After much consideration, Google (Play Movies) and its Youtube service is joining T-Mobile's Binge On service, bringing the total number of video services close to 50. 

Binge On is offered on an opt-out basis for T-Mobile's users with 3GB or higher data plans. The service which lets users stream video without it counting toward a customer's data plan was launched back in November last year with initial 24 services, including Netflix and HBO Go. 

The move by Google makes a change in its stance toward the Binge On service, as the company had earlier raised many concerns on the offering. Google in its blog said that, "We think these changes, which T-Mobile is making for all users and video providers on a non-preferential basis, can help ensure that the program works well for all users and the entire video ecosystem. As a result, YouTube and Google Play Movies & TV are participating in Binge On."
