T-Mobile announced today that it is giving subscribers of its most expensive mobile plan a free subscription to AppleTV+, which normally costs $60 a year. Those who are subscribed to the Magenta Max plan, which costs $85 a month for a single line, will get Apple’s streaming service for free. If you’re on T-Mobile’s Magenta plan, which costs $70 a month for one line, you’ll get six months of Apple TV+ for free.
The benefit becomes effective on August 31, 2022.
There is a slight catch, of course. The full deal is only good for the first year. After that, you’ll be charged $5 a month for Apple TV Plus, just like everyone else.
If you already have an Apple TV+ subscription, you can still take advantage of this offer. T-Mobile says that once you redeem this benefit, the clock starts ticking. Once the year of free service is up, Apple billing will start working again.
In other words, there aren’t many reasons not to take advantage of this.
“Magenta MAX customers love streaming. So of course we’re giving them more of what they love, because that’s just what the Un-carrier does,” said T-Mobile CEO Mike Sievert.in a press release. “It’s moves like this, giving customers more without asking for more, that have made T-Mobile the value leader in wireless. Now, with America’s most awarded 5G network, T-Mobile customers don’t have to choose between the best value and a great network.”
This isn’t the only streaming benefit that top T-Mobile customers have at their disposal. The carrier also foots the bill for a Netflix Basic ($10 a month for standard definition on a single device) or Netflix Standard ($15.50 for HD on two devices) plan for free as part of the “Netflix on Us” bonus. .
