Update: April 30, 2020:Â Today is the last day you can sign up for Quibi and get it free for 90 days before having to pay. If you have been on the fence on getting it, now is the time to get off the fence and sign up!
The Quibi short-form video streaming service is less than a month away from launching. On April 6, people who sign up can watch 50 programs with many more on the way. They range from scripted dramas and comedies to reality shows, documentaries, and daily news programs. All of them have episodes that are just 10 minutes or less in length. Quibi plans to charge $4.99 a month for the service, with an ad placed before each video episode. To go ad-free, youâ€™ll be able to sign up for the service for $7.99 a month. But what if you wanted to try out Quibi for free?

The good news is that there are at least a couple of ways you can get Quibi for free. One is basically a very extended trial, and the other offers the service if you sign up for an unlimited wireless plan. Letâ€™s see how you can get Quibi for free.
How to get Quibi for free, method #1: Get three months for free
This is by far the easiest way to get this service for free. Basically, if you download either the iOS or Android Quibi app and sign up for the service before April 30, you will get your 90-day free trial. You can use the free trial on both the ad-free or ad-based subscription tier. Offering a three-month free trial is certainly a good way to get people to try Quibi out.
How to get Quibi for free, method #2: Sign up for a T-Mobile unlimited plan
T-Mobile has announced it will bundle Quibi for free with its unlimited plans. T-Mobile customers will have to pay for two or more lines in the carrierâ€™s Magenta or ONE plans to be eligible. It will also work with lines under the discounted First Responder, Military and Magenta Plus 55 plans. T-Mobile small business customers with up to 12 lines can get free Quibi access as well. The carrier is offering access to the ad-based Quibi tier, which normally costs $4.99 a month.
And thatâ€™s it for now. Once the service launches will be sure to update this post with any other methods that arise.
