Signed up to an EE pay monthly, 12-month SIM only or tablet plan? You can now take advantage of a six month Amazon Prime Video & MTV Play subscription, that won’t eat into your data allowance. The new content offer provides inclusive mobile data and comes in addition to EE’s existing Apple Music and BT Sport offers, totalling to savings of up to £164 across the four platforms.
“It’s our ambition to offer our customers unrivalled choice, with the best content, smartest devices, and the latest technology through working with the world’s best content providers…So, if they want music on a Monday, telly on a Tuesday, films on a Friday or sport on a Saturday, we’ve got something for them.” – Marc Allera, CEO of BT’s Consumer division.
Amazon Prime Video – What you need to know
Amazon Prime Video provides access to a range of box sets, films, original TV shows, documentaries and exclusives. Prime Originals include award winning titles The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and The Man in the High Castle and Prime exclusives like Vikings. Better yet, you’ll be able to take advantage of the offer anywhere your plan allows for inclusive roaming – this includes all EU countries for standard tariffs and the USA, Canada, Mexico, Australia and New Zealand for Max plan users who upgraded or joined after the 10th of May 2017. Although streaming on Prime Video during the six month offer period will not affect your data allowance, it’s worth noting that the content available on the app often differs between countries due to entertainment rights agreements.
After the offer ends, a Prime Video subscription costs £5.99 a month and will be added to your EE phone bill if you do not cancel (EE will send you an SMS to remind you in the final month of the offer). You can also cancel a Prime Video subscription at any time by texting STOP PRIME VIDEO to 150. Existing Amazon Prime Video subscription? To take advantage of the offer you’ll need to cancel your existing account directly with Amazon, unless you intend to register for an additional account using a secondary email address. For general Amazon Prime subscribers, Prime Video is already included within your membership but you are eligible for this offer as an additional subscription, again however, you must register using a secondary email address to do so (This will not replace your existing subscription with Amazon).
The lowdown on MTV Play
MTV Play is a relatively new app that lets you access a vast array of MTV’s reality content on your mobile or tablet, including hundreds of hours of catch-up and box-sets in addition to a live feed of the MTV UK linear TV channel and short form digital original series. Popular titles available in the MTV Play app include the latest episodes of smash-hit series Geordie Shore, Teen Mom UK and The Charlotte Show in addition to The Hills, Catfish and Jersey Shore. Following your six-month trial, you will be given the option pay for the app on your monthly mobile bill, costing £3.99 per month.
If you have an existing MTV Play subscription but would like to take advantage of the offer, you’ll need to suspend your existing direct payments to MTV Play via your MTV Play account, then text MTV to 150 to activate EE’s offer. Data you use over the six-month offer on MTV play will be included anywhere your plan provides inclusive roaming. This means you’ll be able to watch the MTV Play app in all EU countries and, if you have an EE Max plan, the USA, Canada, Mexico, Australia and New Zealand. Outside of inclusive countries, you’ll need to purchase a roaming pass to access MTV play abroad. You can cancel your MTV Play subscription with EE at any time by texting STOP MTV to 150.
How to activate and/or cancel
Firstly, you’ll need to be signed up to a pay monthly handset and/or tablet contract or a 12-month SIM only mobile price plan. Compatible tariff? To get started, simply text ‘Prime Video‘ or ‘MTV‘ to 150 and EE will take you through the process (including how to redeem and download the apps). EE will send you an SMS when you’re in your final month of the offer to let you know you’ll be moving onto a paid subscription in the following month, added to your EE bill, if you do not cancel. If you choose to stay with the subscription, any data used will now come out of your allowance.
