Netflix’s streaming services will be offered for free for one year under an offer announced yesterday by T-Mobile. The carrier has promised a free one-year subscription to the streaming service to Samsung Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 Edge buyers.
Hope to lure more users with Netflix offer
T-Mobile will be hoping the offer will make people more inclined towards buying those devices rather than opting for devices other carriers. The monthly price of a standard “2 stream” subscription plan of Netflix is $8.99, and the promotional offer by T-Mobile is equivalent to a one-year subscription of the service.

“When you buy the powerful new Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge from T-Mobile you get 1 year of Netflix on us with access to their entire streaming library,” says T-Mobile on its Galaxy S6 pre-registration website. The carrier further said that the value delivered under the offer is worth more than $100 and is a good enough reason for people using services of other carriers to switch to T-Mobile.
Netflix offer for a limited time
T-Mobile asks potential customers to register for the offer and agrees to notify them as soon as the device comes available with them. The redemption codes for the Netflix offer from T-Mobile are limited in number, therefore, it is very important for interested customers to opt in as soon as possible. If one scrolls through the registration page, it could be noticed that the Netflix offer is available on purchases made between March 27 and April 9.
No preorder date for the Samsung Galaxy S6 line of smartphones has been announced by T-Mobile for now, but the global launch of the device is scheduled for April 10. The dates when the device will be offered by Sprint and AT&T are also unknown at present. Since an incentive program for the device has already been launched by T-Mobile, it can be expected that very soon, the preorder date will be announced. Verizon, a U.S.-based carrier, has informed potential buyers that, beginning April 1, it will start accepting pre-orders for the Galaxy S6 line of smartphones.
