Yesterday Netflix quietly removed its cheapest ad-free plan. Now when Netflix brings you to the choose your plan page, it only shows the $6.99 with ads option, the $15.49 standard option, and the $19.99 premium opinion.
This raised a lot of questions about the future of T-Mobiles free Netflix offering because it offered the Basic plan that Netflix no longer sells.
The good news is T-Mobile will continue to offer free Netflix Basic to both current and new T-Mobile customers who signup for a qualifying plan, according to a report from Eli Blumenthal.
So T-Mobile customers can continue to enjoy the great benefit of free Netflix along with your T-Mobile plan.
If you pay Netflix directly for the Basic plan, Netflix says you will be grandfathered in, allowing you to keep your plan. If you switch to a different plan, you won’t be able to go back to the $9.99 a month Basic option.
Here is a recent update to T-Mobile’s FAQ about their free Netflix that talks about the recent plan changes.

Yes, if you pay for Netflix through T-Mobile and decide to change your plan from Basic to Standard with Ads, Standard, or Premium, you can still change your plan back to Basic at this time.
