Verizon offers free Apple TV 4K in 5G residential broadband package

“Verizon today announced that it will offer the Apple TV 4K as part of its 5G residential broadband package that’s set to launch in four markets this year, including Indianapolis, Houston, Los Angeles, and Sacramento,” Juli Clover reports for MacRumors.

“A free Apple TV 4K will be provided to Verizon 5G broadband customers in lieu of a traditional cable box,” Clover reports. “Several other cable providers have also been offering the Apple TV 4K as an option to customers, including DirecTV in the US, Canal+ in France, and Salt in Switzerland”

Clover reports, “In addition to an Apple TV 4K, Verizon is also planning to provide its 5G broadband subscribers with a subscription to YouTube TV, YouTube’s $40 per month streaming service that offers access to television shows on ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC, the CW, Disney, ESPN, FX, USA, and dozens more.”

MacDailyNews Take: There’s a nice win for Apple TV!


  1. This is what I have been preaching to the cable “monopoly” mindset.

    Yes, it may take a year or two but ATT Is rolling out a 5G plan too.

    Remember, rural areas did not get lit as soon as cities, nor did they get phone as quick either. Hell not many even got radio for awhile.

    This is how free markets work. Competition spurs markets (and visa versa).
