T-Mobile to Give AT&T Switchers Free Year of Hulu
T-Mobile today further sweetened the pie for former AT&T customers by offering a free year of Hulu. The offer is a consolation prize of sorts. In December, AT&T kicked off a promotion wherein it gave AT&T customers a free year of DirecTV Now when they switched to T-Mobile. DirecTV Now has experienced a bumpy launch, collecting numerous complaints from customers who say the service doesn't work as advertised. T-Mobile said it wants to protect customers who took advantage of the initial offer. "To make things right for those new T-Mobile customers, the Un-carrier is giving everyone who participated in this deal a free year of Hulu — an awesome streaming service that actually works — on top of their free year of DirecTV Now," said the company in a statement. T-Mobile says all former AT&T customers who signed up for a free year of DirecTV will be eligible for the free year of Hulu Limited Commercials service. The switchers will be notified with a promo code in the weeks ahead.

Does Hulu still suck?
Today my cable company (insert Big Greedy CableCo Name here) has similar tactics with shows that are currently airing new episodes in their current season. They won't let me watch episodes 1-10 of a certain show, but I can watch episodes 11-19 no problemo.
Dear CableCo: This pisses me off so much you might have just convinced me to cut the cord.
As long as this kind of BS makes it harder to legally obtai...
