    Folks,

    As you may know many T-Mobile accounts now include Netflix. Also I have heard that Comcast is in discussions with Netflix to provide their customers "free" service. What do you all think about this? I KNOW there are some concerns now that net neutrality is gone, BUT still free is good right?

    So the main questions are: Who is enjoying it and hoping to see it come to more providers? OR is it a bad thing that might just bring down the internet. Exaggerating a bit here, BUT if Netflix (and others, Hulu, Amazon Videos, etc) are given a preferred path, might that just hurt competition from others AND negatively affect other network traffic from our providers?

    Food for thought, lets discuss!

    Currently have it free with Tmo and loving it. I hope this opens the doors for more providers to offer for their customers..........providing Netflix can handle the bandwidth.

    Not really for us cord cutters, BUT it appears they DO have a new deal with Comcast......

    Netflix will soon be included with Comcast Xfinity subscriptions | Android Central

    I have only two providers in my area - Spectrum and AT&T. The latter sucks really bad at my home in providing consistent internet so after about 8 months of heartburn I dumped them and from a technical perspective I only have one provider with reliable internet service - Spectrum. But I do have free Netflix courtesy of Samsung promo codes till March 2019. After that I will use my TMO provided free Netflix.

    I wish I got free Netflix from T-Mobile, but the 55+ plan doesn't include it. As for Xfinity, it will be interesting to see how it works. I half suspect that you will only get the free Netflix if you watch it through Comcast -- either through a cable box, the Comcast TV website, or the Comcast Video app. I'll also be curious if 4K content will be available -- which could save on my home Internet usage.

    Only certain plans will get it also. I will bet money it won’t be the internet only plan!

    No, I'm sure it will require the TV service.

    Side note, I got an e-mail from Spotify that I can change my 9.99 plan to 12.99/month and get basic Hulu. Anyone else see this?

    Yeah I saw that. Problem is I’m on a Spotify family plan. You’d think they would still offer Hulu for an additional $3/month but there’s nothing yet. Bummer!
