Streaming movies, TV shows, and music is so commonplace these days, it’s hard to remember how we functioned before services such as Hulu, Disney+, and YouTube TV existed. Cyber Monday is here, and though the event is usually thought of as the best day to order online items, it is also a day that offers great deals on subscriptions like streaming services. If you’re bored with your current TV lineup or are shopping for a movie or music lover this holiday season, these Cyber Monday deals on streaming services are for you.
Hulu is offering the regular subscription (ad-supported) for just $1.99 a month for 12 full months as a special Cyber Monday deal. Hulu features a streaming library with thousands of TV episodes and movies, and most new episodes are available the day after they air. Hulu also has several award-winning originals that you can’t watch anywhere else. You can watch shows and movies on your laptop, phone, tablet, or TV with up to six user profiles. You can also watch on two different screens at the same time with this plan. After the 12 month deal period, the price goes up to $5.99 per month, which is still pretty cheap for a streaming service.
The Disney Bundle — Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+ for $12.99/month
Though this is technically not on sale, this is by far the best bang for your buck when it comes to streaming bundles. The Disney Bundle includes the regular ad-sponsored version of Hulu mentioned above, ESPN+, and Disney+ for just $12.99 per month. The best part about this bundle is that this is not an introductory price that will expire after a period of time.
ESPN+ features thousands of live sporting events from NHL, MLB, MLS, Top Rank Boxing, and more. You also get PPV events and UFC Fight Nights and access to college sports. Disney+ features both live and on-demand programs and movies. The service gives you the best of Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic, and more. You also get unlimited downloads of any TV show or movie on up to ten devices, and you can stream four different shows on four different compatible devices at once. Included with Disney+ is a whole library of Disney+ originals — never-before-seen new movies, documentaries, TV shows, and more. Thousands of classic TV shows and films such as all 30 seasons of The Simpsons and The Sound of Music are also available with this service.
Amazon Prime is the most popular subscription service there is, but many people just Prime to shop and forget that Amazon also offers a whole library of TV shows and movies for streaming. Amazon Prime also has a massive library of Amazon original movies and TV shows that you can’t watch anywhere else, such as Homecoming, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, and Gortimer Gibbons: Life on Normal Street. If you already have an Amazon Prime account, you are likely aware that you get a 50% discount on movies and more, but if you don’t have a Prime account, this is just another reason to sign up for one.
Sling — 1 month free and only $30 until January
Sling is a streaming service that offers more than 50 channels of top news, TV series, live sports, and more. One of the things that sets Sling apart from its competitors is that you get tons of cable channels and free local channels. As part of the Cyber Monday promotion, you can get a Sling BOGO deal that gives you one month free when you pay for a month. The subscription includes access to the College Football Playoff National Championship, free cloud DVR (10 hours), thousands of movies and TV shows on-demand, and over 50 channels, all with no hidden fees. After the introductory BOGO deal, the monthly price starts at $30 per month.
Peacock is NBCUniversal’s streaming service that offers hundreds of movies, TV shows, live sporting events, and news programs. Like many other streaming services, you can watch shows that have previously aired elsewhere and Peacock originals such as the new Saved By The Bell. Peacock gives you the option to sign up for both monthly and annual plans, which is nice if you’re not sure you want to commit to a yearly plan right from the start. You can stream your favorites from your TV, computer, smartphone, tablet, or game console. The Cyber Monday deal gives you 20% off the annual subscription price of $50, making your price $40 per year.
YouTube TV — Sign up and get a Chromecast with Google TV
YouTube TV made its debut in 2017 and has been a strong competitor in the streaming game ever since. For their Cyber Monday promotion, YouTube TV is offering a free Google Chromecast (a $50 value) when you sign up and make your first payment of $65. YouTube TV features over 85 channels of news, live sports, entertainment, movies, and more. One of the best things about YouTube TV is that the DVR is limitless — that’s right, you can record as much content as you want and never run out of space. You get six accounts with each membership, and there is no cable box, no contract, and no hidden fees. You can cancel any time you want, and you pay monthly, so you’re not locked into anything for longer than a month.
Best Buy is a leader when it comes to Cyber Monday deals, and this promotion illustrates why. Today through Best Buy, you can get a four-month Apple Music subscription for free! The subscription is a digital download, and you need a BestBuy.com account to redeem it, but that’s it. Apple Music is a library of over 70 million songs that you get full access to ad-free. You can stream music, create playlists, and download your favorite tracks to play offline. There is also live radio and thousands of podcasts to listen to. With features like Listen Now, search, and editor’s curated playlists, you will never search for something to listen to again.
Right now Amazon is offering an Audible subscription for $5 per month for the first six months, which is a savings of $3 a month. If you love to read but just don’t have the time to sit down with a book, this is the Cyber Monday deal for you. This could also be your chance to check that special bookworm off your holiday gift list.
