a month, or pay $9.99 a month for just Hulu and Disney Plus), you also have the option of adding on a number of excellent services to your standalone Hulu subscription.

Choose between Max, Cinemax, Showtime, and Starz, or have a combination of all four depending on what you want to be able to watch. In some cases, you'll even be able to trial these services before paying.

Which streaming service is the best in 2024?

The best streaming service that reigns supreme across both sides of the Atlantic is Netflix, offering a wealth of great movies and TV shows as well as its own, hugely popular Original series. It also offers different plans to cater for what you want and how much you're willing to pay.

While Netflix is the obvious choice, for those in the States, Max and Hulu are full of incredibly gritty entertainment. For international subscribers, you can get Star on Disney Plus, which essentially consists of imports from Hulu, including The Dropout, The Bear, and The Kardashians.
