Paramount+ On T-Mobile
Active T-Mobile and Sprint postpaid customers on many plans can claim a year of Paramount+ Essential.
This offer is only available for the Essential monthly plan and cannot be applied to any other Paramount+ subscription plan, like the Premium plan or grandfathered Limited Commercial plan. This means you will not have the mobile internet friendly option of downloading content for offline viewing, which is handy when you know you’re heading off into a weak signal area.
Those on active T-Mobile and Sprint postpaid wireless phone and Home Internet customers, including T-Mobile for Business customers are eligible for a free year of Paramount+ ON US.
Plans that are not eligible for Paramount+ ON US include:
- Mobile Internet only (tablets, laptops, hotspots, watches, etc.)
- Prepaid plans
- Metro by T-Mobile customers
- Businesses with more than 12 voice lines
- Government and Puerto Rico customers
Signing Up for Paramount+ On T-Mobile
Customers who do not already have a Paramount+ plan and those who already have a Paramount+ Essentials plan should sign up for a free year of service by going to https://promotions.t-mobile.com/ParamountPlus
If you are already a Paramount+ Premium member you can not apply this offer towards your existing subscription. Instead, you will need to cancel your Paramount+ Premium plan, wait until the end of your current billing cycle, and resubscribe to the Essential plan either through T-Mobile or through Paramount+.
If you’re on the no-longer-available grandfathered Limited Commercials plan, do note that you will lose the plan permanently if you cancel and utilize this offer.
A credit or debit card number is required to sign up for this offer.
After your one year, you will be automatically charged the current Essential monthly rate if you do not cancel prior to the last month of the offer period. Paramount+ will not send a reminder alerting you of your upcoming offer expiring. To check when your offer will expire you can log in to your Paramount+ account.
Thoughts & Analysis
Paramount+ ON US is not T-Mobile’s first streaming service promo. For years, T-Mobile has offered customers on many unlimited plans free Netflix. More recently Apple TV Plus has been offered to Magenta and Magenta MAX subscribers.
Do note that some of our current TOP PICK T-Mobile plans – including the Mobile Internet and the Tablet Add-on plans – are not eligible for the Paramount+ ON US perk. Business Unlimited Ultimate (with less than 12 lines), Magenta MAX, and the Magenta Global Plus 15GB phone plan are eligible.
Sprint customers on postpaid plans are also eligible for this promo, a demonstration of T-Mobile’s continued integration of Sprint into their systems.
We welcome added bonuses to existing plans. Just do be aware that this offer does not include the ability to download content for offline viewing. We also recommend that you set a reminder to cancel your service before you are automatically charged in a year if you don’t wish to continue.
