Entertainment services like Amazon Prime Video, Disney+, BINGE and Apple TV+ offer veritable smorgasbords of streaming entertainment just waiting to be gobbled up by hungry film and TV buffs. Like an all-you-can-eat buffet, though, it's understandable if you don't want to plonk down your hard-earned cash until you know that the feast within is actually worth it.

This is where free trials come into play. Many of the major Australian streaming services offer free trials for new customers. It can save you from unwittingly signing up for a service that only has enough good content to last you a week or two of binge-watching, tops.

Free trials aren't the only way to score access to top-quality entertainment at no cost, either. More and more Internet providers are throwing in free (or at the very least, unmetered streaming) subscriptions with their broadband or mobile plans. That's perfect for customers who are looking to upgrade their Internet connection anyway.

Netflix no longer offering free trials

The biggest streaming service in the world sensationally halted free trials for Australians in March 2020. It was an interesting call as the company has never faced stiffer competition in the streaming space thanks to the arrival of Disney+, Paramount+ and Apple TV+. Yet we wouldn't count on the free trial coming back in the future given its market position.

What happened to the Disney+ free trial?

Like Netflix, Disney+ has removed its 7-day free trial offer globally since June 2020. This is the result of faster than expected growth. Disney+ has now surpassed 90 million subscribers globally. While we aren't sure if the Disney+ free trial will ever return they have run special promotions since via Woolworths with a 14-day trial and a 30-day free trial with Xbox.
