Amazon has rolled out a new promotion that bundles its streaming music service Amazon Music with the blockbuster streaming television service Disney Plus.

For a limited time, new Amazon Music subscribers can grab six months of Disney Plus for free when they sign up for Amazon Music using this link.

Amazon Music offers on-demand access to more than 75 million songs for $8 a month when coupled with a membership to Amazon Prime, or $10 a month as a standalone subscription. Streamers can listen to as many tracks or albums as they want, with unlimited skips and no commercial interruptions.

Amazon Music is supported across a number of devices, including Apple and Android-powered smartphones and tablets, desktop and laptop computers, smart TV sets and Amazon’s line of Echo-brand smart speakers and displays.

Disney Plus includes access to hundreds of movies and TV shows from Walt Disney Studios, the Disney Channel, National Geographic, Pixar and the Marvel and Star Wars franchises. It is also the only way to watch every season of the classic animated sitcom “The Simpsons” as well as Disney Plus Originals like “Star Wars: The Mandalorian” and “WandaVision.”

Disney Plus can be streamed through all popular smartphones and tablets, along with streaming TV devices like the Amazon Fire TV Stick.

While promotional bundles like these are typically limited to new subscribers, Amazon is offering current Amazon Music customers access to a similar Disney Plus promotion: Current customers who use this link can grab three free months of Disney Plus.

Both promotional deals are open to new Disney Plus subscribers only. Current Disney Plus customers are not eligible to receive either promotional offer, though existing Disney Plus subscribers can take advantage of the offer by canceling their existing account and starting a new one through the link.

After the promotional period, customers will be billed $8 a month for Disney Plus. Each subscription automatically renews unless customers explicitly cancel them before the promotional period ends; Amazon Music and Disney Plus must be canceled separately.

Before the promotional period ends, Amazon says customers can upgrade their Disney Plus subscription to include Hulu and ESPN Plus at a discounted rate, with their promotional rate credited toward their subscription. Currently, the Disney Plus bundle with Hulu and ESPN Plus costs $14 a month (or $20 a month if customers want the ad-free version of Hulu).
