5 Best Streaming Services with Military Discounts

Active-duty military and veterans will be happy to know that military discounts are offered by a number of streaming platforms. As of this writing, the markdowns range from 10% (namely, Hulu with Ads) to a whopping 40% (Discovery+). Showtime, home of the occasional prestige TV, even shaves $2 off their regular monthly price, while Fubo TV, home of the best sports channels in the area, shaves off $10, but only for the first two months. 

The offers vary in price deduction and sharing plans (another feather in its cap: Discovery+ allows you to share the discount with family members), but in most cases, you will need your GovX ID to prove your eligibility. If you already have that settled, then you can sit back, relax, and enjoy all the shows and movies the streaming world has to offer.
