Un-carrier adds sixteen new services to Binge On and Music Freedom,
including Amazon Music, ESPN Radio, Nickelodeon, Spike, TV Land and more
Bellevue, Washington — April 5, 2016 — T-Mobile (NASDAQ: TMUS) today launched another major expansion to both Music Freedom and Binge On, the Un-carrier’s wildly popular music and video streaming initiatives. Starting today, Amazon Music, ESPN Radio and more music services stream free for T-Mobile customers, and Dailymotion, EPIX, Nickelodeon, Spike, TV Land and more video services are joining the list of providers streaming free to T-Mobile customers on qualifying plans with Binge On.
With today’s additions, more than 100 music and video services now stream free to T-Mobile customers, including Amazon Video, HBO NOW, Hulu, Netflix, SlingTV and YouTube as well as Apple Music, Google Music, Pandora, Rhapsody and Spotify.
In his latest video blog, T-Mobile CEO and president John Legere underscores how Music Freedom and Binge On have radically changed the way T-Mobile customers watch video and listen to music:
- Since Music Freedom launched, T-Mobile customers have streamed 90 billion songs for free.
- Today, T-Mobile customers are streaming 210 million songs every single day without using a drop of high-speed data.
- With Binge On, T-Mobile customers are watching 2x more from free streaming sites on plans with limited data and have streamed over 190 million hours of video for free.
- With Music Freedom and Binge On together, T-Mobile customers have saved over 350 petabytes of high-speed data.
“It’s a fact … Un-carrier Data is different than Carrier Data. It’s better! Nobody does data like T-Mobile!” said Legere. “Un-carrier Data is not only faster, it lasts a lot longer than the other guys… As of today, you stream unlimited music and video from over 100 providers - without ever touching your Un-carrier Data or worrying about overages—and you can stash what you don’t use for later. Try that with Carrier Data. It’s gone in a flash, and you’re getting hit with penalties—or they repossess it after a month or two. Ridiculous!”
Over the past three years, T-Mobile has rolled out a steady drumbeat of Un-carrier moves to change wireless for good – and then “amped up” several of those moves. Taken separately, these moves have fixed major customer pain points and created incredible value. Taken together, they represent a real consumer revolution in wireless and created fundamental differences between Un-carrier Data and data from the carriers. Un-carrier Data not only rides on the nation’s fastest LTE network, but it also comes with unlimited music and video streaming from participating providers, no overages, worry-free roaming and the ability to stash your unused data to use up to a year later.
