How Infinity + works

Infinity + prices

Let's start with one of the most important questions: how much does Infinity + cost? The monthly plan of Infinity + is the one from 7,99 euro / month, which includes the viewing of all the contents present in the catalog of the service (films, TV series, cartoons, documentaries, television shows and football with 121 matches out of 137 of the UEFA Champions League). Regarding football, you should know that you can also watch the free contents of Mediaset Infinity, so all the matches of the City cup.

Exceptions are only the first-run films, those just arrived on the home video market, which are not included in the price and must be rented separately (even if, on a weekly basis, some of them are included in the basic offer of Infinity for a few days, through the 'initiative Infinity premiere). Alternatively, it is possible to subscribe to the six-monthly plan (€ 39 every 6 months) or the annual plan (€ 69 / year).

New subscribers to Infinity + can take advantage of 7 free trial days of the service, non-binding and without obligation of renewal. The supported payment methods are credit card, account Amazon Pay e PayPal. In addition, the Infinity Pass prepaid cards, through which it is possible to take advantage of one or more months of subscription by typing a simple code on the site, therefore without using a credit card or PayPal.

Passes can be purchased on Amazon and in many physical electronics stores with prices ranging from € 39 to € 79 depending on the months of activation. However, periodically some limited promotions may vary the viewing period or the price of Infinity Pass+.

A very important thing to specify is that the Infinity Passes are cumulative: in fact, by accessing the section Manage Account> Subscription Details of Infinity and clicking on Enter new Pass, you can add a new code and extend your subscription to the service without using your card or PayPal.
