Verizon Will Offer Customers Free YouTube TV or Apple TV 4K When 5G Launches
There’s been a lot of news lately surrounding 5G, and one of the latest announcements regarding the subject comes out of Verizon. According to the carrier, when its 5G broadband service launches later this year, it’ll offer customers who sign for it a free 12-month subscription to Google’s YouTube TV. If you don’t want that or already have a subscription, you can opt for a complimentary Apple TV 4K.
According to Verizon, its 5G network will also launch in Indianapolis. The city joins the same list of 5G launch areas as Houston, Los Angeles, and Sacramento. Closer to the launch of the network, Verizon says it’ll reveal specific content plans, availability, and pricing.
To help with the launch of 5G, Verizon has previously confirmed the first smartphone that will support the technology: the Moto Z3. The device will gain 5G connectivity through a special Moto Mod that will launch in 2019. It isn’t clear exactly when it’ll be available or how much it’ll cost, but we’ll be sure to keep you posted.
