Netflix on us was introduced to T-Mobile subscribers by ex-CEO John Legere in 2017
But there is one scenario under which T-Mobile subscribers will end up paying more for Netflix on us. Netflix increased the price of its premium tier of service to $22.99 per month while the standard tier remains at $15.49 per month. The Standard tier is the highest that T-Mobile is willing to pay for. If you’re a T-Mobile subscriber and already have a premium Netflix account that you’re paying for yourself, T-Mobile will cover the $15.49 monthly tab and you will be responsible for the remaining $7.50 per month.
Before T-Mobile hiked the price of its premium service, if you had your own premium Netflix plan and T-Mobile paid $15.49 toward your subscription each month, you laid out $4.50 12 times a year. But after the $3.00 price hike by Netflix, you are now paying $90 annually for premium Netflix service up from $54 before the price hike.
So yeah, as long as you stick to the standard or basic Netflix tiers, the price hike by Netflix will not affect your free T-Mobile subscription. But if you subscribe to the premium service, you will be paying for Netflix’s recent price hike even though T-Mobile will pay for some of your service.
