You are eligible for the free Netflix perk as long as you have two or more lines active using a T-Mobile One unlimited data plan. You’ll receive Netflix’s “standard” plan which usually costs $9.99 per month. This plan allows two concurrent streams in HD quality. You can pay an extra $2 to get the “premium” plan which lets you allows four concurrent streams at 4K resolution (regularly $11.99 per month).
“The future of mobile entertainment is not about bolting a satellite dish to the side of your house or resuscitating faded 90s dotcoms. The future is mobile, over-the-top and unlimited,” said T-Mobile CEO John Legere.
“While the carriers spend billions on their franken-strategies to cobble together carrier–cable–content mashups, the Un-carrier just leapfrogged them all by partnering with the best and giving it to customers at no extra charge. Because that’s what we always do. Give more to you without asking more from you.”
So why is T-Mobile able to offer unlimited data and encourage users to binge on their favorite movies and TV shows on Netflix? Well, the wireless carrier says that its network is able to take a licking and keep on ticking, unlike the AT&T-Verizon duopoly. While AT&T and Verizon have seen their average LTE download speeds fall since launching new unlimited data plans earlier this year, T-Mobile has had no ill effects on its ability to provide speeds approaching 30Mbps to customers.
T-Mobile says that the promotion starts on September 12th, and you can choose to sign up in person at a T-Mobile store, online, or over the phone.
