Black Friday sales go way beyond tech and kitchen appliances—this year, there are a whole bunch of streaming service subscriptions available for a fraction of the price. Check out some of the best streaming deals below.


No matter if you're a new or returning customer, you can get a full year of Hulu for just $1 a month. The only real catch here is that the deal is for the ad-supported version of the service. But for a buck a month and 85 percent off overall, that might not be the worst trade-off. This deal expires on November 29 at 11:59 p.m. PST.

Find it: Hulu


New customers can get a month of Paramount+ for free until November 29. This is applicable for both the ad-supported Essential plan and the ad-free Premium plan. Once the month is up, you'll be charged full price for whatever plan you picked: $5 a month for the Essential or $10 for the Premium. If you subscribe through Amazon Prime, though, you can get up to two months of Paramount+ for $1 a month. (But more on that below)

Through December 11, you can get three months of Starz for $5 a month, down from its usual $9.

New subscribers can also get three months of Discovery+ for $1 a month. That's down 80 percent from its standard price, and you've got until November 29 to claim it. You'll be charged the normal rate of $5 a month after the initial three-month period is up, so keep an eye on that.

Find it: Discovery+


Get a free month of Showtime and then pay only $4 a month for four months with this deal that expires on November 30 at 11:59 p.m. PST. That's just $16 for five months, which is down considerably from Showtime's typical price of $11 a month.

Starz, AMC+, Showtime, Discovery+, and more on Amazon Prime

In addition to getting two months of Paramount+ through Amazon, you can also find the same deals for subscriptions to Starz, AMC+, Discovery+, Showtime, and more. This deal is only open to Prime members and expires on November 29. You can also get six months of Disney+ for free when you sign up for Amazon Music Unlimited—check out those details here.
