T-Mobile CEO John Legere announced a new service offered to the cellular provider’s customers called “Binge-On.” The new service allows T-Mobile customers to stream an unlimited amount of video from selected services that do not count against the subscribers data limits. If you had taken advantage of T-Mobile’s promotion last year for unlimited 4GLTE you wouldn’t be needing this current offering, but that was then and this is now.

You still can’t stream videos from YouTube or most other non-premium streaming services, but this is a big leap forward that helps differentiate T-Mobile as a service provider, and also is a big boon for the subscribers of premium services like Netflix, Hulu, Sling, ESPN, and more.
The way that this works is that data from the pre-selected sources will not count towards the device user’s plan limit. So if you have a 5GB monthly data plan, you will still be able to use all of the 5GB of 4GLTE data on surfing the web and playing games on your phone. While streaming videos, you will still get that same 4G speed where available, and it won’t deduct from your 5GB. This is great for binge watching on the bus, or slacking off at work.
Many are concerned that offering such an un-metered service to their cellular customers could reduce the functionality and fair use of the internet for other service’s subscribers, but John Legere just don’t care. In fact, it may be the other cellular providers who are most upset, because they have been cultivating their clients mindsets into limitations, contracts, and paying out the ying yang for conveniences. T-Mobile re-invented itself a few years ago as the Un-Carrier, and they have been doing a fantastic job of being refreshingly different in a number-crunching, contract-signing atmosphere.
