NewBingeOnTileMagenta9Although T-Mobile’s Binge On program has had its share of controversies, the “Un-carrier” claims that its users don’t mind the optimization process that the carrier uses to decrease the amount of mobile data used. Even YouTube has come around to the popular unlimited data program (although after some rocky terrain back in December, the Google-owned video streaming service has elected to do its own optimizing rather than let T-Mobile handle it). Now even more content is landing on the service as Binge On adds Google Play, Spotify, and more.

Also coming to the program is NBC, Univision, and Qello Concerts on the video streaming side of things. Music lovers will get Radio Disney and TIDAL in addition to Google Play Music and Spotify. For many users, streaming music is one of the primary consumer of data. Adding two of the most popular mobile music service is big news for Binge On, which already supports SoundCloud, Pandora, Rhapsody, iHeartRadio, and Amazon Music. It seems like it’s getting harder and harder to find services that you can’t stream for free on T-Mobile. Here’s the list of newcomers according to the press release:

  • Google Play Music
  • Great Big Story
  • NBC
  • Kiswe
  • Ligonier Ministries
  • NOGGIN
  • Qello Concerts
  • Radio Disney
  • Univision
  • Univision Noticias
  • Spotify
  • TIDAL
  • Toon Goggles

For Google Play Music and Spotify fans who have been resorting to downloading playlists for the road rather than stream and waste precious data, this could finally be the stone that tips the scale for them in favor of T-Mobile. With streaming quality being less of a concern for music than it is for video, it seems as though the optimization process will be a non-issue. But what are your thoughts regarding this? Are you a Binge On music streamer? If so, let us know what your experience has been like in the comments.
