According to a support document that was recently published (h/t @OriginalPenguin), Google is planning to offer One subscribers an extended three-month trial for Stadia Pro, matching offers that come with some Chromebooks and the new Pixel phones. This even applies to folks that took advantage of previous trials or who canceled a Stadia Pro membership, according to the published terms, though the promotion doesn't seem to be live just yet.
UK network BT has just launched a Stadia broadband bundle, and now Verizon is following suit with a similar deal. It has announced that new Fios Gigabit customers will receive Stadia's Premiere Edition for free. This promo stacks on top of the network's existing free one-year Disney Plus offer.
In a recent interview between Protocol and Google executive Phil Harrison, it was revealed that Stadia's free tier will launch "over the next few months," which certainly sounds like acknowledgement it will come well after the late-February timeline many people had anticipated. While this is a letdown for anybody looking to test the waters without forking over for an early access kit, it also brought up bigger concerns for many current members that didn't intend to maintain Pro subscriptions after the 3-month trial ended. Fortunately, we now know a bit more about what will happen for those players that already made game purchases, and they basically have nothing to worry about.
