Streaming is not the cost-efficient miracle it once seemed. Just a few years ago, when Max (formerly HBO Max) and Netflix were really the only streamers around, cord-cutting was a great way to avoid paying $100 (or more) every month for cable or satellite. Now, however, other streamers have entered the fray with their own buzzy programming, from Hulu to Paramount+, and major studios have launched their own streaming services with exclusive content. And with each of these services costing anywhere from $5 to $20, it’s very easy to rack up a streaming bill that’s close to, if not more than that pricey cable package.

Best Hulu Deals

If you want to subscribe to Hulu, the streamer is currently offering a 30-day free trial for its on-demand service (with ads). Sign-up for the free trial here.


Another way to get Hulu for free: T-Mobile customers can get “Hulu on Us.” Hulu is joining Apple TV+, Netflix and MLB.TV as the fourth free streaming service that is included as part of T-Mobile’s “Go5G Next Plan.” See if your current T-Mobile plan qualifies or sign up for the streaming deal here.


Best Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+ Deals

Love Hulu but want to sign-up for other streamers as well? The best streaming deal online is the Disney Bundle, which includes Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+ together starting at just $14.99 a month. That’s a savings of 44% per month on your streaming bill versus going with each service individually.

$14.99 $26.96 44% off


The Disney Bundle is offered in three tiers: Duo Basic, which costs $9.99 a month and gets you Disney+ and Hulu (both with ads); Trio Basic, which costs $14.99 a month and gets you all three services (with ads); and the Trio Premium, which costs $24.99 a month and gets you all three (with no ads).

If you just want a discount on Disney+ (without Hulu and ESPN+), head here. Right now, you can snag a membership for $7.99 a month.


ESPN+ on its own, meantime, costs $10.99 a month. But you can get a discount by springing for the ESPN+ annual plan, which costs $109.99 — that’s a savings of 17%.

$109.99 $131.88 17% off


Best Apple TV Deals

Apple’s streaming service touts big-name stars like Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon (starring in The Morning Show) and Jason Sudekis in Ted Lasso, and while it may not have the breadth of content other channels do, it has some truly standout prestige shows and award-winning movies like Killers of. the Flower Moon. The service is $9.99 monthly, but the tech giant is offering a free seven-day trial to new users and three months free when you buy select new Apple devices.

Best Sling TV Deals

Looking to cut the cord and finally get rid of your outdated cable package? One of the best ways to get live TV online is through Sling TV. One of our favorite live TV streaming services, Sling is an easy and convenient way to get the channels you actually watch, without paying a premium for stuff you don’t need.

Right now, Sling is offering a new deal that gets you an entire month of live TV streaming (for their Orange or Blue plans) for half off. This is the best Sling TV deal online and a great way to test out the service for the first time. Pricing for Sling usually starts at $40 for a monthly package, so the new deal gets you a 50% discount — no promo code or contract required (note that pricing varies based on zip code and local channel availability).

$20 $40 50% off

Right now you can also get Sling Orange + Blue starting at just $27.50 (compared to $55/month). That’s half off for your first month. That way you’ll get the best of both worlds and access to your favorite live sports and entertainment, all for half off.

Best Paramount+ Deals

With hit series like 1923, live sports from NFL to the NCAA, and blockbusters like Top Gun: Maverick, Paramount+ has made itself well worth signing up for. It’s already a great deal at just $5.99 a month with a seven-day free trial, but through July 17, you can save 50% off the ad-free Paramount+ with Showtime plan (normally $11.99 monthly) when you use the promo code THECHI.


You can also save on Paramount+ by paying annually, which brings the monthly prices down to $5 and $10 respectively. And if you’re a student you can bring that price down even further, as Paramount+ offers students a 25% discount on their subscription.

Best Peacock Deals

NBC’s Peacock is another solid streaming service that’s normally on the affordable side at $5.99 a month for a Premium ad-supported plan or $11.99 a month for a Premium Plus ad-free plan. However, right now you can get 12 months for the price of 10 when you sign up for an overall annual subscription ($59.99 for ad-supported, $119.99 for ad-free), which will save you 17% over the year.

$59.99 $71.88 17% off


Best Amazon Prime Video Deals

Amazon Prime Video’s 30-day free trial is already one of the best deals in streaming, but there are more ways to save on the service.


Some Prime Video users also don’t realize that you can get the streaming service separately from a full Prime membership. Prime Video à la carte costs just $8.99 a month, which saves $6 a month compared to paying for a full Prime membership. Like most streaming services, you can also save on your Prime subscription by paying for a year up-front at $149, saving you about $40 over the course of the year.

Best Starz Deals

Starz is a great place to find shows like Power, P-Valley, Hightown and more. Regularly $9.99 a month, Starz has a flash sale that gets you 50% off streaming for the first three months. That’s a just $4.99 a month — no promo code needed. The semi-annual plan will also save you 66% off compared to the monthly plan, and is now just $19.99/month for six months (reg. $45.99/month).

$4.99 $9.99 50% off


Best Max Deals

Max is home to some of the year’s best exclusive content, from The Last of Us to series like Fixer Upper. But Max rarely offers deals, and you can’t get a free trial through the streamer’s website. However, for a limited time, Max is offering the B/R Sports Add-On (typically $9.99 per month) for free for eligible new and existing subscribers.

You can also get Max courtesy of wireless carrier Cricket. If you need a new phone plan, check out Cricket’s Unlimited phone plan, which costs $60 a month and comes with Max for free.


Access to Max starts at $9.99 a month, but you can get a discount on your Max subscription by paying for a year up-front ($99 for the ad-supported plan, $149 for the ad-free plan), which can save as much as 20% compared to paying month-to-month.

$99.99 $119.88 17% off


While Amazon used to offer a Max free trial through Prime Video, Max currently does not have any free trial offers available.

Best Roku Deals

Created by Roku in 2014, you’ll find more than just price cuts on the popular streaming sticks for National Streaming Day. While you can still save big on Roku players (which are currently on sale for $10-$200 off), the streaming device company is also offering up to 90% off subscriptions to Apple TV+, MGM+, Shudder, Starz, and more, along with three months of Apple TV+ through May 22.
