These days it seems like you have to sign up to a gajillion streaming platforms just to access a handful of your favorite shows and movies. Every studio and brand has its own streamer, and the cost of all those subscriptions adds up quickly.
Thankfully, some internet providers hook you up with free trials or even full subscriptions to streaming services when you sign up for a qualifying internet plan. That means you can save your doubloons while catching up on Succession or re-watching The Empire Strikes Back. Here’s a list of some sweet streaming perks you can get from internet providers when you get new Wi-Fi for your humble abode.
Nab a subscription to Max
Max is one of the hottest streaming services out there. It’s jam-packed with content from one of the best TV networks of all time plus movies and TV titles from a range of other WarnerMedia Entertainment brands.
Still, you’ve got to pay a pretty penny to gain access to The Sopranos, Sex and the City, Succession, and all that other good stuff—a subscription costs $14.99 per month, making it one of the pricier streaming options.
How to get it
You get a full subscription to Max when you sign up for AT&T’s Internet 1000 plan. If you can’t get AT&T fiber in your area, opt for a qualifying plan from Optimum to get a free Max trial that lasts anywhere from three to 12 months, depending on the plan.
Score Disney+ Premium (no ads) for 1 year
Disney+ is the one-stop shop to watch all the Disney, Pixar, Marvel, and Star Wars content you could ever ask for. Also, it has The Simpsons! Disney+ has a multitude of tiers that allow you to choose to watch with or without ads. Verizon is offering Disney+ Premium (no ads), normally $140 if you pay annually, for free for one year.
How to get it
Sign up for Verizon’s 2 gig internet plan to get access to Disney+ Premium for a year. For six-months free, sign up for a 1 gig internet plan. You can also get a deal on the Disney Bundle Trio, which bundles Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+ with select Verizon mobile plans for $10 a month.
Party on with Paramount+ Essential
Paramount+ is one of the newer kids on the streaming block, having launched under this name in March 2021. It comes with CBS shows alongside movies and other titles released under the Paramount Media Networks umbrella. If you want to revisit the surrealist small-town mysteries of Twin Peaks or admire Hollywood blockbusters like Titanic and Forrest Gump, it’s worth checking out.
How to get it
T-Mobile Home Internet—T-Mobile’s relatively new, cellular-based home internet service—comes with a free, yearlong trial of Paramount+ Essential. The streamer costs $5.99 per month, so that’s a nice savings.
Get a taste of Peacock Premium
Taking its name from NBC’s multicolored avian logo, Peacock is a streaming service that gives you access to content from NBCUniversal studios and related brands. It’s the only platform as of late where you can binge-watch old episodes of The Office, making it highly bingeable.
While there’s two packages to choose from, Peacock Premium Monthly and Peacock Premium Plus. You access the platform’s full library—including Brooklyn Nine-Nine and all 20 seasons of Keeping Up with the Kardashians—for just $5.99 or $11.99 per month.
How to get it
You can get a free, 90-day trial when you sign up for a qualifying Spectrum Internet plan.
Entertainment anywhere with the Xfinity Stream app
You can download the Xfinity Stream app to watch TV, movies, and sports anywhere and on any device. You can also schedule recordings on the app and watch them whenever you choose.
How to get it
Order an Xfinity internet plan, and download the Xfinity Stream app for instant access to entertainment.
