Fern Siegel

Self-isolation is the new normal — and streaming helps to entertain and distract us as we quarantine and cope with the COVID-19 outbreak. To make it easier to sample streaming options The Streamable compiled a nifty list of 30- and 90-day free trials, as well as some services offering their content for free for a limited time.

Hulu and Quibi are offering 30- and 90-day free trials, respectively, HBO and Apple TV+ are giving free access to select shows and Amazon Prime Video is providing kids programming free of charge.

In addition, there are free and ad-supported services available, such as Pluto TV, IMDb TV and Tubi.
