T-Mobile expanded its Binge On video-streaming program for the fifth time since its November launch, enabling consumers to stream video from more than 80 video services without dipping into their high-speed data buckets.
In early April, the carrier announced the expansion of Binge On services to 62, and in March, T-Mobile announced an expansion to more than 50 services.
Binge On launched in November with only 24 video-streaming providers. The program reduces the resolution of streaming services to DVD quality. In return, subscribers don’t incur data charges when they stream the video from participating Binge On services. From nonparticipating streaming services, subscribers can fill their high-speed data buckets with three times more video than before.
The newest services participating in Binge On include Great Big Story, NBC, Kiswe, Ligonier Ministries, Noggin, Qello Concerts, Radio Disney, Univision, Univision Noticias and Toon Goggles. The music videos of Google Play Music, Spotify and Tidal are also now available.
Other participating services include Google Play Movies, YouTube, Sling, Hulu, Netflix and HBO Now.
Also in early April, T-Mobile announced the addition of six more music-streaming services to its Music Freedom program to 42 participating streaming services. Music from participating music services can be streamed without the used data being counted against a subscriber’s data cap.
