Mobile Has a New Plan: Free Netflix

T-Mobile says customers can activate Netflix by calling T-Mobile, visiting the carrier's website or walking into a carrier store beginning on September 12.

Netflix is one of the biggest streaming video services, boasting 104 million subscribers globally and almost 52 million in the United States.

T-Mobile didn't detail the terms of the Netflix deal but said it was structured to set the company apart from offerings from wireless competitors AT&T Inc. and Verizon Communications Inc. Three lines cost $140 per month while four lines cost $160 per month. Once the promotion is activated on your account, you'll receive a URL to link your T-Mobile account with your Netflix account. These are T-Mobile One's unlimited plans, which now costs a couple $120 a month, while a family of four pays $160, with all taxes and fees included. Netflix subscriptions now cost $9.99 a month. "The world is about to find out what happens when you bring two disruptors together", said T-Mobile CEO John Legere in a webcast announcing the T-Mobile Netflix offer. Let us take a closer look at what conditions need to be met in order to get Free Netflix on T-Mobile. T-Mobile bills the move as a potential savings of $120 per year.

While "value may be applied to different Netflix streaming plans", it will not make a difference in cash to get the Standard or the Basic Netflix plan - users won't get the $2 difference between these plans as a gift certificate or anything like that. Every hour, T-Mobile's Twitter account (@TMobile) will answer questions with quotes from their favorite Netflix shows, GIFs and memes. On the standard One plan, you'll get 480p video on cellular, and HD video on Wi-Fi and other internet connections. You can of course watch Netflix in full-quality using your home internet.
