With the 2016 MLB regular season right around the corner (woohoo!), MLB is getting its ducks in a row and announcing various offers for fans to enjoy MLB.tv for the season. If you haven’t already purchased or renewed (whether automatically or manually) your subscription for the upcoming season and you’re a customer of T-Mobile, MLB has some good news for you – you’re getting a free MLB.tv Premium subscription!
T-Mobile announced that they re-upped their sponsorship with MLB for the next three years, which includes the title sponsorship for July’s Home Run Derby (replacing Gillette). As part of their sponsorship, T-Mobile is offering its customers a free subscription to MLB.tv Premium along with a free MLB At Bat Premium subscription.
T-Mobile Simple Choice customers on qualifying plans can sign up during Opening Week, April 3-10, to get a full, free year’s subscription to MLB.TV Premium – a $109.99 value – and watch every out-of-market regular season game live on their T-Mobile devices. With 2,430 games in the regular season, that’s over 7,000 hours of streaming baseball you can Binge On – on America’s fastest 4G LTE network – without burning up any of your high-speed data. For the 2016 season, MLB.TV Premium also comes with a free subscription to At Bat Premium, the No.1 selling sports app in the Apple App Store (a $19.99 value), together with great features, including your choice of home or away broadcasts, multi-game viewing and more.
Of course, there are conditions to this…but in all honesty, they don’t seem all that restrictive. To take advantage of the offer, you must be on one of T-Mobile’s “simple choice” plans, which require a credit check. Prepaid plans aren’t eligible for the offer. Also, the offer can only be redeemed from April 3-10. You can’t sign up before the season starts, and you can’t sign up and take advantage of the offer after the first week of the season.
It’ll also be difficult for users to get a refund if they already signed up for MLB.tv through MLB – you’ll need to contact MLB.tv’s notoriously difficult customer service department and jump through those hoops.
But hey, it’s a free MLB.tv subscription. If you’re already a T-Mobile customer, it doesn’t make sense not to take advantage of this. Now, I wouldn’t switch my provider just to get a free MLB.tv subscription, but if it’s being offered up on a silver platter…why not?
