T-Mobile customers get Quibi free starting April 6


Many T-Mobile customers already get Netflix included free with their plan, and now they’re going to get Quibi, too.

T-Mo confirmed today that when Quibi launches on April 6th, T-Mo customers on a Magenta or T-Mobile One family plan will get access to the new video streaming service for free. Just sign up on mytmobile.com or the T-Mobile app before July 7th to get Quibi added to your plan.

To qualify for this offer, you’ll need 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.

When you sign up for this offer, you’ll get the $4.99 ad-supported tier for free. Quibi will also sell a $7.99 ad-free version of its service.┬áT-Mobile tells me that customers are not able to upgrade to the ad-free version and pay the difference.

One other thing to keep in mind about this deal is that customers will get both Quibi and Netflix free, but only for one year. After your one year of free Quibi and Netflix, you’ll need to choose one to continue receiving for free.

Quibi is a brand new video streaming service focused on quick bites of content. Its shows will be 10 minutes or less and will include movies shown in chapters, episodic shows, and new programs. There will be new episodes added to the service every day, with shows from names like Chrissy Teigen, Jennifer Lopez, Will Forte, BBC News, and 60 Minutes.

Another major feature of Quibi is called Turnstyle. With it, you can switch your phone between portrait and landscape mode at any time to get a different point of view.

Are you going to try Quibi when it launches next week?

    Didnt Verizon try something similar a few years ago?

    • UniBroW

      Verizon G090, this should be just as popular if not less so

    • Brandon Robinson

      Yes and Tmobile shitted on em for it, Quibi looks even less appealing than Go90

  • timmyjoe42

    Phooey, not for the old simple choice plans? Oh well. I’m saving some big bucks.

  • steveb944

    They must expect/hope for demand considering Simple Choice is out.

    Basically you have to be on T-mobile’s most expensive plan (cheaper grandfather plans are excluded). Why should people on cheaper plans have to pay more for these small perks.

    • marque2

      What – that doesn’t make any sense. How are you paying more?

      What plan are you on?

      Also doesn’t it make more sense to keep people on the top tier plan happy?

  • James Symmonds

    That’s like using a chunk of concrete as a fishing lure. :P

  • Willie D

    1 year only then pick between Netflix or Quibi? Change my plan to get it? NO THANKS.

  • dcmanryan

    Hard to imagine anyone would pick Quibi over Netflix after the first year.

  • Android_God

    Yeah, I’m not spending $30 per month more just to get these 2 services free. It makes zero sense

  • Android_God

    What dumb fucking name for a service…Quibi… And d-list celebrities to boot!

  • So, I can watch 60 minutes but only 10 minutes at a time?? WTF?

    • argenys

      I think it’s a short thing not something long cut up into short clips.

  • Charmed79

    I am glad that we are not the only ones thinking this is dumb lol Watch a movie, but only 7-10 mins at a time, um no lol

    • argenys

      I think the point is that it’s short not that it’s normal content cut up into shorter clips

      • David D

        “will include movies shown in chapters” sounds like it will be normal sized movies and shows, but only get to watch 10 mins at a time.

    For the ADD crowd who record video in portrait.
