Cell phone providers are competing to offer unlimited data plans, offering incentives geared to get customers to switch companies.

Good Morning Tucson anchor Samantha Cortese reports T-Mobile is now offering free Netflix service for those who sign up for the T-Mobile One plan with at least two lines. The cost is $120 a month. Netflix costs in the range of $10 a month, meaning users will save about $120 a year.

AT&T is offering HBO service for those who use its Unlimited Plus plan, which costs $90 for one line and $145 for two. HBO costs $15 a month, so the plan could add up to savings of more than $150 for fans of the premium channel.

Verizon and Sprint also offer unlimited data deals that aren't tied to particular TV incentives.
