Vodafone customers might soon be able to enjoy free streaming of Orange is the New Black and Breaking Bad, amid rumours that the carrier is in talks with the entertainment on-demand service.
According to the sober, business-minded sorts at Bloomberg, Voda is negotiating with Netflix to allow its pay-monthly customers to stream movies and 'big production-values, box-set' television using its service.
It’s not known if this would replace or supplement Voda’s existing sweeteners for 4G users, which are currently a choice of free Spotify access or use of the Sky Sports Mobile app.
However, as with the terms on those two incentives, which are free only for the first six months of the contract, it’s thought that Netflix access would be afforded to Voda subscribers on a time-limited basis only.
Neither Voda nor Netflix has confirmed that talks are underway, but with nothing so forthright as an outright denial we think something is definitely going on.
Previously, Netflix has partnered with Nokia and Vodafone to offer free subscriptions with the purchase of top-end Lumia smartphones for a short-term incentive.
It’s thought the new arrangement will be more permanent and will be offered across a range of smartphone marques, not just Nokia.
