T-Mobile is giving customers another opportunity to sign up for its free MLB.TV package, which offers out-of-market access to live baseball games and on-demand replays through the regular season.

Typically only available to customers within a short window at the start of the season, T-Mobile now says it will allow eligible home and business customers of its flagship wireless service and prepaid brand Metro by T-Mobile to sign up for MLB.TV between Tuesday, May 23 and Monday, July 17.

To get the service, customers sign up for MLB.TV through the company’s rewards program T-Mobile Tuesdays, which is available as a free download on most smartphones.

T-Mobile is also offering customers free access to Apple TV Plus’ MLS Season Pass for the season. New customers who sign up for T-Mobile’s Go5G Plus line get an extra $200 in prepaid cards to spend on other sports services (or, really, whatever they want).

“T-Mobile customers love streaming and love sports, so naturally, we’re giving them more of what they love — the best of baseball with MLB.TV, our most popular perk, and a sports streaming app of their choice, on top of the free MLS Season Pass they already get,” Mike Sievert, the CEO of T-Mobile, said in a press release. “We always put customers in the driver’s seat, and now they can choose another sports app that matches their interests perfectly.”

In addition to the streaming services, T-Mobile is giving customers an opportunity to score a pair of tickets to the T-Mobile Home Run Derby, MLB All-Star Game, VIP access to an exclusive party, airfare, hotel and spending money. The sweepstakes is open to T-Mobile customers through the T-Mobile Tuesdays app, and non-customers who mail in an entry.
