On Wednesday, T-Mobile announced its latest consumer-friendly plan that no other American carrier do: it will no longer counts video streaming apps against your data usage. The carrier unveiled a new system named Binge On. With its new Binge On system, T-Mobile users will be able to watch any amount of videos/movies from certified apps which are already part of the Binge On program without having to worry about consuming all their data. Binge On will start with 24 apps in the program which includes: Netflix, HBO NOW, HBO GO, Hulu, Sling TV, Sling Box, ESPN, Showtime, Starz, Movieplex, Encore, T-Mobile TV, Vevo, Vessel, Univision Deportes, Major League Baseball, Go90, DirecTV, Fox Sports, Fox Sports GO, NBC Sports, Crackle, VUDU, Ustream. T-Mobile says that more apps will be added to the list in future, as any video streaming app-owner can request their app to be added to the program.
The program will be available on November 15th to any new or existing customer with 3GB data plan or larger. Think this will not have benefit on you because you have unlimited data? Wrong. This will get passed to your mobile hotspot and you will be able to stream videos on your laptop or other device.
