Frequently Asked Questions About Sundance Now
How Much Does Sundance Now cost?
A Sundance Now subscription has two payment options after the free trial period expires:
- It will cost $6.99 per month for those who want to make monthly payments
- If you choose to pay for the full year, you’ll pay $59.99 or the equivalent of $4.99/month
Besides offering a discount for paying annually, there are no discounts on the actual video service right now, but if you set yourself a Deal Alert, we’ll let you know as new promotional offers become available. At one point, there was an offer for 60 days free through Groupon and LivingSocial, but that was back in 2018, so those who don’t want to give up the benefit of being a new customer can feel safe that the month long free trial is a pretty good offer. You can also keep an eye on the aforementioned Sundance Now coupons page.
How Do I Watch Sundance Now?
Those in the United States and Canada can sign up for a Sundance Now Membership here. When you first land on the page, the only offer for a free trial will appear to be the default seven days free trial period, but don’t let that scare you off. You’ll have the opportunity to verify your promo code is working on the same page it asks you to enter your payment information, thereby ensuring you don’t get stuck with the shorter free trial.

Is Sundance Now the Same as Sundance TV?
Sundance Now is not the same as Sundance TV. It’s an on-demand service that can be best described as complementary to the Sundance TV channel, which you can watch via a cable subscription or through a TV streaming platform like Youtube TV, Philo TV, or AT&T TV NOW. The two do not share the same catalog — a good example of this being that Sundance Now does not currently offer any of the original video content or exclusive series offered by Sundance TV.
How Do I Cancel My Sundance Now Free Trial?
