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.
We haven’t seen any Netflix Black Friday deals just yet; it probably doesn’t need to offer any special discounts to get you to sign up and spend an entire weekend watching Squid Game or the latest season of Selling Sunset. But there are other services that may have flew under your radar, and Black Friday is a great time to check them out on the cheap.
Maybe you ditched cable, but miss dramas from AMC; that’s where AMC+ 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.

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 $0.99 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 $0.99 per month for one year.
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, the usual one-week free trial is expanding to one month.
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 $2.49 for six months instead of $4.99.
Showtime’s streaming service includes all the cable channel’s best titles, from Billions to Shameless, but in our review, we found that its steep price and limited features make it difficult to recommend to any but the most dedicated fans. On Black Friday, you can shave a few bucks off that $10.99 monthly price and get four months for $3.99 per month after a 30-day trial.
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 (and those who have never done a free trial) can get $20 off one month of Philo for Black 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; it was first announced over the summer. But it’s still going, so we might as well tell you about it. If you subscribe to Amazon Music Unlimited, you can get six months free of Disney+, which usually runs $7.99 per month. (If you already subscribe to Disney+, you’re out of luck.)
