Disney Plus offers for August 2022: latest deals and how to get Disney Plus free (2022)

From The Mandalorian to Loki — the platform offers a huge range of content to stream, plus older favourites like Modern Family, The Walking Dead and How I Met Your Mother. The best Disney Plus shows are diverse and cover a wide variety of themes and genres.

There used to be a Disney+ free trial on offer for new subscribers in the UK, from Disney itself, but that sadly ended after a couple of months in mid-2020. Don't worry, though, there are still some great bundles and offers to snap up.

There's a method to get 12 months for free if you're looking to get a new smartphone, a way to grab a free six months of Disney+ with an O2 SIM, and even the chance to bag a free Disney+ subscription on your existing Samsung smartphone.

Here's everything you need to know on how to grab a discounted Disney Plus subscription for your streaming device or smart TV.

Sign up for Disney Plus for £7.99 a month or £79.90 a year

Six months' free Disney+ with an O2 SIM

Disney Plus offers for August 2022: latest deals and how to get Disney Plus free (3)

What's the deal: If you're upgrading an O2 SIM, or switching to O2 from another network, then you can bag up to six months of Disney+ for free as part of your new deal.

Depending on the plan you choose and how much it costs per month, you can select additional 'Plus' benefits from O2. A Disney+ subscription is one of those available at the moment.

For example, if you commit to a 24-month plan, paying £15 per month for 30GB of data, you can get six months of Disney+ for free.

Why we chose it: If you're on the lookout for a sim or you're an O2 customer renewing, this is an easy way to bag yourself some free Disney+. We recommend weighing up how much data you'll actually use to make sure you're still getting the best value.

Shop SIM-only plans on O2

Rivals Vodafone offer similar streaming bundles with some of their devices and plans, but these feature Spotify, YouTube Premium and Amazon Prime Video, rather than Disney+.

Save £2 on Disney+ each month with O2 Priority

Disney Plus offers for August 2022: latest deals and how to get Disney Plus free (4)

What's the deal: We've already mentioned one Disney+ deal from O2, but this one helps out those of you who are existing O2 customers. Add Disney+ to your plan and get it for £2 less.

Why we chose it: If you're an existing O2 customer, this is a great way to save on a Disney+ subscription. While £2 might not seem like a huge saving, the subscription isn't too expensive in the first place, so it's a saving worth making.

Sign up to Disney+ to claim the offer. Or, if you're already a Disney+ user, simply add it as an 'Extra' on your plan. You'll be able to claim £2 off each month for six months.

What's the deal: Tesco Clubcard holders can use £6 in Clubcard vouchers to purchase three months of Disney+. That's just £2 per month instead of the usual £7.99 per month.

Why we chose it: This is a fantastically low price for three months of Disney+ and will no doubt be popular with Tesco Clubcard users.

Disney+ bundles

Disney Plus offers for August 2022: latest deals and how to get Disney Plus free (8)

Bad news. Unfortunately, when it comes to Disney+ bundles, the UK market is poorly served.

US customers can pay $13.99 a month for an expanded subscription which also includes ESPN+ and Hulu ($13.99 with adverts or $19.99 without).

This isn't available in the UK right now, but we wouldn't be surprised to see some sort of similar bundle land soon. We'll update this page with the latest offerings when it does.

Is Disney+ free with Amazon Prime Video UK?

This is a commonly asked question and unfortunately, the answer is no.

Previously, Amazon has offered US customers six months of Disney+ if they signed up for Amazon Music Unlimited.

However, if you have an Amazon Prime Video subscription – or are considering one – and want to watch Disney content, there are some great Disney films on there. The likes of Black Widow, Luca, Turning Red, The Little Mermaid and Lilo & Stitch are all available to buy or rent via Amazon Prime Video.
