In an attempt to show off the capabilities of its nationwide 4G network, T-Mobile is giving every Galaxy S III owner a free copy of The Avengers as a virtual preload.

New and existing users will be able to download the movie from the Samsung Media Hub, with T-Mobile encouraging customers to take advantage of their unlimited 4G data. Users with Samsung AllShare will be able to stream the movie, and any other movie downloaded from the media hub, to their TV.

“T-Mobile is committed to bringing leading-edge smartphone experiences to our customers by offering new features, including exciting content such as ‘Marvel’s The Avengers,’” said Brad Duea, senior vice president, product management, T-Mobile USA. “Whether our customers choose to stream or download content directly to their devices or share it to the big screen, as the only nationwide 4G network that offers an unlimited 4G data plan, T-Mobile is making it easier than ever to unleash all that the Galaxy S III has to offer.”

The Avengers will be available to download for free from September 25th, to mark the availability of the Samsung AllShare Cast Wireless Hub which is coming to T-Mobile for $99.99 the day before.

John's been addicted to technology ever since he tinkered with his first custom built PC when he was 10 years old. He's also the proud owner of seven Amazon Kindles, but only because he destroyed the first six.

    Then the big question is whether or not you can trick your phone into believing it's a T-Mobile phone and get the movie anyways. Unless of course T-Mobile went all out and is giving EVERY single GS3 owner a copy, in which case i'd probably go "O.O Must download!" but eh. Details.

    that's Awesome! I'm a T-Mobile GS3 owner so I will definitely be downloading this plus I've always wanted to see the movie and never have yet. - )

    So when did T-Mobile become the only 4g network with unlimited data? Did Sprint suddenly shut down or something?

      sorry they meant to say only "useable" 4G network, you know one where you're getting 20 to 25mbps on Magenta HSPA+42 rather than <1mbps on great Yellow.

    The Avengers would make a good sales pitch. Let's see if the technology works.
