Verizon will offer up to one year of Apple Arcade to new Unlimited subscribers
Apple Arcade has enjoyed success since its launch in 2019. Verizon customers that have been on the fence about the gaming subscription service will be able to take Arcade for a spin if they were already contemplating setting up a new Unlimited plan.
Starting May 25, Verizon will offer a year of Apple Arcade bundled with a new Play More or Get More Unlimited plan. Other Unlimited plans will come with 6 months of Apple Arcade, free of charge.
The Apple Arcade deal comes in addition to other enticements Verizon offers for new Unlimited subscribers, including a subscription to Hulu Plus, Disney Plus, and ESPN Plus; six months of Apple Music; and more.
Android users can take advantage of the bundle as well: Verizon will offer up to a year of Google’s Play Pass subscription service for Android phones. The same stipulations apply.
Considering the relatively low cost of each subscription service (US$4.99), potential subscribers will have to weigh whether or not the $30-60 in savings is worth the added cost of an Unlimited plan. Those that were considering signing up for an Unlimited plan anyway may want to check this bundle out.
Keep in mind that Verizon’s “Unlimited” plans will throttle speeds after a certain data allotment is used (currently 50 GB), dropping connections from 5G/4G to 3G.
