EE has just upped its free video streaming game by offering new and existing customers the chance to try Amazon Prime Video and MTV Play for free for six months. That’s in addition to its existing BT Sport and Apple Music packages, making the UK’s fastest 4G network the ultimate option for those who want to stream video on the go.
So, how can you take advantage? And what can you save? Read on and we’ll tell you five things you need to know about EE’s Amazon Prime Video and MTV Play offers.
1. Six months of Amazon Prime
The headline offer is undoubtedly free access to Amazon Prime Video for six months. This deal is available to new and existing customers, as long as it’s activated by 11th September 2019. Valued at £5.99 a month, it works out as a total saving of £35.94.
As well as the chance to watch award–winning shows like The Marvellous Mrs Maisel, those who sign up can use their login to watch Prime Video via games consoles, Amazon’s Fire TV devices and smart TVs. That means you don’t just have to watch shows on your smartphone.
2. And six months of MTV Play
Recently launched, MTV Play offers the chance to watch shows such as Geordie Shore, Catfish and The Hills, among hundreds of hours of catch–up and boxsets. You can even watch MTV live on your phone.
As with Amazon Prime, the free offer lasts six months. At the end of that period, subscribers will get the option to pay a monthly fee via their phone bill for MTV Play.
3. Save a fortune
While rival networks make you choose between free services, both MTV Play and Amazon Prime Video are available to all new and existing EE subscribers on pay monthly phone and tablet deals and 12–month SIM-only contracts.
But that’s not all. You can still take advantage of six months free Apple Music streaming and three months of BT Sport (including casting to a compatible smart TV device). EE says this works out as a total saving of £164 in subscription costs.
4. And stream without using your data
Perhaps the best part of EE’s new offers is the fact that using them won’t eat into your data allowance during the six-month trial.
This plays into increasingly popular moves from all major networks to offer social media, music and video streaming outside of standard data packages. EE has made it easy to set up too. Just text Prime Video or MTV 150 and it will explain how to download the requisite apps and get started.
5. Plus a handy new Video Data Pass
For those who keep up their Amazon Prime and MTV subscriptions after the initial six months, EE is also offering a new Video Data Pass.
Priced at £8.99 per month on a rolling 30-day term, it lets EE users access video services such as Amazon, MTV, Netflix, TVPlayer and BT Sport without eating into their data allowance.
