It’s been revealed that Netflix will increase prices in the U.S. next month, and some T-Mobile customers may be wondering how this affects Netflix On Us. The good news is that it doesn’t appear that it’ll affect it at all.
T-Mobile will continue to cover the cost of a standard Netflix subscription for customers that qualify for Netflix On Us. Both T-Mobile CEO John Legere and the official @TMobileHelp account on Twitter confirmed as much this morning:

Absolutely nothing changes! T-Mobile will still cover your Netflix standard subscription with Netflix on Us. *TaylorBest

Starting in November, Netflix will raise the prices of its standard and premium plans in the U.S. The standard plan will go from $9.99 per month to $10.99, while the premium plan will increase from $11.99 per month to $13.99.
Netflix On Us is available to customers with two or more voice lines on a T-Mobile One taxes and fees included plan. The promo covers the cost of one standard Netflix subscription. If you’d like the Netflix premium plan, you can sign up for it and T-Mobile will pay Netflix for the subscription, then you’ll pay T-Mobile for the difference between the standard and premium plans on your monthly bill.
It’s been less than one month since Netflix On Us launched, and so it’s not too surprising that T-Mobile will continue to cover the cost of customers’ Netflix subscriptions after the price increase. If it didn’t, there’d probably be some customers frustrated about having to pay for that price increase after T-Mo promised to cover the cost of a sub. It’s still good to get confirmation that nothing about Netflix On Us will change despite the Netflix price increases, though.
