We decided to take a look at all the streaming services you can sign up for that have 30-day free trials. That way you get the most out of your dollar, while also streaming the heck out of your new favorite movies or TV series. Keep in mind that all of these offers are for new subscribers only.

Some other services also offer temporary 30-day free trials via special promo codes. However, at the moment, there are no such offers being made. If we find some, we will add them to this list.

Before we start, here’s a quick note. The biggest video streaming service, Netflix, has offered a 30-day free trial for new subscribers since it first launched. However, the service recently, and very quietly, stopped offering a free trial in the US. The offer is still valid in a lot of other countries, at least for now.

30-day free trials for streaming services:

  1. Hulu
  2. Amazon Prime Video
  3. YouTube Premium
  4. Showtime
