BT (British Telecom) is the largest internet service provider in the UK and the ISP is teaming up with Google to bundle free Google Stadia membership for broadband customers. Just last week, Google reportedly started testing Stadia on non-Pixel smartphones and just yesterday, Google promised over 120 games are coming to Stadia this year.

The Premiere Edition controller normally costs £119 from the UK Google Store, and the Stadia Pro membership costs £8.99 per month and supports 4K gaming @ 60fps in HDR. Signing up for the Premiere Edition membership also includes the Clearly White Stadia Controller, and a Chromecast Ultra.
