Great Courses Plus Now Offers a 30-Day Free Trial: 7,000 Video Lectures Covering Philosophy, Photography & More


Last summer, 1500 Open Culture readers got a chance to take part in a free beta test of The Great Courses Plus--a new video subscription service that lets you watch free courses (about 7,000 lectures in total) across a wide range of subjects, everything from History, Philosophy, Literature, and Economics, to Math, Science, Professional Development, Cooking, and Photography. Like Netflix, The Great Courses Plus lets you stream material on your TV, tablet, laptop and smart phone, with the help of apps designed for Apple, Google Play, Kindle Fire, and Roku. Interested in trying out this service? You can now sign up for a 30-day free trial and see what you think. If it's not your thing, you can cancel before the 30 days are up.

I've been a fan and consumer of The Great Courses products for more than 15 years. So I have no problem giving their service a plug. And if you eventually become a Great Courses Plus subscriber, it will help support Open Culture--something we'll certainly appreciate.

    The courses look amazing, but why do I have to select a payment plan and provide my billing information when I want to try out their services?

    If it’s a “FREE trial”, it should be free and IF I decide it’s worth it, THEN I would decide whether to chose a monthly or annual subscription.

    But providing my billing information beforehand with the promise I can cancel it before it runs out makes me very, very skeptical. That’s something I usually associate with bait-and-switch services.

    I currently have six Great Courses under weigh. More stimulating than most movies.
