Black Friday streaming deals may be winding up, but fear not — we're also tracking Cyber Monday deals, and it just so happens that many of the best Cyber Monday streaming deals on our radar also offer you the chance to save on a variety of top streaming services.

In the meantime, you can still take advantage of the remaining Black Friday savings on both services and streaming devices. The deals that remain are still fantastic, not only because of the discounts, but because some of the services are about to raise their prices. Getting your subscription squared away with a Black Friday deal could end up saving you a lot of money over the coming year.

While one of our favorite Rokus and the excellent HD Chromecast are on sale, one of our favorite Black Friday streaming deals is from HBO Max. New and eligible subscribers can now get HBO Max for $1.99 per month (opens in new tab) for the first three months, though we should note this is only for the ad-supported HBO Max (which normally costs $9.99 per month)

The Hulu Black Friday deal is also a steal, where you can get Hulu for $1.99 per month (opens in new tab) for a whole year, saving you up to $6 per month or $72 total. Find you don't want Hulu after the first month? Don't worry, this deal doesn't lock you into a year-long plan and you can pay month to month.

Best streaming device deals

Roku Streaming Stick 4K: was $49 now $24 @ Amazon (opens in new tab)

Roku Streaming Stick 4K: was $49 now $24 @ Amazon (opens in new tab)
The latest version of Roku's popular streaming stick is our pick for the best streaming device you can buy, and that was before it dropped to a new low price. The Roku 4K offers access to all the streaming services you need via clean interface. Plus, Dolby Vision ensures solid picture quality to a strong standard, and the new long-range Wi-Fi receiver helps you ditch buffering issues.

Chromecast with Google TV (HD): was $29 now $19 @ Best Buy (opens in new tab)

Chromecast with Google TV (HD): was $29 now $19 @ Best Buy (opens in new tab)
The best HD streaming device, the Chromecast with Google TV offers an intiutive interface and provides easy access to all of the best streaming services, complete with HDR support. It also offers personal recommendations and lets you find stuff to watch via voice using the Google Assistant button.

Chromecast with Google TV (4K): was $50 now $40 @ Amazon (opens in new tab)

While the HBO Max Black Friday deal and Hulu Black Friday deal are the top two, we love the Peacock Black Friday deal, which chops it down by $4 to just 99 cents per month. And for the latter, check out the 7 best movies to watch with Peacock's $1 Black Friday deal.

Our latest deal we've added to this list is Philo's Black Friday deal, which provides a $20 discount for the first month of the live TV streaming service. Philo, usually $25 per month, is already the most affordable way to watch Yellowstone online. This just makes it easier — plus there's a 7-day free trial. 

Then there's the Disney Plus deal, which is $40 off, but not against its current price — but against its upcoming price change. The Disney Plus price hike will knock a year of ad-free Disney Plus up from $79 to $119, and this is a great way to avoid it. That price offers savings for anyone who thinks they'll have Disney Plus for at least 8 months, as that many months of ad-free Disney Plus (following its Dec. 8 price hike) costs $87.92. Not subscribed to Disney Plus and Hulu? Well, the above $5 Disney Plus and Hulu Black Friday deal may be the perfect way to get you back.

HBO Max doesn't have an announced price hike coming soon, but its summer 2023 merger with Discovery Plus looks like it will raise the rates.

Most of these deals we should note are for new and/or eligible subscribers. We bet, though, some ineligible subscribers will probably find a way to get around those barriers. A friend told me recently he can get deals by making new accounts. It's unclear how that would work here.

We rank HBO Max as the best streaming service, with Hulu and Disney Plus not far behind, and it's been there for quite some time. HBO Max has the best assortment of originals and from-the-theaters films, so check out our guides to the best HBO Max movies and best HBO Max shows for more details.

We love Hulu for its quality exclusive originals, such as The Bear — one of the best shows of 2022. We've also rounded up the best movies on Hulu and best shows on Hulu, to keep you entertained through to next Black Friday.

Oh, and Paramount Plus is going to get a lot of attention next month, as Top Gun: Maverick hits Paramount Plus. That said, the Paramount Plus 50% off discount is more about annual savings, which might be best for cord-cutters who want live news and sports from CBS.
