We all know signing up for a streaming service can get costly, particularly if you have more than one. So to convince us that Disney+ is the one you should spend your money on, the folks at Disney are slinging a $2 bargain.

Here’s how you can get in on this crazy cheap Disney+ subscription deal.

How can you get Disney+’s cheap subscription deal?

Disney’s latest deal is happening in honour of Disney+ Day. The event falls on Friday, November 12, and marks the second anniversary of the streaming service.

To bring even more subscribers into the Disney+ fold, the streamer is running a week-long promotion where new and eligible returning customers can get one month of Disney+ for $1.99.

From today through to November 15, 2021, at 6:59 p.m. AEDT, any new subscribers to Disney+ will get their first month for $2 instead of the usual $11.99 per month. After the first month, users will be charged the standard price.

You can sign up for this limited time Disney+ deal here.

Those who are already regular subscribers of Disney+ can’t take advantage of this cheap subscription deal but the house of mouse has other things planned for us.
