We've seen some exciting streaming service deals so far this year from the likes of both HBO Max and Disney Plus, but currently we're experiencing a bit of a drought in the way of amazing offers across platforms. That said, there are still a few offers worth talking about across streaming platforms, including cord cutters and bundles alike. 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.

The best streaming deal right now sees the Max free trial make its long awaited return. Coinciding with the second season of House of the Dragon, sign up now for a 1-week Max trial.

While not strictly a limited time deal, if you're considering Paramount Plus, we always recommend getting more for your money and stretching for the Paramount Plus and Showtime plan. You'll get two catalogs, meaning being able to stream both Yellowstone and Yellowjackets, as well as newer titles like Sonic the Hedgehog's Knuckles, and new movies like Mean Girls and One Love.

Cable-cutting dream Sling TV has currently ditched its 50% off introductory offer, instead allowing you to save $30 when you prepay for your first three months in line with the NBA Playoffs.  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 the one to go for and also has a generous trial period.

From free trials to discounted rates and new subscriber offers, find the latest streaming deals currently live across the likes of Disney Plus, Hulu, and some of the other best streaming services to subscribe to below.

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.
