T-Mobile announces free Hulu offer

Written by |

Talk about piling on…

In December 2016, T-Mobile announced it would give AT&T customers one free year of DirecTV Now when they activated two lines and brought their number to T-Mobile ONE.

Now they’re getting ready to sweeten the pot again for those customers who took them up on that offer!

T-Mobile offers AT&T refugees a free year of Hulu — in addition to the free year of DirecTV Now they’re already getting!

Back in late 2016, DirecTV Now launched with a lot of ballyhoo thanks to an amazing initial price point — $35 a month for 100+ channels.

But customers of AT&T’s new streaming service quickly became disenchanted thanks to a lot of technical snafus that made it hard to watch the service. They’re especially upset if they got in after the introductory offer ended and are now paying $60 for those same channels!

Even Clark himself — ever the optimist and always an ardent early adopter of new technologies — had to concede that the reality of DirecTV Now was not as great as the initial hype made it sound.

“It’s not quite there,” the consumer champ has said. “The picture is choppy, a lot of times it’s a fuzzy picture, and there’s no DVR with it.”

Rubbing salt in AT&T’s wounds

Now T-Mobile‘s latest offer really rubs salt in AT&T’s wounds because it plays into the second wave of buzz about how bad DirecTV Now actually is.

T-Mobile is offering those same AT&T refugees who left Ma Bell for the Un-carrier a free year of Hulu in addition to the year of DirecTV Now they’re already enjoying — or not enjoying, as the case may be!


Hulu’s basic service costs $8 a month, so that’s a savings of almost $100 this year for eligible customers.

If you are eligibile, look for a notification from T-Mobile in the coming weeks with a unique code good for your free year of Hulu Limited Commercials service.

“It turns out DirecTV Now is barely watchable, but we’ve got our customers’ backs! So, every former AT&T customer who took us up on our offer now gets a free year of Hulu on us ‘ and they get to enjoy it on a faster, more advanced network with unlimited data!” John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile, said in a press release. “Even I can’t believe AT&T spent $67 billion on DirecTV and still couldn’t roll out a streaming service that worked!”

Clearly, the battle of the wireless carriers rages on and it’s getting ugly for them — but great for you and your wallet!
