Make Sure “Free Trial” Video Streaming Doesn’t Cost You

Let’s say you want to watch a TV series your friends have been raving about that’s only available from one streaming service. Naturally, it’s a service you don’t have and don’t want to sign up for on a long-term basis. If available, take advantage of a free trial to binge the series over a weekend. Or maybe your family is starting to get bored with the streaming services you’ve had for years, and wants to “test drive” a few others for the fun of it. Again, a free trial is the best route to take.

Keep in mind that to use these free trials, you’ll probably need to enter credit card information. Some streaming services will automatically renew after the trial period is over, so set a reminder for yourself to cancel before this date if you don’t plan to keep the service.
