Just Before Hamilton, Disney+ Free Trials Are Seemingly No Longer Offered In The US

Hamilton, the award-winning musical which is getting a film adaptation, will hit the streaming service on July 3.


It seems that free trials of Disney+ are no longer being offered to new subscribers of the streaming service in the US, according to French pop culture site Numerama.

Previously, new Disney+ subscribers were given a free seven-day trial if they signed up for the service. After the trial ended, they would be charged the usual $6.99 monthly subscription free. Now, however, it seems that new US subscribers are taken directly to the payment screen after signing up for the service.

Disney didn't explicitly say that it will no longer offer free trials to new Disney+ subscribers. In a statement to The Verge, a Disney+ spokesperson said that "the service was set at an attractive price-to-value proposition that we believe delivers a compelling entertainment offering on its own."

This comes just as Hamilton was about to premiere on the streaming service on July 3. Back in February, Disney announced that it was producing a silver-screen adaptation of the award-winning musical, with a release date scheduled for sometime in October 2021. The company said that pushing Hamilton up by 15 months was in response to "the world turning upside down."
