Quibi launches today and T-Mobile customers get one year free


Quibi is launching today, and as we learned last week, T-Mobile customers get it for free.

T-Mobile customers on select family plans can get a free year of Quibi service. To be eligible, you’ll need to have two or more voice lines at standard rates on a Magenta or T-Mobile One plan with taxes and fees included. First Responder, Military, and Magenta Plus 55 plans are also eligible, as are small business customers with up to 12 lines.

You can sign up for your free year of Quibi anytime between now and July 7th. Just go to the My T-Mobile website or use the T-Mobile app for Android or iOS. You can get the Quibi app for Android and for iPhone.

T-Mo customers get free access to the $4.99 ad-supported tier of Quibi for one year. Quibi also offers a $7.99 per month ad-free tier, but T-Mo has told me that customers are not able to select that tier and pay the difference.

This Quibi on Us offer is available in addition to the Netflix on Us promo that T-Mobile has been offering for a while now. After your first year of free Quibi, though, you must choose one streaming service to continue getting for free.

Quibi is a service that offers “quick bites” of content that are all 10 minutes or less. That includes movies that are served up in 7 to 10 minute chapters, original shows, and news and sports content that fill you in on the world’s happenings in 5 to 6 minute chunks.

Some of the shows available from Quibi include Survive with Sophie Turner, Punk’d hosted by Chance the Rapper, and Chrissy’s Court with Chrissy Teigen, plus shows like Around the World by BBC News and The Replay by ESPN. Quibi says that it’ll release more than 25 new episodes ever day and that it’s planning to launch 175 new original shows and 8,500 pieces of content in its first year.

When you’re watching Quibi shows on your phone, you can take advantage of Turnstyle, another one of its major features. With Turnstyle, you can rotate your phone from landscape to portrait at any time and still watch your show in full screen.

Quibi is celebrating its launch by offering a free 90-day trial to anyone that signs up in the month of April, but with T-Mo’s deal, eligible customers get access for a year so they can get a fuller experience of Quibi as the service grows and launches new shows and episodes.

If you’re eligible for the Quibi on Us offer, let us know what you think of the new streaming service once you’ve signed up!

    So the 2 lines for 100 does not apply for this either. Missed out on Netflix, Quibi and all other promotions from being on this plan.

    • Ninos Biram

      I have three lines on the Unlimited 55+, I don’t think I’m able to add this on either.. couldn’t add Netflix I’m sure I’m not eligible for this as well.

      Are you a liberal? If so,then you’re missing out. That’s the only reason why you’d want quibi.
      I have the same plan as you btw, almost 5 yrs now I’m guessing

  • Jodath79

    I have a T-Mobile One plan and I went to the My T-Mobile site and added it to my plan and a pop-up box said that they will send me a text message when my Quibi account is ready for setup. That was over 5 hours ago and I never received the text.

  • Jodath79

    Do you have one of the plans mentioned to be eligible for the service?

    • Ninos Biram

      I got Unlimited 55+ 2 lines for $60.. they don’t have that plan and it’s not eligible I guess

      • the martian ambassador

        I’m on the same plan ..the original 55+, and I’m seeing no option to add Quibi. The only 55+ plan that qualifies for free Quibi is the Magenta Plus Unlimited 55, which is the premium plan $45/mo/line that includes Netflix and 20GB of high speed mobile hotspot data. If you are on a plan with free Netflix, you probably are eligible for Quibi.
        Why would anyone choose Quibi (with commercials no less) over the free Netflix ?

  • Francisco Peña

    anything with Chrissy Teigen is a no.

  • Shakenbake

    IGN did a review of all the content,sadly to say it’s all woke, lefty garbage

    • Francisco Peña

      nooooooooooooooooo.. I’m shocked.. SHOCKED!!!! you are kidding right?

  • UniBroW

    I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t sign up for this if it was going to save me $5/month on my bill, much less for free.

  • ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

    Quibi content is garbage.

  • Francisco Peña

    i want free healthcare.. I want my school loans I paid refunded. Free housing would be cool too. In fact, I want more stimulus checks from the government. I want your dog too.
