Mobile adds in free Netflix for its unlimited family plans

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.

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

Two lines with T-Mobile now cost $120/month, while three lines will set you back $140. Instead, you must move to the latest two-line or more T-Mobile One plans. Here's a look at the T-Mobile pricing, to refresh your memory: Two lines with T-Mobile cost $120 per month.

T-Mobile Chief Executive John Legere said the new offer wasn't created to entice people to spend more for service, though the company has spent the past two years nudging customers toward its profitable family plans.

Customers can activate their Netflix subscriptions online, in stores or by calling the carrier.

She declined to comment on the Facebook ads, saying she could not comment on subjects that could come before the agency. It also hunted for other suspect ads and found $50,000 spent on 2,200 ads it says could have been politically related.

According to a company press release, "T-Mobile One" family plans with two or more lines now include a complimentary Netflix membership.

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. They will receive a URL that will link their Netflix and T-Mobile accounts.

T-Mobile has added a major new incentive to its basket of wireless lures.

Much like what T-Mobile's "unlimited" data has offered for the past couple years, fine print matters. To deliver even SD video, T-Mobile uses data compression to deliver your video using only 1.5Mbps.

"Video typically streams at DVD quality (480p)". If you want a higher-end Netflix plan, you'll have to pay the difference. T-Mo also notes that it's monitoring other locations that may be affected by Irma and will adjust its offer as needed.

T-Mobile shook up the industry with no-contract, monthly financing plans for mobile phone purchases.
