We live in a golden age of TV, and a lot of it is thanks to the streaming services – from the veterans like Netflix and Amazon Prime Video, to the newbies like Disney+ and Apple TV+, and even speciality streamers like Shudder and BritBox – we’re spoiled for choice.

But if you add all these services up, things can get expensive. Thankfully, most streaming services constantly offer deals, discounts and free trials – so you can always find a bargain.

To help you save money AND watch excellent TV, I’ll collect the best TV deals out there, for both streaming services and relevant devices. This list will be updated periodically – so make sure you bookmark this page (And sharing on social media is always appreciated).

NordVPN Birthday Deal

NordVPN has been our Editor’s Choice for several years now, and for good reason, especially if you need a VPN for unblocking free American streaming services, such as HBO Max, Tubi, Peacock, the US version of Netflix (see our full guide on how to watch American Netflix in the UK) and many others.

NordVPN is currently celebrating its 10th birthday, so the Birthday deal is going to run until the end of March.

The biggest discount is being offered on the 2-Year Plan – but in addition to the discount, each customer (of the 2-year plan) will get a random free gift – extra time on your subscription, up to two whole free years.

Amazon Prime Video Deals

Prime Video, the streaming video service from Amazon, can be had either as part of the full Amazon Prime membership, or on its own. It includes thousands of TV shows and movies, including originals like Jack Ryan and Picard (see our Amazon Prime Video review).

Prime Video Free Trial

If you haven’t had Amazon Prime for the past 12 months, you can get a free 30-days trial for either Prime Video (normally £5.99/month) or the full Amazon Prime service (normally £7.99/month or £79/year).

Remember that once the 30 days are up, you will be automatically billed for the next month – so don’t forget to cancel if you don’t want it anymore.

Premium Amazon Channels – Free Trials

Amazon Channels can be added-on to your Amazon Prime subscription. They launched in the UK a couple of years ago, and you can pick and choose additional premium channels to subscribe to for a monthly fee.

Most Prime Channels usually have a free 7-days trial, yes some have free 30-days trial (Keep in mind, you still need to be a member of Prime Video – which also has a free trial).

Here are some premium channels you can get a free trial for:

Amazon Channels

Six Free Months Amazon Prime For Students

Students (who can prove to Amazon they’re actually students) can get six free months of Amazon Prime. After tha, they get 50% off the regular price, so just £3.99/month.

Up To 24 Free Months Amazon Prime with Vodafone

If you’re planning to get either a new phone or a new SIM-Only contract, and Vodaphone is an option for you, you can get Prime Video for up to 24 months – for free.

Not all of Vodaphone’s Pay Monthly / Sim-Only plans include this deal – but the ones that do are clearly marked. Plus, remember you’re signing a 12-months/24-months contract.

Disney+ Deals

Disney’s new streaming service, Disney+, launched in the UK on March 24. When Disney+ revealed its full launch lineup, we saw more than 800 films and TV shows, from the worlds of Disney, Marvel, Pixar, Star Wars and National Geographic.

In the UK, Disney+ will normally cost £7.99/month or £79.90 for a full year. See our comprehensive Disney+ UK review here.

Disney+ used to offer a free trial – but unfortunately, it’s been scrapped for now.

Up to 6 Free Months with O2 Extra

New O2 customers, or existing customers who are upgrading their plan, can get up to 6 free months of Disney+.

If you’re an existing customer who’s not due for an upgrade, you can subscribe to Disney+ via O2, and get a discount of £2/month off your bill.

NOW TV Deals

NOW (formerly known as NOW TV) is Sky’s answer to Netflix – a contract-free streaming service with separate passes for Entertainment (TV), Cinema, Sports and Kids (See our full NOW TV review)

NOW Free Trial

If you’re a new NOW TV customer, you can get a 7-days free trial to the Entertainment Pass or Cinema Pass – or all three of them together.

Remember, you will get billed once the trial is over – so don’t forget to cancel if you don’t want to continue.

Apple TV+ Deals

The streaming TV service from Apple launched last year with a small selection of original shows – but since then, new originals have launched every month, so the catalogue is getting better, with shows like The Morning Show, For All Mankind and Servant.

With most of the shows, you can watch the first two episodes for free.

Apple TV+ Free 7-Days Trial

You can get a free trial of Apple TV+ for seven days, in which you can watch as much as you want. Just remember that the subscription will renew automatically at £4.99/a month, so don’t forget to cancel if you don’t want it anymore.

Apple TV+ Free 3 Months

If you buy a new Apple device (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Apple TV or a Mac), you’re entitled to one free year of Apple TV+. At the end of the 12 months, the subscription will auto-renew at £4.99/a month.

BritBox UK Deals

BritBox UK, is a streaming TV subscription service that brings past and current British TV programmes from ITV, BBC, Channel 5 and, in the future, Channel 4. Additionally, the service holds 600+ episodes of Classic Doctor Who. See our BritBox UK review here.

BritBox UK Grid

BritBox UK Free Trial

If you’re new to BritBox, you can get a free 7-days trial (they sometimes change it to 30 days). Once the trial is over, the subscription will auto-renew at £5.99/month, so don’t forget to cancel if you don’t want it.

BritBox UK Free Trial Via Amazon Prime Video

BritBox is also available as a Prime Video Channel – which means you can watch it on every device that has the Prime Video app. However, you need to be an Amazon Prime member – and then add BritBox on top of it with the regular £5.99/month.

However, you can also get a 7-days free trial via the Prime Video channel.

6 Free Months of BritBox with EE

EE customers (both new and existing) on Pay-Monthly contracts can get six free months of BritBox. Plus, data you use to stream BritBox will not go down from your plan.

At the end of the six months, the subscription will auto-renew at the regular £5.99/month, so remember to cancel if you don’t want it.

Audible Deals

Streaming TV is not the only entertainment out there – you can also stream audiobooks, thanks to Audible, which has one of the largest audiobooks collections in the world.

Prices are the best when you join a monthly subscription, which gives you book credits each month.

Free Audiobook With A 30-Days Trial

If you’re a new Audible customer, you can get a free trial for 30 days – which means you get one credit for a totally free audiobook.

Once the trial is over, the subscription will auto-renew at £7.99/month, so remember to cancel if you don’t want it.

50% Off Audible For 3 Months

If you want more than one audiobook, this separate deal might be better for you than the free trial – you can get a full Audible subscription (with one book-credit each month) for £3.99/month (instead of £7.99), for up to three months.
