If it seems like every streaming service has received a price hike this year, it’s probably because most of them have. Netflix, Apple TV Plus, Discovery Plus, and Disney Plus are just a few recent examples, although there are still ways around price increases. Black Friday offers all kinds of deals, including ways to save on your monthly streaming bill.
In fact, some streaming services are offering deals that offset recent price hikes — well, at least temporarily. For example, Paramount Plus may have raised the price of its cheapest plan to $5.99 per month, but it currently starts at just $1.99. What’s even better is that new and returning subscribers are eligible for the deal, which is extremely rare when it comes to streaming deals.
