New customers – how to save money on Disney+
If you’ve yet to sign up to Disney+ you can take advantage of the current prices if you sign up by February 22, 2021.
For monthly customers, that means you’ll benefit for six months of paying the current price before the increases come into force on August 23, 2021.
Or for annual customers, you’ll get a whole year of paying the current price.
The new prices don’t come into force until February 23, 2021, for new customers.
Existing customers – how to save money on Disney+
Unfortunately, there isn’t much you can do about the price of Disney+ going up.
But if you’re looking to cut costs in general, you can unsubscribe from a monthly package for free.
To cancel Disney+, go to your account settings and click “cancel subscription”.
If you’re an annual Disney+ customer, you would have already paid for the service upfront.
It means you won’t be entitled to any money back as you’ve already been debited for the service.
Alternatively, if you live in a house or flat share, it’s worth checking if any of your flatmates also have Disney+.
That way you could possibly share your subscription service and split the cost.
With Disney+ you can stream shows on up to four devices at any one time.
