T-Mobile Offers Verizon Customers Free Year of Hulu to Switch

Hulu-iconT-Mobile has announced a fourth "Un-carrier Unwrapped" holiday promotion that offers Verizon customers 12 months of Hulu's Limited Commercials plan for free, a value of $7.99 per month or $96 annually.

The offer is valid for Verizon customers that switch any phone number to a T-Mobile Simple Choice postpaid plan between December 11 and December 17.

Verizon customers who switch to T-Mobile will receive a text message with a $100 Hulu subscription gift code, enough to pay for more than 12 months of Hulu's Limited Commercials plan.

Verizon customers can combine the offer with T-Mobile's Carrier Freedom promotion, which provides up to $650 towards a balance owing or to pay off early termination fees (ETFs) with an eligible device trade-in.

T-Mobile is also offering Verizon customers that switch up to half off its lineup of financed in-store accessories:
That could mean as much as a $125 discount on the hottest mobile gifts, like the latest smartwatches, UE Boom and JBL Bluetooth speakers, top-of-the-line headphones, Fitbit fitness trackers, Guitar Hero Live for iOS and more.
This limited time offer is part of T-Mobile's monthlong "Un-carrier Unwrapped" holiday promotion that offered three months of free unlimited LTE data to Simple Choice customers, a $200 bill credit for Sprint customers and $200 off a 128GB iPhone 6s for AT&T customers.

I wish that they would just focus on improving their network and not worry so much about these promotions that do nothing for current customers.

Well, they are

This is just a horrible deal. I was honestly thinking they would give real incentive for users to switch, but a year of Hulu that some may already have or not even want and 50% off some cheap overpriced accessory? Sprint got the best deal of a $200 bill credit, and ATT was pretty good with $200 off the 128GB iPhone. T-Mobile needed to give Verizon customers a real reason to ditch a superior network coverage wise. This is not it.

Seems a bit of an overreaction, don't you think? It's just a promotion on top of already great existing promotions and comparatively dirt-cheap monthly service fees. Seems to me there is no "horrible deal" going on here; they're simply going to be unable to get everyone to switch, but this will be appealing to plenty of people.

No! This is horrendous by comparison to the Sprint and AT&T offers.

I got excited as I read the title, "T-mobile offers Verizon customers free year of.." But then read Hulu.

T-mobile, please. That's basically saying "join us, we have cookies."

I wish that were true because there are multiple areas on there that they show as being covered when there is in fact no coverage. It is one reason that we had to switch my wife's phone to another carrier, away from T-Mobile when we moved to Rhode Island

The "horrible deal" statement was a bit much. But as a Verizon customer who would have kicked the tires a little if the offer would have been closer to what they offered Sprint and AT&T customers I'm saying "meh" and walking away.

Fact is this "deal" was probably calculated on the fact that they knew the likelihood of snagging many Verizon customers is going to be low. Verizon customers usually pay a premium for what they believe to be superior coverage, and don't even sniff too hard at TMO because they're afraid of losing that reliability. I will say that, as much as I hate Verizon on many fronts the only thing that keeps me on their network is the fear of losing signal. Not in the city, but when I go to fringe areas like the mountains. TMO probably knows this, and doesn't see any reason to throw a bunch of money out there for Verizon users to switch.

Yeah that's not true at all unfortunately. Most of this is due to their "extended range LTE" which in reality is really far fetched. After enabling band 12 they now "cover" completely new towns just due to that upgrade alone, when the entire town is in the fair color on their maps. When you are actually in this area, you usually get no service at all.

I agree to a point, but I think what really annoys me is that T-Mobile advertised this as being an awesome deal for Verizon customers, and making Verizon the last made it seem like it would be the best deal. Many people waited around for this to just be dissapointed.

Currently on Verizon but tried Tmobile via Samsung Ultimate Test Drive and it's just as good in the areas I frequent but Hulu offer wouldn't push be off the fence. Something like a free flagship phone is more convincing.
