Hocus Pocus 2, the long-awaited sequel to the 1993 cult classic comedy, debuted on Disney+ on September 30, and it’s the perfect family-friendly watch this Halloween, bringing Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy back together after almost 30 years, reprising their roles as the Sanderson sisters. The trio is joined by both new and familiar faces as the spell-casting sisters are once again unleashed upon the town of Salem. You can check out our Hocus Pocus 2 review to see our take on the film, and if you’re looking to watch Hocus Pocus 2 online this spooky Monday, we’ve got everything you need to know below.

How to watch Hocus Pocus 2 in the U.S.

Hocus Pocus 2 is exclusive to Disney+. That means that you’ll need to sign up for Disney’s premium streaming service in order to watch Hocus Pocus 2 online in the U.S. Unfortunately, the Disney+ free trial was done away with awhile ago, so as of now, there’s no way to watch Hocus Pocus 2 for free. The good news is that Disney+ is quite affordable at just $8 per month or $80 per year, and with a huge library of Disney, Marvel, and Star Wars shows and films (along with other exclusive content), you’ve got a lot of entertainment at your fingertips here.

Another, and perhaps better, option is to sign up for the Disney Bundle. This gets you Disney+ along with basic Hulu and ESPN+ for just $14 per month, saving you a nice chunk of change on the combined prices of three streaming services. Along with letting you watch Hocus Pocus 2 online, the Disney Bundle also gets you access to the catalog of Hulu shows and movies as well as all the live an on-demand sports entertainment that ESPN+ has to offer, such as UFC fight live streams.

How to watch Hocus Pocus 2 from abroad

Traveling abroad and still want to watch Hocus Pocus 2 on Disney+? If you’re outside of the U.S., region-based broadcasting restrictions can make streaming difficult. But there’s a solution: a VPN, or virtual private network. A VPN encrypts and routes your connection through remote servers, making it easy to bypass streaming restrictions so you can enjoy your content libraries from anywhere. Our top pick among the best VPN services is NordVPN, which is a secure, reliable, affordable, and easy-to-use virtual private that delivers the fast speeds you need for streaming. There’s even a 30-day money-back guarantee so you can sign up for NordVPN and use it for one month risk-free.

ESPN+ Free Trial: Can you sign up for free in 2022?

Today, there are many options for streaming sports, which means the dark ages of live sports broadcasts are over. It's no longer difficult to stream live sports, games, and fights online, and one of the best streaming services for this purpose is ESPN+. The sports broadcaster launched this premium streaming platform in 2018, and it's since become the go-to app for streaming sports events like UFC fights, Major League Baseball games, boxing bouts, and much more, along with offering a ton of on-demand sports content in the form of exclusive shows, films, and documentaries. It's a paid service, though, so it's only natural that you might want to give an ESPN+ free trial a spin before you commit to paying. If that applies to you, keep reading, because we've got everything you need to know right here -- including several ways you can save and maybe even get ESPN+ for free.
Is there an ESPN+ free trial?

The short answer is there is no ESPN+ free trial as of now. That's in contrast to most streaming services, which usually either offer a trial period (the 30-day Hulu free trial being one of the best) or a pared-down free streaming plan such as those offered by Sling TV and Peacock. ESPN offered a free trial back in 2018 when it launched its premium streaming platform, but that was sadly short-lived. If you're looking for a way to try ESPN+ for free (or at least save some money on your subscription), though, then don't give up just yet -- you have some options.
