T-Mobile expands Binge On, now includes nearly 90 video streaming services
T-Mobile today announced that its free video streaming program Binge On is expanded ones again. T-Mobile expands Binge On to nearly 90 video streaming services. New services that carrier has added to Binge On are Azubu, Dailymotion Games, Eyegroove, PBS, and PBS Kids. This is the sixth expansion of Binge On since seven months ago, November 2015, when program launched.
T-Mobile’s Binge On program provides completely free video streaming on mobiles and tablets from participating video streaming providers. Videos are compressed at DVD quality (480p) and streaming isn’t counting against users’ high speed data. Since the launch of Binge On service, T-Mobile users have streamed more than 500 million hours of video, according to T-Mobile. Also, customers are watching up to 2 times more video content from participating video content providers.
Binge On can be turned on and off easily since T-Mobile has added short codes, and provided easier access to controls through MyT-Mobile.com and T-Mobile app.
T-Mobile Binge On on Prepaid
Besides postpaid customers, prepaid T-Mobile customers who are on Simple Choice prepaid plans with 6GB of data and up also have access to Binge On. Those plans include the $65/6GB, $80/10GB and $95/unlimited data plans. However, there is a benefit for $50/2GB plan users as well. Streaming compressed videos use three times less data than watching videos at full quality even though plans’ high speed data are being used up.
T-Mobile’s Simply Prepaid plans also benefit from compressed video streaming but feature is called differently, Data Maximizer. Just like $50/2GB Simple Choice prepaid plan users, those who are signed in to Simply Prepaid plans will save data, up to three times, while watching videos.
T-Mobile owned MetroPCS also offers Data Maximizer on all of its prepaid month plans, $30/1 GB, $40/3 GB, $50/5 GB and $60/unlimited plan while T-Mobile’s MVNO Walmart Family Mobile provides the same service but it’s called Data Saver. Data Saver is available on all of Walmart Family Mobile’s plans for a limited time.
