T Mobile is also including Verizon’s Go90 and AT&T’s DirecTV streaming services on Binge On, so even the Duopoly’s video services stream without fear of overages.

Powered by new technology built in to T-Mobile’s network, Binge On optimizes video for mobile screens, minimizing data consumption while still delivering DVD or better quality (e.g. 480p or better), said T Mobile. The operator claims that its Simple Choice customers can watch up to three times more video from their data plan. 

John Legere, President and CEO of T-Mobile
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!
