The Black Friday sale from the year before included a triple feature of incredible savings. Black Friday was filled with great prices on electronics like AirPods, televisions, and video game systems, but the streaming services—specifically Hulu and HBO Max—were the big winners.
That, however, seemed very 2022. Only a few months remain till the return of Black Friday on November 24, 2023. With the experience of last year’s Amazon Prime Day under our belts, we’ve got a better idea of what to expect from this year’s sale event, and we’ve laid out all our predictions for saving money in this post.
Since consumers are increasingly looking for ways to cut costs, we’ve created this guide to subscription services to help you save money on the many options out there. Our predictions for the greatest Black Friday streaming deals will help you decide which services are worth signing up for immediately and which can wait until after the holiday.
We anticipate another visit from Hulu, as it has often provided us with discounts of up to 80% off its monthly rates over the past few years. The same could be said for HBO Max, which is now referred to simply as “Max,” however the finalization of its merger with Discovery Plus may result in a different discount on the price of HBO Max, if we get one at all.
If not, perhaps the Channel discounts on Amazon Prime Video will save us. The only time we’ve seen Max on sale is during Amazon Prime Day in July, when you can get two months of the service for half off when you sign up for Amazon Prime. Its other Channels, including as AMC Plus, STARZ, Britbox, and others, also offered discounts to customers in the US and the UK.
The Paramount Plus free trial is frequently extended, and promotional coupons for the service can be found on the company’s website at any time of year. We expect more hoopla (meaning discounts) on the already exceptional value bundle now that Showtime’s library is included in the more expensive Premium Paramount Plus plan.
Below, you’ll find our in-depth analysis of the upcoming Black Friday streaming bargains in 2023, including our predictions for the top deals to expect in late November.

What Black Friday streaming deals do we expect in 2023?
It’s true that streaming providers aren’t always the most generous with discounts, especially since that many of them have done away with free trials. Black Friday is almost certainly the time when some of our favorite platforms decide to be generous to our wallets because Christmas is coming up.
Some streaming providers in 2022 began advertising their Black Friday discounts in the weeks leading up to the holiday, while others waited until the week of the event to begin advertising. We anticipate that Hulu will once again deliver on its massive price cut sometime in the middle to late stages of November. We don’t know if we’ll receive another great HBO Max offer like we did last year now that Warner Bros. and Discovery Plus have merged.
We are less confident that Disney Plus will have a special Black Friday deal. The best deals for Disney Plus are saved for the annual Disney Plus Day celebrations, when new and returning users may get their first month for just $1.99.
However, depending on the consumer landscape in the second half of 2023, we may see a greater push from the likes of Disney and other platforms despite the fact that streaming platforms face an even tougher market with customers being more strategic about what they subscribe to and subscriber counts fluctuating.
