Frontier and YouTube TV are partnering to give subscribers the option of being billed for the two services together. The streaming service has more than 5 million subscribers and trial customers in the United States.
Frontier Internet customers will receive $10 off a YouTube TV subscription for a year. Current Frontier TV customers will receive a $15 discount for a year when they sign up for the video service. The carrier has offered YouTube TV since 2021.
The offer from Frontier, which is positioning itself as the “un-cable” provider, includes YouTube TV, local and national news and sports and other programming. There are no long-term contracts, a free trial, easy setup, free unlimited DVR space and six individual accounts, according to Frontier.
“Frontier is a natural partner for YouTube TV, due to our shared dedication to customer choice and flexibility,” Tony Archibong, the Managing Director of Global Product Partnerships at YouTube, said in a press release. “With this next stage of our partnership, Frontier customers will be able to sign up and enjoy all the perks of YouTube TV such as unlimited DVR, the ability to watch on any screen, innovative features such as key plays and multiview, special pricing offers for NFL Sunday Ticket and the option to cancel the service at any time, all on the same bill as their Frontier internet.”
This is not the first time that Frontier has used the “un-cable” label. Last December the company used the term to position its fiber broadband offering as an alternative to cable.
It’s interesting to note that T-Mobile, which long has referred to itself as the Un-carrier, didn’t use the un-cable label when it launched the TVision Home video service in April 2019.
