Even as streaming services like Netflix and Disney+ have done away with free trials, others have not only kept them, but expanded them. Here we’ve compiled every major streaming service in the United States that offers a free trial to new customers.

Take note that if you are a returning customer, you might not be eligible for a trial. Each company has their own criteria. For example, Amazon Prime customers can get a free trial if they haven’t been active for 12 months.

Of course you can always try working around these restrictions by using a different email, username, or payment method- but you didn’t hear that from us! Wink wink…

Information is accurate as of the date specified. This page will be updated on a regular basis as new trials come and go.
