You can have your T-Mobile promotion of two unlimited-data lines for $100 a month or your free Netflix, but you can’t have both. 

Buried in the fine print of T-Mobile Us Inc.’s announcement Wednesday of free Netflix for unlimited customers is a caveat - customers who signed up for the $100 special price, offered since March, won’t be getting the streaming-video perk. If they want it, they’ll have to start paying the $120 list price for their plan. Since Netflix costs about $10 a month, that’s not such a hot deal for those customers.
