T-Mobile expands ‘Binge On’ Free-Streaming Program With Apple Music, ABC, Dish, Fox, and More
The “uncarrier” T-Mobile has truly revolutionized the data plan monopoly in the United States. The company introduced the Binge-On service about eight months ago to users in an attempt to lower bills and better experience with high-speed data. The Binge-On service already includes big streaming giants such as hulu and Netflix, allowing users to enjoy all that content without having to worry about hitting usage limits. However, T-Mobile just made the service a lot better.
The company announced Tuesday in a blog post by CEO John Legere that it will be adding already popular services such as Dish, ABC, Fox Now, Disney, etc. to the list along with some other unpopular services. But the biggest highlight of the list was the addition of the Apple Music’s video service, which will allow many users to watch their favorite music video without thinking twice. And as the data will be high-speed, they can expect a crystal clear experience.

This is not T-Mobile’s first venture into the world of Apple, as the service already offered unlimited music streaming via Apple Music through its Music Freedom Program.
This announcement by Legere is a big hit to AT&T and Verizon, as the controversial CEO points toward Verizon and its Go90 program:
Unlike Dumb and Dumber, we actually work with our providers. We didn’t create a bullshit proprietary or competitive service that nobody asked for – and frankly, nobody really fucking cares about. Ahem, I’m looking at you, Verizon and Go90.
Here is a list of new video content providers added to Binge On:
- Apple Music
- Big Ten Network
- CEEK VR
- DISH Anywhere
- Disney Channel
- Disney Jr.
