With Magenta 55+ and Magenta MAX 55+, can the Netflix service be used other than on the phones? Like on the Roku box at home?

Yes but for me it's not worth it to change from my One 55+ plan.

My primary concern was keeping the 10GB hotspot our current plan gives me. 

The “Magenta 55+” plan is the same price as what we have, has the same in-flight WiFi offering but only a 5GB hotspot and a pretty worthless Netflix offering.

The “Magenta Max 55+” plan has a potentially useful unlimited in-flight WiFi feature, an absolutely overkill 40GB hotspot and a normal Netflix offering. We’d basically end up paying $20/month for a $14 Netflix account and an hour or so extra WiFi time on the 4 flights we’ve been taking each year when there hasn’t been a plague.

We’ll be staying with our current plan, which has proven to meet our needs.

I recently switched from a no-longer available unlimited account to Magenta Max 55+.    This was the first account option that equaled and/or bettered my old account.  

I only have a single line so the Netflix offer for Magenta Max is a standard definition account worth 8.99.    I used the link provided by T-Mobile to move my existing Netflix account to T-Mobile control.

It was an existing premium 17.99 account so I get a 8.99 discount to $9.00 per month.    It is a real Netflix account; just the billing is done through T-Mobile.

By switching to Magenta Max 55+ and T-Mobile Home Internet I am saving $25 on internet service, $20 on phone service, and $8.99 on Netflix.   $54 per month savings.

I was just posting about this.  New to Tmobile and have the Magenta 55+ with two free lines of SD Netflix.  Have an existing single user $8.99 Netflix account.  How did you go about using your existing account for signing up?  You said you used Tmobile’s link, but was in the general sign up link or a special one for existing Netflix account?  And you can watch it on a home tv with Roku or some streaming device?

Use the link posted above.

I have the same Netflix account that I had before I got the Netflix discount.   The only change is that the billing is done by T-Mobile and not by Netflix any more.

Depends on the plan and number of lines.

I appreciate that Netflix got a lot better with faster downloading, espeically when it comes to downloading multiple titles. When ever I'm on a plane, Netflix has no problem accessing the downloads page, unlike HBOMax.

I have 2 lines on the Magenta 55 + plan. Added Netflix Standard for HD viewing to replace my account that I was paying for.  My new total plan now shows I am being charged 13.99 for Netflix and that cost was added to my monthly charge. Am I missing something and shouldn’t the charge for the service be $5.00 per month.  How does this work? Do I get charged and then get a bill credit every month? 

Thanks
