With Disney+ slated to launch next month, the forthcoming streaming service still has a few tricks up its sleeves. Announced Tuesday evening, Verizon is offering a free one-year subscription to customers.

As an effort to pull away potential long-term subscribers from its competitors, the new Disney+ promotion will be made available for new and existing Verizon wireless unlimited customers, as well as new Fios home internet and 5G home internet customers. If you’ve already pre-ordered Disney+, you are still eligible for the aforementioned deal as your purchase will be put on hold until Verizon’s promo period ends.

Disney+ is scheduled to launch on November 12 with a basic plan costing $6.99 USD per month. The streaming network will include existing TV shows and movies from Disney, Marvel, Pixar, Star Wars and will be compatible with iPhone, Android, Roku, Xbox, and PS4.

“The launch of Disney Plus kicks off a new era of streaming for The Walt Disney Company, bringing nearly a century’s worth of content from our iconic studios to consumers directly,” Kevin Mayer, chairman of Disney’s Direct-to-Consumer & International segment, said in a statement. “We’re excited to share this moment with Verizon and bring Disney Plus to the millions of customers across its award-winning wireless network.” Head over to Verizon for more details.

This is similar to Apple TV+‘s recent deal, which is offering up a free one-year subscription upon purchasing a new Apple product. Apple TV+ is also slated to launch in November and will be priced at $4.99 USD per month.
