T-Mobile announced it will now be streaming free videos for customers subscribed to HBO, Hulu, Netflix, SHOWTIME, Sling TV, STARZ, and WatchESPN among 24 other stations; and the beauty of this latest innovation is that customers won’t have to burn up data to watch these stations.
T-Mobile made the disclosure at the 10th Un-carrier event in Los Angeles, California, and the free video streaming will start this Sunday. Meanwhile, it is also available to all customers of Simple Choice, including new subscribers, on qualifying plans.
To make this work smoothly, the plan for Simple Choice was updated by doubling the data levels and cutting any extra gig expenses, giving customers and families the benefit of getting double data at no extra cost when they get extra 4G LTE data – with about 302 million Americans now using 4G LTE network, the fastest in the nation.
“Un-carrier X marks the next step in this revolution, and it is massive,” said John Legere, President and CEO of T-Mobile. “Today, we’re not only doubling your data in Simple Choice, we’re making your data work a lot harder for you! With Binge On, video streams free from 24 streaming services to start, and more to come! Only T-Mobile would find a way for customers to watch unlimited HBO, Hulu, Netflix, Sling TV and more…without eating into their LTE data, while the Duopoly is squeezing consumers with overage fees and over-buying! T-Mobile is un-leashing entertainment and giving customers exactly what they want!”
According to T-Mobile, customers that use the new Binge On technology can now enjoy free streaming videos when they subscribe to Crackle, Encore, ESPN, Fox Sports, Fox Sports Go, HBO Now, HBO Go, Hulu, MLB, Movieplex, NBC Sports, Netflix, Sling TV, Sling Box, SHOWTIME, STARZ, T-Mobile TV, Univision Deportes, Ustream, Vessel, Vevo, and VUDU without ever consuming their 4G LTE data when they are on the Simple Choice plan with extra data.
To this extent, any streaming video provider that has the required technology will be able to use Binge On to reach a wider audience; meanwhile, video streaming providers do not need to pay any fees to join the program. “With Binge On, no one pays—not the customers, not the video streaming services—and everyone wins,” said CEO Legere.
Binge On is built into T-Mobile’s network to deliver optimized video for mobile screens without consuming data, yet viewers enjoy quality DVD resolution of 480p or better. Customers will be able to watch three times more video on their existing data plan – and they are also free to subscribe to or even deactivate Binge On for any of their lines within the My T-Mobile account, as a mark of customer choice.

With $50 per month of unlimited data for one line, customers can sign up to the Simple Choice plan on T-Mobile and be able to call or text on 4G LTE network. For this, customers will get 2GB of 4G LTE data – double the previous amount they got on each line. Additional add-up of one more line will be for $30 per month and yet with 2GB of 4G LTE data; and more lines of up to 12 will be for only $10 per month and each has 2GB of 4G LTE data.
