T-Mobile enjoys adding new additions either to their existing services or coming up with a new Uncarrier move to out do the competition and they’ve been pretty good at staying ahead of the game. Today, T-Mobile announced nine more video streaming providers to their list for T-Mobile Binge On. On top of that, T-Mobile is also giving said video providers more options to choose on how Binge On’s optimization will work for their content.

The nine new video streaming apps are, Baeble Music, Discovery GO, ESNE TV, FilmOn.TV, Fox Business, Google Play Movies, KlowdTV, Red Bull TV, and YouTube. Yes, finally YouTube is on the list of apps that will not count towards your data allotment. Altogether, T-Mobile offers more than 50 video streaming apps in just four months.

CEO John Legere even posted a comment about Binge On.

The facts are clear – Binge On is a runaway hit, and adding these services is just huge! Now T-Mobile customers can watch all of the videos they want from these platforms without even touching their high-speed data. Demand for mobile video is skyrocketing. Customers at the Duopoly can either stop watching or pay bigger bills and surprise overage charges. Only T-Mobile customers with Binge On have the option to stretch their data further at no extra cost! That’s the Un-carrier way!

As I mentioned before, video providers will have options as to how their content works with Binge On. Now the providers can have videos stream at native resolutions, including UHD and higher and won’t be optimized by T-Mobile and this will eat up customers data much faster. Of course, if none of the providers want to exclude their content from being optimized or streamed for free they will need to contact T-Mobile and meet certain requirements so the Uncarrier can identify their streams reliably. There’s another part of this update that will help providers. T-Mobile is working with these providers on giving them the ability to manage their video stream themselves. Instead of going through T-Mobile’s systems for video optimization, the video provider will automatically stream a mobile optimized video when a customer (on T-Mobile) starts streaming. YouTube will be first to start out with this option.
