T-Mobile's Netflix On Us will remain the same for the time being
T-Mobile customers who are worried that Netflix’s price hikes will affect Netflix On Us, fear not — T-Mobile CEO John Legere confirmed on Twitter that the program won’t change. For now.
That caveat gives Legere and T-Mobile some wiggle room in the event that things do change. For now, however, T-Mobile will cover the costs of Netflix’s price increases. Legere also said that T-Mobile is working with Netflix to observe what sort of impact the price hikes might have.
Legere said he’ll have more to share by May 1.
Today Netflix let us know they’re increasing prices. Good news: #NetflixOnUs won’t change for now. It’s still on us! We’re working with Netflix to determine what impact, if any, this may have down the road. We will know more by 5/1!— John Legere (@JohnLegere) January 15, 2019
With Netflix On Us, T-Mobile subscribers with at least two lines with an eligible T-Mobile One voice plan can get Netflix’s standard plan for free. Subscribers can pay $3 per month if they want to step up to a Netflix Premium subscription, which lets you stream HD and UHD content on four devices at the same time.
Earlier today, Netflix announced price increases for all three of its plans. The basic plan goes from $8 to $9 per month, while the standard plan goes from $11 to $13. The premium plan goes from $14 to $16 per month.
All three price increases are effective immediately for new subscribers. Current subscribers will see the price hikes over the next three months.
