PBS, YouTube Gaming, and others join T-Mobile’s Binge On program
These newcomers include PBS, YouTube Gaming, Azubu, Dailymotion Games, Eyegroove, and PBS Kids. These services join the ever expanding ranks of the T-Mobile family which now includes Netflix, HBO, YouTube, Hulu, and Amazon Video. Heck, there’s even a porn streaming service in the mix. The ‘Uncarrier’ reports that their users on the Binge On program, unfettered by data restrictions, stream twice as much video as other mobile phone users. Since the launch of the program, T-Mobile reports that customers have streamed over 500 million hours of video.
There’s no question that this service has been a controversial move by the carrier, with many crying concern for net neutrality. Accusations of throttling have also made headlines, and YouTube was reluctant to join the program, acquiescing only after an agreement was reached that they would ‘optimize’ their video streaming content on their own, independent from T-Mobile.
Love it or hate it, it seems like Binge On is here to stay and growing larger with each passing month. But what are your thoughts on the polarizing service? Are you a T-Mobile user who takes advantage of it on the regular? Let us know in the comments below!
