Black Friday deals are in full swing, and digital streaming services have joined the analog army of holiday sales you'll find online. Monthly subscriptions for on-demand entertainment seem to be getting more expensive every year, but good news: now is the perfect time to save a few bucks before collapsing into your couch with fellow football fanatics — and a drunk uncle or two.

Still, finding the right streaming service to fit your family's personal preferences is a matter of deciding which content you'd like access to; each platform has different partnerships with different production studios, making each service unique in terms of available movies, TV shows, and live sporting events. (For example, the Game of Thrones franchise is exclusive to HBO, as is Ted Lasso to Apple TV.)

Our favorite Black Friday streaming deal might be the Disney Plus, ESPN+ and Hulu bundle, which is just $13.99 a month until December 8 (opens in new tab). The price of entry gives you everything one of the best streaming services has to offer, with more movies, TV shows, and live sporting events added each month. That includes edge-of-your-seat content from from the NBA, NHL, UFC, and more.
