If you're into Disney (or Pixar, Star Wars, Marvel, or any of the other properties Disney owns), you're not gonna find a much better streaming deal than Disney+: its base subscription costs all of eight bucks a month. But if you're still on the fence, Amazon's running a great promo for new subscribers — pay for one month of Amazon Music Unlimited, and you'll get up to six months of Disney+ for free.
If you're still subscribed to YouTube TV in spite of the repeated price hikes (remember when it cost $35/month?), Google has a small consolation prize for you. YouTube TV subscribers can currently get a 30-day trial of Cinemax for free, so long as it's redeemed before the end of the month.
A few days ago, Disney+ removed its free 7-day trial, possibly fearing that too many people would take advantage of it just to watch the highly anticipated exclusive Hamilton musical. But if you're a Chromebook owner and haven't signed up for Disney+ yet, you can look forward to the return of the free 3-month trial for the service, a deal Google initially only offered through February 2020.
Google finally opened Stadia to the public back in April, allowing anyone living in supported regions to try Stadia Pro for two months, free of charge. With June quickly approaching, any players who jumped onto the Stadia bandwagon on public launch day will soon be paying $9.99 a month for Google's cloud gaming service, unless they opt out. Here's how to cancel your subscription before your free trial of Stadia Pro expires.

If you've been on the fence about joining Stadia Pro and going full-bore on streaming video games, your opportunity for an extended test drive is whittling down. Google already announced that it will reduce free trials from 2 months down to one starting June 3, so now it's really time to use it or lose it.
If you've run out of stuff to watch on Netflix while you're "working" from home, you're in luck. Patrick Stewart — real-life Picard — has announced that CBS All Access is offering a free month of service for anyone who signs up by April 23 and uses promo code GIFT.
Disney+ is launching on November 12 in the US, but in a surprise move, the company is allowing residents of The Netherlands to sign up for a limited pilot phase starting today. It will be free to use there until it officially goes live in a couple of months. For now, the catalog appears to be limited, though there are some surprises. It's safe to assume that Disney will be adding more series and movies ahead of the full release.
In the market for a new wireless service provider? It just so happens that T-Mobile remains the only carrier in the United States to offer a try-before-you-buy "Test Drive" to see if the network is right for you. Now, it's changing its own game up with a revamp to the program, expanding its loaner length and switching out iPhones for hotspots.
Switching wireless providers only to find that you don't get your new carrier's signal in your living room is the pits. T-Mobile is helping residents of Boston, Massachusetts; Austin, Texas; and Atlanta, Georgia avoid that particular pickle by offering 30-day trials of its wireless service. Prospective customers in those three locales can request a portable Wi-Fi hotspot loaded up with a T-Mobile SIM that's theirs to use for up to a month or 30 gigabytes of data use.
