EE have announced that there will be no more Orange Wednesday cinema offers after 25th February 2015.

 

From about 1994 EE (which merged with Orange and Tmobile), have been running an offer whereby their customers could apply for a code to be sent to their mobile in order to get 2 for 1 on cinema tickets.

 

All is not lost as EE have confirmed that they will be introducing a new offer to its customers following the end of Orange Wednesdays.

Hi gemz4the1


Thank you for sharing the link and information.

I suppose to keep things fresh and inviting they need to move with supply and demand.

That is what EE said in their statement - they wanted to move with the times and update their offers in order to appeal to more people.

I believe your facts are incorrect. The Orange cinema ticket offer has been going for around 10 years, not since 1994, and EE is not a merger with Orange and T-Mobile, but a merger of Orange and T-Mobile.

@Bambino is correct about how EE was formed through a joint partnership merger of Orange (owned by Orange S.A. and Deutsche Telekom).

EE announced the ending of Orange Wednesdays as they were unable to agree commercial terms with cinema chains.

or in Orange speak "move with supply and demand" LOL

I have no affiliation whatsoever with O2 or any subsidiary companies. Comments posted are entirely of my own opinion. This is not Customer Service so we are unable to help with account specific issues.

How do you move with supply and demand? I couldn't imagine orange using that term.

But not in O2's case......the demand for various phones recently was high but supply was non-existent.
