Xbox Game Pass subscribers will get a free trial of Disney Plus
This week, the Xbox team confirmed that Game pass subscribers will have free access to Disney Plus. And just in case you were wondering, maybe now is a great time to take up Xbox’s offer.
There are of course a few caveats to the whole matter. As is generally the case with most promotions. Keep that in mind in case you are eager to start streaming content through Disney Plus at no cost.
The news of this new promotion comes straight from Xbox Game Pass Official Twitter June 8 via Technical radar who spotted a teaser for the promotion on June 7. In the teaser, the teams say they were ready to make a “big flashy video to announce the new advantage”. And that instead, he “decided to go with something more … low-key”. The word low-key used refers to the new MCU show on Disney Plus starring Loki, the Asgardian god of mischief.
The Loki show also just aired its first episode on June 9. And with two more MCU shows having completed their first (and possibly only) season, now is a good time to get a Disney Plus subscription.
At first we were going to make this big flashy video to tease the next Xbox Game Pass Ultimate Perk but in the end we decided to go with something a little more… Lowkey

Disney Plus trial requires Xbox Game Pass Ultimate membership
Xbox Game Pass is available in a few different variations, but only one of them has access to this new perk.
You will need to subscribe to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate if you want to participate in the Disney Plus free trial. Plus, you can’t already be a Disney Plus subscriber. So if you already have access to it, it won’t apply to you. And you won’t just get a free month.
Xbox Game Pass Ultimate costs $ 14.99 per month, compared to the $ 9.99 you pay for the other two versions, which are for console and PC respectively.
Another notable detail is that the trial is only valid for one month free. So you won’t have free access forever as part of Xbox Game Pass. Which is a shame, because it would be a garish affair.
