Get Apple Arcade add-on free for six months

Apple Arcade is available only on Apple devices and requires a handset using the latest iOS version. Get six free months of Apple Arcade and enjoy unlimited access to over 200 incredibly fun games - all in one subscription.

How does six months of free Apple Arcade work?

We’ll treat you to six months of Apple Arcade:

  • whether you’re joining EE as a new customer or you’ve been with us for years
  • if you are a Consumer customer with a EE pay monthly or SIM only phone plan on a 12-month or more minimum term

During the free 6 months, it will appear on your bill as an included benefit in the "included with EE" section. After this, it will appear on your bill as a charge in the entertainment section.

To sign up:

  • text ARCADE to 150 - we'll send you a 6 months’ free activation code, or
  • log in to EE or download the EE app and go to Plan & Add-ons > Add-ons >Apple Arcade
  • then follow the instructions we send you

What happens after the free six months?

What if I already have Apple Arcade?

If you are an existing Apple Arcade member you will need to cancel your existing subscription directly with Apple. If you do not, you will continue to be charged by Apple.

What to do if you receive the error "This subscription is being used with another Apple ID"

In some cases, if you have previously had an Apple Arcade subscription you might see this error message. To fix this, please contact Apple Support and ask to change the Apple ID associated with your Apple Arcade subscription.
