T-Mobile ONE Family Plans Will Include Free Netflix Subscriptions Starting September 12

T-Mobile today announced that its T-Mobile ONE family plans will come with free Netflix subscriptions beginning September 12, allowing plan members to stream Netflix content at no additional monthly charge. To qualify, users will need two or more paid voice lines on a T-Mobile ONE family plan, and if customers already pay for a Netflix subscription, the un-carrier will cover the cost of the standard price: "meaning you’ll save nearly $120 every year."


This means that users who take advantage of the offer will get Netflix's $9.99/month, 2-screen subscription plan at no additional cost.

The company is calling the new addition "Netflix On Us," and described it as a way for T-Mobile to tackle "one of the biggest customer pain points" in mobile networking contracts, which is bigger bundles at increased prices. T-Mobile said that while other carrier bundles are about including some features users want and some they don't, with the end goal of increased monthly prices, Netflix On Us adds a service that most T-Mobile customers already use at no extra cost.
“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 John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile. “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.”

“This is the right move at the right time — for all the right reasons,” said Reed Hastings, co-founder and CEO of Netflix. “More and more fans are bingeing on mobile, so we’re bringing together Netflix’s award-winning TV shows and movies with T-Mobile’s award-winning, unlimited network.”
T-Mobile ONE customers with unlimited everything can also now add Netflix On Us, as well as customers with free lines from T-Mobile's recent "line-on-us" deals. To celebrate the new partnership, T-Mobile is launching a Twitter "meme-a-thon" tomorrow, September 7, where users will be able to enter to win smartphones, Netflix and T-Mobile swag, and BingeBoxes filled with "bingeing essentials" by responding to the company's Twitter account with Netflix show quotes, GIFs, and memes.

Great offer, but free Netflix isn't worth having a family.

T-Mobile to tackle "one of the biggest customer pain points" in mobile networking

I'm glad some people will be qualified and excited to take advantage of this, but this was NOT the "biggest customer pain point" when it comes to wireless carriers.

Promo T-mobile one won't work, so if you're paying <$120, we don't get it.

More gimmicks by T-Mobile. I can't believe people keep falling for this stuff...

2 Line Plan jumps from $100 (with autopay) to $120 (with autopay)

tl;dr? You're getting $10 of "free netflix," but they raised the plan cost by $20.

What a great uncarrier! We should all bow down to Legere!!



To qualify, all you need are two or more paid voice lines on T-Mobile ONE with taxes and fees included. Even customers with free lines from the Un-carrier’s wildly popular recent “line-on-us” deals qualify. Customers on Unlimited 55+ or 2 lines for $100 can get Netflix On Us simply by switching to the latest T-Mobile ONE plan.


Single line users can't have it either.

Netflix will of course be limited to 480p rather than HD.

They said if you have T-Mobile One + then you DO get HD and 4k and all that jazz.

Also to the people saying free. T-mobile wanted to make clear it's not free. They're paying the $9.99 bill. IF you go with the $11.99 plan then they pay the $9.99 and the other $2 is on your T-Mobile Bill.

T-mobile seems to have good plans but very bad coverage, even in big cities, of the country. A 'good deal' that you can't take advantage of isn't a good deal. That is why people are complaining, especially if they get sold a plan that gives them very bad service.


I've travelled all over the country within the past two years (every state east of the Mississippi River [two week road trip plus travel for work], states in the mountain west, and Canada). The only time I have poor coverage is when I've been out in the middle of nowhere (and even then I sometimes had coverage). LTE coverage at my house isn't great and there are some weak spots in my city but I have 100 mbps internet and WiFi at home and I live in a smallish rural city. T-Mobile has had great service for me except in some very rural locations. AT&T and Verizon have wider coverage but I also only pay $21 per month for 3 lines (4 GB data per month). Add to that the regular T-Mobile Tuesdays promotions (gas $.25 off per gallon, free movies, etc.), a very inexpensive iPhone upgrade promo last year, free texting and data in Canada, etc. and it would take a lot for Verizon or AT&T to get my business.

I'm not brand loyal to T-Mobile; I'm "loyal" to the company that gives me the best value and service for the money. So far, that's been T-Mobile.
