T-Mobile announced in a statement today 14 new partners joining their Binge On lineup of on-demand streaming content. New options include cable TV standards like A&E, Lifetime, and History, as well as digital content providers including PlayStation Vue. The new services build on a library of content that launched last November and includes Netflix and HBO streaming for qualified users.
Binge On is one of T-Mobile’s latest Un-carrier moves, offering high-quality video streaming that doesn’t cut into users’ monthly LTE data allotments, and apparently one of their most successful to date. Video streaming is said to be up 12% overall, with some seeing as much as 66% boosts in traffic. One of the best aspects of Binge On is its price. It’s not an option or add-on, but rather a standard part of all of T-Mobile’s Simple Choice plans, giving unlimited streaming access at no extra cost (outside of your regular subscription fees to the digital content providers of your choosing).
The full list of new channels includes:
- PlayStation Vue
- Tennis Channel Anywhere
- Kidoodle TV
- Curiosity Stream
- ODK Media
- Lifetime Movie Club
And T-Mobile says it is currently working with at least 50 additional content streaming services for addition to Binge On in the future. Seems like a pretty god time to be a T-Mobile customer, we’d reckon.
