The additional streaming perk is on top of T-Mobile’s bundling of Netflix (either the Basic or Standard tier, depending on a customer’s mobile plan) and TelevisaUnivision’s ViX+ for unlimited wireless customers and its offer of on free year of Paramount+ in addition to discounts on YouTube TV and Philo.
Terms of the expanded deal between T-Mobile and Apple for the Apple TV+ giveaway are not being disclosed. Typically in such arrangements, the distributor (i.e. T-Mobile) pays a wholesale per-subscriber fee to the content provider (i.e. Apple).
