T-Mobile is known for giving its subscribers some pretty great add-ons, such as Netflix for life, free Apple TV Plus, and of course, the various giveaways in from T-Mobile Tuesdays. Today, the carrier announced (via The Verge) that it is giving away one year of Paramount Plus to any T-Mobile or Sprint customer.
There are two “caveats” to the latest promotion, as you must be either subscribed to either a post-paid cellular plan or a home internet plan. The second is that this is for Paramount Plus Essential, the streaming services $4.99 per month tier featuring “limited commercial interruptions.” While this includes much of what Paramount Plus has to offer, including being able to stream NFL games, it does not include the live feed of your local CBS affiliate broadcast.
One thing that is a bit odd about this promotion is that when you create your new Paramount Plus account, you’ll still need to provide your credit card information. It appears as though instead of being able to just have the subscription added to your monthly cell phone bill, Paramount Plus will bill you directly after the one-year free promotion has expired.
Those who are already subscribed to the streaming service can follow the instructions on T-Mobile’s landing page to get everything switched over to this new promotion. T-Mobile and Sprint account holders can sign up starting on November 9th and will be provided with a coupon code to redeem the free year.
Additionally, the promotion page states that “Paramount Plus will not send a reminder alerting you of your upcoming offer expiring.” So you’ll want to add an event to your calendar to be properly reminded when the promotion is coming to a close, allowing you to decide whether you want to keep the streaming service or cancel it.
If you want to sign up, make sure you head over to the link below on November 9th and follow the instructions to get Paramount Plus for free.
