This week the Xbox team confirmed that Game Pass subscribers will get free access to Disney Plus. And just in case you were wondering, now may be the perfect time take Xbox up on its offer.
There are of course some caveats to the whole deal. As is usually the case with most promotions. Keep this in mind going forward just in case you’re excited to start streaming content through Disney Plus at no charge.
The news of this new promotion comes straight from the Xbox Game Pass official Twitter on June 8, via Tech Radar who spotted a tease for the promotion back on June 7. In the tease, the teams says it was prepared to make a “big flashy video to announce the new perk.” And that instead, it “decided to go with something more….. lowkey.” The lowkey word use being a reference to the new MCU show on Disney Plus featuring Loki, the Asgardian God of Mischief.
The show Loki also just aired its first episode on June 9. And with two other MCU shows having wrapped up their first (and possibly only) season, it’s a good time to be a Disney Plus subscriber.
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… LowkeyAdvertisement

The Disney Plus trial requires a subscription to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate
Xbox Game Pass is available in a few different variations, but only one of them gets access to this new perk.
You’ll need to subscribe to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate if you want to partake in the free Disney Plus trial. What’s more is that you can’t already be a subscriber of Disney Plus. So if you already have access, this won’t apply to you. And you won’t simply get a free month.
Xbox Game Pass Ultimate costs $14.99 a 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 for one free month. So you won’t get access at no cost forever as part of Xbox Game Pass. Which is too bad, because that would be a screaming deal.
