In mid-December, T-Mobile offered AT&T customers who switched to the Uncarrier a free year of the DIRECTV NOW streaming service. As it turns out, DIRECTV NOW kinda sucks, so to make it up to those specific customers, T-Mobile is granting them a free year of access to Hulu, “an awesome streaming service that actually works.”
In the announcement, T-Mobile cites a few publications that have said DIRECTV NOW is not that great of a service in its current form. Considering it’s quite possible that a few AT&T customers switched on over to T-Mobile to take advantage of the free year for DIRECTV NOW, T-Mobile wants to do right by them.
Stated by John Legere, “It turns out DIRECTV NOW is barely watchable, but we’ve got our customers’ backs! So, every former AT&T customer who took us up on our offer now gets a free year of Hulu on us. Even I can’t believe AT&T spent $67 billion on DIRECTV and still couldn’t roll out a streaming service that worked!”
If this move affects you, T-Mobile details that you will receive a notification on your phone in the coming weeks, containing a unique code that will grant you the free year of Hulu access.
