They’re still offered by a number of streaming subscription services, including the following.
Acorn TV: Fans of British TV fare can get a seven-day free trial before paying $6 a month, or $60 a year, for the service.
Apple TV+: Apple’s subscription service has a seven-day free trial before its $5-a-month subscription kicks in.
BritBox: Like Acorn TV, BritBox caters to fans of British TV. And like that service, it offers a seven-day free trial before you have to pay for $7-a-month, or $70-a-year, subscription.
Discovery+: This new service, which features content from Discovery properties such as HGTV and TLC plus several new original shows, currently has a seven-day free trial. After that, it costs either $5 month with ads or $7 a month without.
FuboTV: This sports-centric cable-replacement service has a seven-day free trial. After that, plans start at $65 a month for more than 120 channels.
Hulu: Hulu’s 30-day free trial is among the longest; after that, you’ll pay either $6 a month (or $60 a year) for the ad-supported service or $12 a month for the ad-free version.
Hulu + Live TV: This cable-style live TV service offers a free seven-day trial for new and eligible returning subscribers. After that, it costs $65 a month for about 85 broadcast and cable channels.
Paramount+: Right now this service, which has replaced ViacomCBS’ CBS All Access, has a very generous 30-day free trial. But it’s only good until March 31, so we’ll have to see if it’s continued or altered after that. Plans start at $6 a month.
Peacock Premium and Premium Plus: You can get the basic Peacock service free, and there’s a seven-day free trial for both the $5-a-month ad-supported Premium service and the $10-a-month ad-free version. Both provide access to all of Peacock’s content, including original series you don’t get with the free version. Premium Plus also lets you watch certain shows on a mobile device.
Philo: This cable-replacement service offers more than 60 cable-style channels, but no local networks, for just $20 a month. It has a seven-day free trial.
YouTube TV: The cable-replacement service offers free trials, typically from seven to 14 days, provided you haven’t previously been a subscriber or participated in a free trial. After the trial period, the service costs $65 a month.
