T-Mobile has announced the U.S. carrier is adding a further 16 providers to its Binge On program, which essentially enables subscribers to enjoy select services and streaming platforms without using up any data on their plan. The company boasts more than 100 services on this program, allowing customers to enjoy 765 million hours of video for free so far.

Here's the full list of newly added providers:

  • Disney Jr.
  • Disney XD
  • D-PAN.TV

  • This violates Net Neutrality principles, doesn't it? Posted via the Android Central App
  • The idea of net neutrality is to prevent special treatment that a content provider buys into such as if you have Hulu and Netflix and Netflix pays the ISP (example Comcast) for preferential treatment such as packet shaping in favor of their traffic. This provides an unfair advantage to Netflix as if Hulu and Netflix are streaming at the same time Hulu's throughput will degrade first. In the situation of Binge-On T-Mobile is throttling traffic speed to any of the Binge-On partners but the data passed is not counted against the users data cap. Now I'm not sure if company's are buying into Binge-On, but as far as I can tell from my testing, there isn't any packet shaping in favor for Binge-On traffic compared to other traffic that doesn't fall within the Binge-On group. Lastly Binge-On is able to be disabled by the user if the user wants higher resolution/throughput on the streaming service. As far as I know packet shaping on the aforementioned preferential treatment example wouldn't be able to be disabled.
  • It's not necessarily about the exchange of money, but for an ISP to either prioritize or slow down one content provider over another.
  • I would think that if this did violate NN, that T-Mo would have been sued by now... if not by certain content providers, then at least by the other wireless carriers to make them look bad.
  • It's the grayest of gray areas.

  • Regarding net neutrality, I believe that would be if they gave these providers some priority or speed advantage, but if they're treated like any other traffic I don't think eliminating them from your data data usage limits constitutes a violation. Interesting question, though. ...Joe K.
  • Good god, net neutrality comments's simple. Opt out or opt in. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I second this. "HOW DARE T-Mobile help us save data and cost, only if services opt-in and we want to as well!!!!!"
  • You have to look at it from a different point of view, if unlimited data plans were causing their networks to bog down or become slow. Then how come this "binge" isn't doing the same? Seems like they have plenty of capacity to handle unlimited data, but are just limiting it because they can.
  • +1000
  • It's the haters or ppl with a Tmo agenda that's saying that.
    This is totally transparent, and it's a feature u can easily opt-in/opt-out of. What Tmo did was carve a new path (all within the rules mind you) that the other 3 carriers easily could have done. Shoot, if verizon and the others did this it would be good for everyone. Less traffic wold be the result.
    The verizon unlimited plan recent issue wouldn't even be an issue if they had a similar program in place.

  • I'm so tired of reading all these net neutrality comments every time. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Dude. I agree. It's a bunch of 22 year old kids who pick up buzzwords and think they know ****. These kids don't know crap about business, let alone Wireless. It's all about screwing over the "Evil Carriers". Like the Apartment complex they live in isn't screwing them harder on utilities, or the cable company or a 100 different other ways that severely impact the consumer. None of it is helped by ACs mostly young staff writers, some of whom aren't even US based. Posted via the Android Central App

  • Time to change my plan from unlimited to 6gigs. I never use data really anymore with these binge on/music freedom providers. Thanks TMobile!
  • Cool breeze, all plans are unlimited data. Posted via the Android Central App
  • If I remember correctly your handle use to be Droidsarethebest prior to this handle. No, Tmobiles plans aren't all unlimited.
  • The person probably forgot to mention from unlimited high speed data to 6GB high speed data to lower the cost of their current plan.
  • Good deal.Now,for those that want to,get back to crying and whining about net neutrality,and have a good day. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I wonder when Sprint will be incorporating something similar to this. Posted via the Pokemon Central App
  • Beig, when they have a Network that is not outdated.
    Premium data and Sprint are to never be used in the same sentence Posted via the Android Central App
  • They have been testing the plans for about a month now in Two markets. Expect to see a rollout for Back to School. I've seen them and they suck, just like the Sprint network in California. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Tmobile is a Great company! All they do is give to there client's!..The only perk you get from Verzion and AT&T is GRIEF! and a HIGH PHONE BILL!!!.. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Love it. #TeamFrosty Nexus 6P
  • Yes T-Mobile rules! I was on AT&T grandfathered in Unlimited Plan then my kids needed phones and AT&T obviously couldn't give them the Unlimited Plan at the time so I opted out of my Unlimited Plan got us all on the Family plan what a mistake! Kids went over all the time then kept raising over charging me so I said screw it switched to T-Mobile and have us all on the 6-10 GB plan no more overage charges and they can Binge on Music, Video's and Social Media all they want no more me getting ticked off at my kids and if they did go over their data slows down on their phones not mine! :p
  • Love TMO out there Posted via the Android Central App
