AT&T to give Windows Phone 7 users free entertainment package

AT&T Free Entertainment Package

 

As we move forward to the launch of Windows Phone 7 in just two days, AT&T is set to give away a free entertainment package for customers who purchase a Windows Phone from October 25th through December 31st. While the package is only good for 30 days, it gives you access to three major components of the new Windows Phone platform. Totaling $29.97 in value, according to the AT&T webpage, the package will offer the following:

  • A 30 day Zune Pass which enables you to have unlimited access to songs in the Zune Marketplace. You also get to keep 10 songs a month, which are DRM free. After the 30 day trial, you will have the option of retaining your membership for $14.99/month. More information about the Zune Pass can be found here.
  • A 30 day AT&T U-verse Mobile subscription which gives U-verse TV customers one-app access to download and watch TV shows and schedule their home DVR recordings directly on their smartphone.
  • A free 3D Xbox Live game from Southend Interactive, makers of Lode Runner HD and Tecmo Bowl Throwback, called ilomilo. The game is essentially a 3D puzzle, with extremely detailed artwork. Check out the trailer below. 

More details can be found over at AT&T's website.

In the past I've tried zune pass & when trial was ending i just receive an email for an option to upgrade & kept the 10 free songs regardless. I have now been a subscriber giving my kids the free downloads for the month. Not to mention you can use up to three zune devices / phone for your subscription. WP7 has finally made a device that caters to the like minded. Pathetic that i will have to wait for Verizon next spring.

Not to mention you get 3 months of Zune free if you pre-order. But thats available on every carrier.

So does that mean you get 4 months of Zune Pass free? Because... MS gives a free month of Zune Pass to new subscribers anyway (or at least they did back when I was rockin the Zune 80).

And that's a slicking looking little game. I wonder how difficult it will be to play using an accelerometer. I hope it supports using a physical keyboard.

I wonder if you can just have the $15/month get tacked onto the phone bill. If so, there will be way more subscribers. Microsoft would be smart to have the billing set up that way.

Misleading title. It's not a free package but a trial, designed to generate them more money through increased subscriptions. Do we really need another Windows Phone 7 advert on Neowin?

It's still the full content for free for a month.

Yet, if you don't cancel before that month you will be charged full price. Not worthy in my opinion.

The free game is a trial?

You mean I need to open the Zune software, goto accounts and press a button to cancel anytime before the 30 days are up? And exchange for that 15 second inconvenience I get 10 free songs and a month of free streaming audio?

Oh the horror.

Well, you get to keep 10 songs and a game.
