We are continuously improving and optimizing the 5G experience for everyone. We’re excited about our partnership with Microsoft as it gives our subscribers the chance to already explore the benefits of 5G in Belgium in their gaming pastime. In the future we want to invest more in cloud gaming powered by strong and reliable 5G networks and we are continuously developing and adapting our 5G offers to enhance the game play of our customers.

It is a real pleasure to collaborate with Orange Belgium and to offer Xbox All Access to their customers. We want players to have more choice and flexibility in their purchasing options. Xbox All Access makes it easy and affordable to get your choice of console and two years of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for one all-inclusive monthly price. It’s the best way to join Xbox.
So for €24.99/month subscribers in Belgium can get access to a special deal that's good all the way till February 1st of next year. They can get the "Ultra gaming pack" which is Xbox 24-month "All Access" installment plan, but the first month will be free so customers will not have to pay for all 24 months but only 23, they will also for no extra charge be able to utilize Orange's 5G network for downloads and online gaming.
This is another partner Microsoft is using t push the All Access payment plan which I think will continue to grow as people look more into affordability options.
For this deal though I'm a bit surprised that it only features the S, but I guess they'll change once the holiday is over and they will add the S to the lineup next year as well.
