Mobile network O2 has revealed an exciting new Christmas gift for its customers. And it’s a biggie.
Those who are poised to buy – or upgrade to – a new monthly contract or SIM-only plan with O2 will now be able to pick from a variety of new upgrades, including a complimentary membership to Amazon Prime Video, Amazon Prime Music and more. That means you’ll be able to tune-in to exclusive Premier League matches shown on Prime Video for the first time this year, as well as shows like The Grand Tour, Good Omens and Man In The High Castle.
Given that Amazon charges £5.99 a month for its video on-demand offering alone, this is a very generous stocking filler from O2.
Dubbed O2 Extras, the new perks include the aforementioned Prime Video and Prime Music, as well as a subscription to audiobook service Audible or magazine subscription service Cafeyn, which lets you browse through print articles from your smartphone or tablet without buying each individual magazine. From December 16, 2019 customers will also get the choice to pick a subscription to MelodyVR, which lets you experience sold-out shows, intimate performances and far-flung festivals in Virtual Reality (VR).

Those with a monthly data allowance of 30GB of more, the International Bolt-On will be free for the first 36 months with O2 Extras.
O2 Extras is available to new and upgrading O2 Pay Monthly customers on handset, tablet and SIM-only contracts. It can be rare for these goodies to apply to existing customers – with the best perks often going (unfairly) to new customers only.
New customers and those upgrading to contracts of 30GB/month will get six-month memberships to the service of their choice, while those on 5GB – 30GB/month can enjoy three-month memberships to all of the above services.
Either way, this is definitely a Christmas gift that will last well into the new year.
O2 Chief Marketing Officer Nina Bibby said: “O2 already helps you make the most of your social life with Priority tickets to the biggest and best gigs, but we want to make sure we’re helping our customers make the most of their downtime too. With O2 Extras, our customers can get even more from their tariff with a range of amazing services and features to suit them. There’s something for everyone, including movies, magazines, music and TV.
“And we’ll be adding even more exciting new offers over the coming months. The services are all managed through the MyO2 platform, meaning there’s no extra admin involved in enjoying your chosen O2 extra.”
The news follows a similarly generous Christmas gift from Sky TV to its customers, which offered access to Sky Sports over part of the festive period, as well as a free film from the Sky Cinema catalogue and more. The offer applies to all existing customers and can be claimed right now.
