The UK mobile carrier, EE, has announced that customers on its Smart and Full Works plans can get Netflix inclusively as part of the package. With regards to the Full Works plan, this wasn’t available on Android prior to today, only on iPhones, but now all customers can choose it and receive three Smart benefits including Netflix, Apple Music, BT Sport Ultimate, and a Roam Abroad Pass.
Commenting on today’s news, Sharon Meadows, Director of Propositions at EE, said:
“We’re constantly looking for ways to offer our customers the best experience when using our award-winning network and as part of this we look to partner with the most innovative companies in the world. By joining forces with Netflix, customers will now be able to access a wealth of high quality video content in more places than any other network. We’re also extending our Full Works plan, so customers with Android smartphones can experience the very best of what EE has to offer in one convenient mobile package.”
Customers who choose Netflix as their Smart benefit will receive the Netflix Basic plan which would normally cost £5.99 per month. EE said that customers won’t be restricted to watching content on their small screen but can also watch on a smart TV for a more immersive experience. If you’d prefer Netflix Standard or Netflix Premium, you can pay an additional £4 or £8 respectively to get these and their perks.
If you already have a Netflix account, choosing the Netflix smart benefit won’t cause any problems. Once the Smart benefit kicks in, your existing payments to Netflix will just stop and EE will pick up the cost. If you opt for the Standard or Premium tiers, the top-up fees will just be added to your EE bill.
