New and existing Verizon unlimited customers will get free Disney+ for a year at launch
Apple may or may not be able to lump its existing music streaming service and upcoming video on demand platform together at a nice discount in the near future, but until that happens (if it ever happens), Verizon customers can get a slightly different bundle completely free of charge just for picking the nation's largest mobile network operator.

After adding gratis Apple Music access to a number of unlimited plan options back in January, Big Red is today announcing a one-of-a-kind Disney+ deal that will come into effect on November 12. That's when the highly anticipated Netflix rival is scheduled to finally make its commercial debut, and that's also when all of Verizon's 4G LTE and 5G unlimited wireless customers will be able to sign up for a free 12-month Disney+ trial.

This obviously differs from the Apple Music perk, which has no expiration date for those subscribed to the Play More Unlimited and Get More Unlimited plans, but on the bright side, the Disney+ freebie will be available for everyone on Verizon. Well, almost everyone, as the special offer caters exclusively to unlimited customers, be them new or existing ones. Also, new Verizon Fios Home Internet and 5G Home Internet users.

There are no other special requirements or conditions to take into consideration, which means you'll soon be able to pay as little as $70 a month for a Start Unlimited service line with free Apple Music included for six months and a full year of premium Disney+ access. Naturally, you will be allowed to stream all those popular Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, and National Geographic shows and movies on more than your Verizon-connected phone. We're talking tablets, PCs, gaming consoles, streaming media players, and smart TVs as well, with support for up to four concurrent streams, downloads for offline viewing, personalized recommendations, and yes, even 4K video playing capabilities.

Don't forget to cancel your complimentary subscription if you don't want to be charged $6.99 a month after the first year, while if you're in the market for a new iPhone or iPad from Verizon, you'll be able to compare Apple TV+ with Disney+ for a full 12 months sans paying a dime. Your move, Netflix!
