T-Mobile in a press release published today said that they have added more avenues of video streaming to its Binge On platform, and also revealed that Binge On customers’ video watching has more than doubled.
The carrier’s Binge On service has been the subject of much controversy, garnering attention from Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) and others on T-Mobile’s claims that it isn’t throttling video streaming, just “optimizing” it.
However, as we all know, there’s no such thing as bad press. According to T-Mobile’s press release, and despite all of this controversial attention, the carrier says that Binge On customers are viewing video more than ever before. T-Mobile didn’t offer specific and concrete details, but said that customers’ are watching twice as much as before.
Additionally, T-Mobile Binge On customers can now watch Amazon Video, Fox News, Univision NOW, and the WWE Network without cutting into their data allotment. The four additional services bring the carrier’s total up to more than 40 video streaming services supported.
T-Mobile did provide some interesting statistics. In addition to customers watching twice as much video than before Binge On, the carrier reports that its customers have watched over 34 petabytes of data. In contrast, that’s over 34 million gigabytes of data.
Binge On is an opt-in program, only eligible to customers on qualifying and postpaid plans with 3GB of data or more.
The carrier also recently updated its Simply Prepaid Plans to add more value for your dollar.
