(Pocket-lint) - Verizon is working on a new experience that's exclusive to Verizon customers. Called +Play, it's being described as a platform that allows you to discover, purchase, and manage your subscriptions, including Netflix, Disney+, Peloton, and others. Here is everything you need to know about +Play, including which subscriptions support it.
What is Verizon +Play?
In March 2022, during an investor event, Verizon announced a platform called +Play. It's where you'll be able to manage your subscriptions to content and entertainment services. When you think about the multiple streaming platforms you probably subscribe to for TV, movies, gaming, music, and even books, a digital hub to help you manage all those services would be a convenient tool.
Which subscriptions support +Play?
According to Verizon, customers will be able to manage subscriptions to the following services, all in one central place:
- A+E Networks
- HBO Max
- Live Nation’s Veeps
- TelevisaUnivision’s Vix+
- The Athletic
- WW Internation, Inc
As you can see there are endless streaming services that don't support Verizon +Play right now, but the hub is still not yet widely available, so perhaps Verizon will add more partners before it does go live for all.
How does Verizon +Play work?
Verizon has yet to detail how +Play will work - but it has revealed, roughly, when the hub will launch for Verizon customers and which subscriptions you will be able to manage with it.
Where is Verizon +Play available?
+Play will be exclusive to Verizon customers in the US.
When can you try Verizon +Play?
+Play is scheduled to go live later in 2022. But trials will begin at the end of March with a "select group of customers and brands".
Will Verizon +Play be free to use?
Yes, it will be free to use. Verizon said +Play is a "unique digital hub designed to centralise subscription services at no additional cost to Verizon customers".
