Get a Free Year of Disney + From Verizon
If you, like me, are a big Disney fan, you are counting down the days until the November 12 launch of Disney + , the streaming service for everything Star Wars , classic Disney cartoons and Duck Tales . Another reason for Verizon subscribers to mark the date on their calendars is to sign up for a free year of Disney + at that point.
As Verizon announced today, the carrier plans to offer (almost) all of its subscribers a year of free use of Disney + at $ 70 if you pay annually, or $ 84 if you pay for Disney + month after month. Unfortunately, you cannot sign up for this promotion yet, but you will definitely want to make an event on the calendar for November 12, so you don’t forget.
And, yes, that means if you’ve already signed up for a Disney + account, you won’t get a free year until the end. At least I’m pretty sure it works; think of a free year as one large free trial that should automatically convert to a subscription after 12 months (if Verizon understands this).
However, this is not the only snag. Verizon is very clear about who is eligible for this offer:
“With the launch of Disney + on November 12, Verizon will become the exclusive wireless operator offering 12 months of Disney + to all new and existing 4G LTE and 5G customers with unlimited wireless. Verizon will also offer 12 months of Disney + to its new customers Fios Home Internet and 5G Home Internet. ”
In other words, if you’re on Verizon’s prepaid plan – like me – I’m pretty sure you won’t get a year of free use of Disney +. That’s a subtle difference between your level of service and the more expensive unlimited data plans that Verizon would prefer for you.
Currently, you can subscribe to “updates” for the limited promotion via the Verizon official website . This is also where you will likely go to activate your free year on November 12, so be sure to check back later.
