With winter fast approaching, it’s a good time to get your cozy on and settle in for some binge watching. But what to watch? It may seem like you’re subscribed to every streaming service under the sun, from Netflix to HBO Max, but you can always have more.
Maybe you ditched cable, but miss your CBS procedurals; that’s where Paramount+ comes in. Looking to dive deeper into the 90 Day Fiancé universe? Discovery+ is at your service. And they’re both available at a steep discount for Black Friday, alongside several other services.
The Best Black Friday Streaming Service Deals
Amazon Prime Video Channels
Though Amazon’s Prime Video service itself isn’t getting a discount, you can take advantage of Prime Video Channels, which are adds-on streaming services that you’re charged for via your Amazon account. Usually, there’s no discount for connecting a third-party service to Amazon; it’s more the convenience of paying for all your streaming services in one spot. But for Black Friday, a number of streaming services will be available for $1.99 for two months via Amazon.
Discovery+’s library of content reaches deep into several lifestyle and documentary categories and is available for a reasonable monthly price. We dinged it for lack of offline downloads on mobile and other expected features, but with this deal, you can binge-watch all that TLC, Lifetime, and others have to offer for less than $3.
Hulu is a dependable option for streaming new and classic shows as well as live TV on nearly every platform. It’s a top choice among video streaming services, and for Black Friday, the ad-supported version is just $1.99 per month for one year.
See what all the fuss is about with The White Lotus and House of the Dragon on HBO Max. For Black Friday, its ad-supported tier is just $1.99 per month for three months.
Paramount+ improves on CBS All Access by offering more original shows and sports at a lower price, courtesy of all the channels that ViacomCBS owns, including BET, CBS, Comedy Central, MTV, Nickelodeon, and Smithsonian Channel. For Black Friday, you can get 50% off if you commit to a one-year plan through Nov. 27. Essential is $24.99, while Premium is $49.99. The latter drops the ads, includes more sports and your local CBS station live, plus the ability to download shows.
Peacock presents popular NBC network shows along with a worthwhile collection of movies to stream. It’s where you’ll find The Office, as well as originals like Girls5eva. Some of its catalog is available via free, ad-supported tier, but if you want to level up to more content (still with ads), it’s just 99 cents per month for one year instead of $4.99.
Live TV streaming service Philo offers a valuable mix of entertainment and lifestyle channels at a reasonable price, though it lacks news networks and sports content. If that’s not a deal breaker, new subscribers can get $20 off one month of Philo with code THANKS, starting on Friday.
Sling TV enables you to watch dozens of live television channels for a moderate monthly fee and offers extensive programming options. It also lets you rent movies and offers a free tier of on-demand and preprogrammed content.
This deal isn’t Black Friday-specific, but Disney+ will raise its prices across the board on Dec. 8, so you only have two weeks to lock in a lower price. Starting Dec. 8, the standard Disney+ plan will cost $10.99 per month or $109.99 per year, up from the current $7.99 and $79.99 rate. Bundles with Hulu and ESPN+ will also see a price hike.
