Stream Videos Without Consuming Data With T-Mobile's Binge On
Streaming TV shows and movies via services such as Netflix, Hulu and HBO Go would more than likely spell more data charges for its users. In an effort to avoid paying more data charges for its users while receiving high-definition movies and shows, T-Mobile, one of the largest carriers in the United States, is allowing its subscribers to stream video from video streaming services without taking it against their data allowances.
T-Mobile said that its customers will now be able to watch movies and TV shows with resolutions of 480p and above from a multitude of streaming services without taking even a chunk out of their data plans. Netflix, HBO Go, HBO Now, Hulu, Sling TV, ESPN, the company's own T-Mobile TV, DirecTV, Ustream and many more make the list. It will reportedly cost nil starting this Sunday for those who transfer to T-Mobile's new Simple Choice Amped plans.
T-Mobile calls this new feature 'Binge On'. As its name suggests, this would allow users to watch shows continuously as it gives its users unlimited access to a big list of video services for free. Furthermore, T-Mobile also wants to add more to that list should they pass the company's requirements.
The new feature from T-Mobile works similarly to the company's Music Freedom that lets its subscribers stream from popular services including Spotify, Google's very own Songza, Pandora, iTunes Radio and many more without charging them with data usage.
However, the new feature raised a few concerns as well about Net Neutrality, and how the company will be handling the data it carries from its partners. John Legere, CEO of T-Mobile said that it isn't a "Net Neutrality problem," and Neville Ray, the company's CTO even pointed out that the carrier isn't going to prioritize partner data and instead will optimize the video with its proprietary tech.
