BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) — Dozens of streaming services are offering extended free trials while people are stuck at home during the coronavirus outbreak. While some come with a monthly fee after the trial period ends, others offer free services throughout the year.

Showtime has extended their free trial from seven to 30 days. The premium content channel offers a variety of television shows and movies. Once the free month expires, Showtime charges $11 per month for its subscription service.

For people interested in art-house and festival films, Filmatique also has a 30 day free trial. The service releases one new film every week, according to its website. After the trial period, the service costs $5 per month.

CBS All Access has a 30 day free promotion running with the code, “ALL.” The service normally costs $6 per month with limited ads, and $10 for the ad-free version.

A variety of free streaming services continue to offer content at no cost, while people across the U.S. are ordered to stay-at-home. These include the Roku Channel, IMBDtv, Hoopla, Plex and Kanopy, to name a few.
