Today, during an event held to announce Un-carrier 9.0 − Un-carrier for Business − T-Mobile (TMUS) unveiled two new major Un-carrier initiatives for consumers. First, with T-Mobile’s new "Un-contract," customers will now have more certainty in their wireless pricing than ever before. Consumers and businesses with the Simple Choice rate plan will find that rates won’t go up as long as they’re a T-Mobile customer and keep their plan − and even customers with unlimited 4G LTE will lock in their rates for a minimum of two years. The Un-carrier also launched "Carrier Freedom," a new move where T-Mobile will now cover all outstanding phone and tablet payments up to $650 per line when customers from AT&T (T), Verizon (VZ) or Sprint (S) switch to T-Mobile.

Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer said in a Wall Street Journal interview that the company is closing a $375M financing agreement with Hunan TV & Broadcast Intermediary that may boost its ability to screen films in China. Hunan will fund 25% of Lionsgate production costs over a three year period which the Journal notes could total $1.5B, though popular franchises "Hunger Games," "Divergent," and "Twilight" are not covered.
