As part of its effort to get a jump on the competition when it comes to 5G networks, Verizon reportedly plans to offer a free 4K Apple TV to customers. YouTube TV-which launched in April of 2017-provides subscribers with cable-free live TV from over 60 networks, including ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC, plus popular cable networks like TNT, TBS, CNN, ESPN, AMC, and FX, and local sports networks in select markets. You can watch YouTube TV on any screen - mobile, tablet or computer. Verizon's next-gen broadband uses the operator's proprietary 5GTF specification, but Verizon has said it will launch 3GPP 5G NR standards-based mobile 5G in early 2019.
"The city of Indianapolis has been a strong partner in laying the groundwork for Verizon 5G", said Tami Erwin, Verizon's Executive Vice President, Wireless Operations. If you don't want that or already have a subscription, you can opt for a complimentary Apple TV 4K.More news: Brace yourself - Irish weather experts issue WARNING as Ernesto rolls in
