    • On-Demand passes can be purchased with refill cards or prepaid service account balances.
  • One-Day HD Video Streaming passes may be available in the US on the T-Mobile network only.
    • Prepaid HD Streaming passes do not have a resolution cap.
    • HD streaming  is not available when roaming in Canada, Mexico, or while roaming.
