Say what you will about the degraded video quality of Binge On, or the odd ball missing music services, it doesn’t change the fact that T-Mobile hasn’t pushed some boundaries and some buttons. Today they have announced that they are sittingÂ at over 100 services between the two included programs. Pushing them over the top was the inclusion of Amazon Music, ESPN Radio, Uforia, Dailymotion, EPIX, Spike TV and TV Land to name a few. Lets cut to John Legere for the scoop.
Since Music Freedom launched, T-Mobile customers have streamed 90 billion songs for free.
Today, T-Mobile customers are streaming 210 million songs every single day without using a drop of high-speed data.
With Binge On, T-Mobile customers are watching 2x more from free streaming sites on plans with limited data and have streamed over 190 million hours of video for free.
With Music Freedom and Binge On together, T-Mobile customers have saved over 350 petabytes of high-speed data.
â€œItâ€™s a fact â€¦ Un-carrier Data is different than Carrier Data. Itâ€™s better! Nobody does data like T-Mobile!â€ said Legere. â€œUn-carrier Data is not only faster, it lasts a lot longer than the other guysâ€¦ As of today, you stream unlimited music and video from over 100 providers – without ever touching your Un-carrier Data or worrying about overagesâ€”and you can stash what you donâ€™t use for later. Try that with Carrier Data. Itâ€™s gone in a flash, and youâ€™re getting hit with penaltiesâ€”or they repossess it after a month or two. Ridiculous!â€
All of this really makes the looming threat of unlimited data leaving T-Mobile in the near future a semi silly thing to upset about. Certainly there are plenty of users doing plenty of other things to gobble up tons of data, but a fair amount is generally always video and streaming music services. I know that’s usually a bulk of my data anyways.
