According to T-Mobile, the “Netflix on Us” offer allows you to “stream your favorite movies and shows across any device — TV, computer, tablet or phone. A Netflix subscription is included with most Go5G plans at no extra cost.” However, the Basic subscripion that comes with single line plans and some multi-line plans lets you stream on just one device at a time, and only at standard definition.

Apple TV+

T-Mobile also offers Apple TV+ for free with Go5G Next and Go5G Plus plans, according to the carrier’s website.
