Xbox Game Pass Ultimate Subscribers Get Disney+ Perk

Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members can now access Disney+ for 30 days for free as part of their subscription, Microsoft says.

“Starting today, Ultimate members will be able to stream all of the great entertainment available with Disney+, including content from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, and National Geographic,” Microsoft’s Adam Harris announced. “From old favorites to the latest epic movies, series and Originals from the world’s best storytellers, including the new season of The Mandalorian, we’re excited to provide this trial as a Perk to our members.”

To be clear, this perk is only available to those new to Disney+; if you’re already a subscriber, you can’t get 30 days for free. After the free trial, Disney+ will cost $6.99 per month.

And this offer isn’t limited to Xbox Series X and Series S owners, it works on Xbox One as well. You can also access this perk from the Xbox app on Windows 10, Microsoft notes.

    <p><span style="color: rgb(0, 0, 0);">Who's the target customer for this offer?

Any Game Pass subscriber who has kids in the house likely already has Disney+. Adult gamers without kids are probably not all that interested in it. And given that Disney+ has offered a 30-day trial until the last few months, I'mbetting that anyone who wanted to give this service a whirl already has.</span></p>

        <blockquote><em><a href="#591820">In reply to winbookxl2:</a></em></blockquote><p>Okay, but you realize this is a free one-month, not free forever, right? And Disney+ was offering everybody a free one-month trial until a couple months ago, right?</p>

          <blockquote><em><a href="#591864">In reply to gregsedwards:</a></em></blockquote><p>It's worked on me. I was considering trying it in December when we have school holidays. Now it's a no-brainer for me to do so, and if it's good then I'll stay subscribed. </p><p>Good for Disney, and good for Microsoft to be seen to be offering some extra value. I'll take it</p>

    <p>My carrier in the UK, O2, gave me (and presumably a lot of other customers) 6 months of Disney+ for free. I’m surprised this offer is just 30 days to be honest.</p>
