T-Mobile on Thursday confirmed it has added more video streaming services to its Binge On. Available now are Amazon Video, Fox News, Univision NOW, and WWE Network.
Binge On, which lets users stream video over its 4G LTE network without affecting data allotments, delivers a “DVD quality or better” picture. T-Mobile customers can toggle on and off the service, opting to watch 1080p or even 4K content if and when it’s available. The opt-in and opt-out feature now provides the same streaming capabilities to more than 40 content providers.
In addition to adding the four new partners, T-Mobile is making it easier for its subscribers to toggle Binge On. As some of you may already know, it’s possible to use the short code of #BOF# and #BON# to turn it off and on, respectively. Further, T-Mobile has also punched up its website (t-mobile.com) and mobile apps to quick toggling even more simple for users.
