Mobile's unlimited data family plans now include free Netflix

Mobile's unlimited data family plans now include free Netflix”

And in a vicious bit of PR, Sprint - the company that T-Mobile has constantly been rumored to merge with - doesn't even appear in that chart since it shows "speeds greater than 20Mbps".

The new "Netflix on Us" perk is T-Mobile's latest attempt to differentiate its service from that of larger rivals Verizon Wireless and T-Mobile. So you'll need to have a T-Mobile One "family" plan with at least two lines - presumably the economics of such a deal only start to work out for the companies when you spread out that cost among multiple people. Verizon has invested in creating short-form video geared towards younger audiences and a mobile video service called Go90. Netflix is one of the world's largest streaming video sites, with 104 million subscribers around the world and almost 52 million in the U.S. alone, as of July.

Users on the carrier's unlimited family plan, known as T-Mobile ONE, will get access to Netflix at the same price of $40 per line for a family of four, T-Mobile said in a statement.

T-Mobile said customers can activate Netflix by calling T-Mobile, visiting the carrier's website or walking into a carrier store beginning on September 12. But if you want to watch in high def, T-Mobile says you'll have to upgrade your data plan. Customers opting for the $11.99 premium plan can pay the difference in their T-Mobile bill. One, you have to be on a new T-Mobile ONE plan.
