T-Mobile to cover Netflix's price increase for its "Netflix On Us" giveaway

T-Mobile to cover Netflix's price increase for its
Netflix announced last week that it was going to be raising the price of its standard plan that allows subscribers to use the service on two screens at a time. Starting sometime in November, the price for that tier of service will go up 10% from $9.99 a month to $10.99 a month. This happens to be the tier of service that T-Mobile is giving away free to subscribers of its T-Mobile One plan paying for at least two lines.

Now that Netflix is raising the price for its standard plan by $1 a month, does this mean that you'll have to pay T-Mobile $1 every 30 days to cover the price hike? The answer is a resounding "No!" After all, the Un-carrier is supposed to be curing customer pain points, not creating them.

So if you do qualify for the free "Netflix On Us," you will still be able to binge watch shows like Wentworth or Schitt$ Creek all on T-Mobile's dime. To reiterate, the Netflix standard plan that T-Mobile covers includes streaming over two screens at one time. If you want to upgrade to a premium Netflix plan, you can pay T-Mobile the $3 difference in price each month to receive 4K streams over as many as four screens at the same time.

Hopefully AT&T will counter, and not just with the lame free HBO! The major catch to the “free HBO” being that you have to be a Direct TV subscriber.

Could you be anymore misinformed? The free hbo has nothing to do with having DirecTV. The requirement for for the free hbo is that you have the AT&T unlimited plus or unlimited choice plan. No DTV required.
