Has Disney Plus ended its one-week free trial?

Disney Plus, the powerhouse streaming service taking on Netflix with exclusive Disney, Marvel and Star Wars content plus 30 seasons of The Simpsons, launched back in November 2019.

The streaming service initially launched in select countries, and wasn’t available to fans in the UK until 24 March 2020.

As the site releases two of its most anticipated titles – a recording of the musical Hamilton and Frozen 2 – the seven-day free trial option is noticeably missing for new subscribers.

Where has the Disney Plus free trial gone?

Disney Plus has shut down its free trial subscription.

CNET reports that the free trial actually ended in June.  

A Disney spokeswoman told Variety: ‘We continue to test and evaluate different marketing, offers and promotions to grow Disney Plus.

‘The service was set at an attractive price-to-value proposition that we believe delivers a compelling entertainment offering on its own.’

What is on Disney Plus?

Disney Plus has a whole host of titles to enjoy, including exclusive rights to air all Disney classics, all the Marvel movies, all the Star Wars movies and the original series The Mandalorian.

This weekend, which is a holiday weekend in the United States as they celebrate Independence Day, is a big one for the site.

They have released a recording of Hamilton, the juggernaut musical based on the life of one of the founding fathers of America.

The recording features the original Broadway cast and was filmed live at the Richard Rodgers Theatre.

Disney Plus has also released Frozen 2 earlier than expected today, Friday 3 July.

How much does Disney Plus cost?

If you haven’t already signed up you might have missed out on the free trial, but a subscription for the service is cheaper than some of its rivals, including Netflix.

Users in the UK can stream Disney Plus for £5.99 a month or pay for a full year for £59.99.  

Netflix costs £8.99 for the cheapest subscription, £11.99 for a premium subscription.

Amazon Prime costs £7.99 per month in the UK.
