"Customers love streaming at T-Mobile. In fact it's the #1 use of our network with over half of overall traffic— so of course, we're expanding options for customers – bringing them the award-winning Apple TV+ for 12 months free, an offer only available from T-Mobile."

Peter Stern, Apple's VP of Services, touted that Apple TV+ currently enjoys "the highest-rated originals of any streaming service."

"T-Mobile customers can now enjoy Apple TV+ for a full year, and watch right in the Apple TV app across all their favorite devices. Apple TV+ has the highest-rated originals of any streaming service, so we are excited that millions of T-Mobile customers will be able to take advantage of this offer."
