Anonymous formclose (x)UK Carrier Orange to Offer Customers 'Free' iTunes Movie Rental in Ongoing PromoMonday August 8, 2011 2:22 am PDT by Arnold KimUK mobile carrier Orange seems to be working with Apple to provide "free" iTunes movie rentals each Thursday in an ongoing promotion called Orange Film To Go.

? All Orange customers be they on Orange Home Broadband, pay as you go, pay monthly, mobile broadband or business get a weekly film download every Thursday at no cost*
? Customers can download a film and watch on a PC, laptop or an Apple mobile device - wherever they are

Orange Film To Go offers Orange customers a specific film to download from iTunes every Thursday. The specific movies are pre-selected by Orange and early choices include The Wrestler, The Ghost and Che: Part One. This week's selection is My Blueberry Nights. Spencer McHugh, Brand Director at Orange UK said: “We know Orange customers love film, so adding the Orange Film To Go service to our existing portfolio of film offers is hugely exciting for us. Giving our valued customers a film download every week to enjoy at home or out and about on a mobile device is a great way to thank them for being part of Orange. We’ve got some fantastic titles lined up for the launch and even more yet to be announced, so we’re hoping to see a significant number of our customers taking up this offer.”

Coupon codes for each weekly film are retrieved by texting texting ‘FILMTOGO’ to 85060. A 35p text message cost does apply, so they are not quite free. Movies can then be redeemed (only) on Thursday and then the usual iTunes movie rental rules kick in. Customers have 30 days to start watching the movie and then 48 hours to finish watching it.

You actually get charged 35p for the 'text code' to download it, and SMS is essentially a free-to-run side service for mobile phone companies. Of course, the current film "My Blueberry Nights" is on iTunes uk store at £2.49 for a rental, so that's still a significant saving of £2.14.Rating: 2 Positives / 0 NegativesAvatar1Reason0772 hours ago at 08:39 amOh, Orange. You seem like a nice company. Whenever I go to the movies I see your quirky, funny ads featuring hollywood celebs. You keep trying to tempt me away from O2 with your competitive pricing and great offers like Orange Wednesdays, and now this deal with iTunes.

Yet, after about 2 years of carrying the iPhone on your network you still do not support Visual Voicemail - one killer feature on my iPhone that I can't live without.

Damn you Orange, WHY!? :mad:Rating: 1 Positives / 0 NegativesAvatar1EvanLugh7 hours ago at 03:51 amthis sounds great, however i can't imagine it being any film... surely. this is orange after all..Rating: 1 Positives / 0 NegativesAvatar1FrizzleFryBen7 hours ago at 03:24 amEverything free has some cost associated with it. I wouldn't complain about the gas to drive to pick up a free couch. It would be cool if some American telecoms did cool things for their customers like this once in a while.Rating: 1 Positives / 1 NegativesAvatar1tommy0602898 hours ago at 02:28 amSounds like a nice addition to orange Wednesday's. Although I'm still unlikely to go with orange as I prefer to buy my iPhone unlocked and then pick the best carrier for my needs!

Also, when I first read it it sounded like any film rental. So hopefully it won't just be rubbish n older films!Rating: 0 Positives / 0 NegativesAvatar1barberio7 hours ago at 03:10 amTime to dig out my 6310 on PAYG

Altho, I wouldn't expect them to select a film that you'd go out of your way to see.Rating: 0 Positives / 0 NegativesAvatar1samh0047 hours ago at 03:14 amYou can get free movies every weekend in Australia, the URL is listed in certain papers, and can be free if you happen to see the URL in someone else’s paper.
