Metro by T-Mobile has been an Un-carrier subsidiary since 2013, well before its official rebrand. However, Metro customers haven't had the opportunity to participate in any deals through T-Mobile Tuesdays, the rewards program that offers weekly giveaways and savings. Beginning next week, Metro users can finally redeem the same deals as T-Mobile and Sprint customers, starting with a free subscription to MLB.tv.
T-Mobile has a contract with Major League Baseball to offer its subscribers free MLB.TV subscriptions through 2023. With another year of pandemic sports on the horizon, fans might be happy to take advantage of the Un-carrier's offer this year which is set to officially become available soon.
Sports fans may flock to linear TV for the big games, but they also have a surprisingly huge appetite for off-air content from a variety of sources. YouTube, with a ton of upstart commentary and story-telling channels to cash in on, continues to fight for its share of consumers' eyes by redesigning youtube.com/sports.
Back in March, YouTube TV was in danger of losing Fox Regional Sports channels from its service, but a deal was struck with owner Sinclair Broadcast Group that would extend the relationship.

YouTube TV is apparently about to release another add-on package — this one called Sports Plus. It's said to include seven new networks that you'll get if you pay an unknown amount of extra bucks per month. It also seems that NFL Network will be available for all YouTube TV subscribers, which is nice.
Spotify may be testing or rolling out a new daily playlist which will feature tracks from your favorite artists and genres in addition to sports podcasts. If Daily Sports spreads across to more users, it will join the streaming service's growing list of daily music-and-podcast playlists curated to its users.
The coronavirus pandemic has caused tons of disruption to many industries across the globe, and major professional sports are no different. Public health is the number one priority right now, so the NBA, NHL, and MLB are all suspended for the time being while the US is undergoing a period of self-isolation and social distancing and the NFL is lucky to be in its off-season. This couldn't come at a worse time for sports fans who are stuck at home with little to do, but thankfully the big four sports have made a bunch of classic content free to watch.
Last week, Google's Advanced Technology and Projects unit teased a collaboration centered around its Project Jacquard smart clothing tag featuring sportsgear brand Adidas and video game publisher Electronic Arts. Well, the teasing's over now and what we've got are a new pair of insoles that are meant to get you (or your kids) playing real soccer while also acing virtual soccer in EA Sports FIFA Mobile. Adidas calls it GMR.
Andrew Bell, the artist behind the company Dead Zebra, has been releasing fun Android-themed figures for years. If you just can't get enough of the little bugdroids, or if you haven't purchased any already (you monster!), the company now has 12 more figures available.
