Had it up to here with all the recent streaming price hikes? Get ready for a change of pace, with many of the biggest streamers offering a slew of price cuts for Black Friday.
Hulu, Paramount+, Max, and NFL Sunday Ticket on YouTube are among the streaming services offering steep Black Friday discounts, but the deals won’t last for long.
A couple things to keep in mind:
- Most of these deals are reserved for new and returning subscribers.
- These Black Friday deals will eventually expire, and when they do, they’ll auto-renew at the standard rate unless you cancel first—so don’t forget to smash the “cancel subscription” button if you don’t want to pay extra.
With that, on to the deals…
Hulu with ads: 12 months for $0.99 a month (87% off)
Hulu’s annual Black Friday deal has become something of a holiday tradition, and it’s back again this year. For just a buck a month, you can get Hulu with ads for a full 12 months, an 87% savings compared to the usual $7.99/month price. That’s a killer discount, but it’s only available to new and returning Hulu subscribers (“returning” means you’ve been gone for at least a month), and the offer ends on November 28.
Paramount+: Essential for $1.99/month or with Showtime for $3.99/month for 3 months (67% off)
Ready for some Yellowstone or Star Trek spinoffs? New and returning subscribers can snag 3 months’ worth of Paramount+ for less during this Black Friday offer. Paramount+ Essential is just $1.99 a month for three months as part of the deal, while Paramount+ with Showtime is $3.99/month for three months. Normally, those Paramount+ plans go for $5.99 a month and $11.99/month, respectively. The deal expires on December 3.
Max with ads: $2.99/month for 6 months (70% off)
Succession, The Last of Us, Game of Thrones, and more are yours for the taking with this enticing Black Friday deal from Max. For 6 months, new and returning Max subscribers can get Max with ads for just $2.99 a month, a 70% discount versus the usual $9.99/month rate. The deal expires on November 27.
NFL Sunday Ticket on YouTube (up to 49% off)
After slashing prices for the remainder of the season, YouTube is offering yet another NFL Sunday Ticket discount during Black Friday. Starting now until November 27, you can pick up the NFL Sunday Ticket add-on for YouTube TV for just $89 for the rest of the season (down from the latest post-discount price of $174), paid in four installments of $22.25 each. Not a YouTube TV subscriber? You can get NFL Sunday Ticket through YouTube Primetime Channels for $139 (down from $224), paid in four $27.25 installments.
Note: On YouTube’s “Explore plans” page for NFL Sunday Ticket, you’ll see the regular prices following YouTube’s mid-season discount. If you select a plan and click the “Get NFL Sunday Ticket” button, you’ll see the reduced Black Friday prices.
