by

T-Mobile announced today that its free unlimited music and video streaming programs Music Freedom and Binge On now support an additional sixteen services.

Music-Freedom-Binge-On
Binge On is a free incentive that enables T-Mobile customers on a qualifying Simple Choice plan to stream unlimited 480p video from dozens of partnered services, including Netflix, HBO NOW, Hulu, and YouTube, without any of the data consumed counting towards their plans. Music Freedom works the same way for streaming music services including Apple Music, Spotify, Pandora, and Google Play Music.


The new Binge On partners include Dailymotion, EPIX, OVGuide, OWNZONES, Viki, YipTV, and 120 Sports, in addition to the three Viacom Networks channels Nickelodeon, Spike, and TV Land. Likewise, the new Music Freedom partners include Amazon Music, Chilltrax, ESPN Radio, OHIO.FM, PreDanz, and Uforia. All sixteen new services are free to stream on qualifying plans starting today.

Update: T-Mobile is also offering up to $200 off any new iPad with the purchase of any new iPhone financed with an Equipment Installment Plan. In addition, the carrier is offering 4 lines with unlimited talk, text, and data, and up to 10GB of LTE data per line, for $35 a line. Both promotions start on April 6 and run for a limited time.

If it weren't for Music Freedom, I'd eat through the 10GB of data I get a month like it is candy in like two weeks.

With this, my data consumption is dramatically lower. Like, dramatically. And better yet, unused data carries over.

I'm so glad to be a T-Mobile customer.

Also, I might add I get ridiculous speeds like these:

The dude tells me: Oh, we just upgraded our entire network so signal strength should not be an issue anywhere! Do you have an iPhone 6s? No? Well, to use the upgraded network you need a 6s due to its upgraded chipset.

Yeah.

/nonsequitur.

To their defense, the iPhone has a terrible antenna compared to pretty much every Android (and Windows Phone, for that matter) device. The 6s is only a step up due to band 12 LTE support.

When I came back to the States in December, I went with T-Mobile because they had better "unlimited" data than the other companies, and because of their Binge On feature. I brought my iPhone 6 from abroad with me.

A few weeks later, a customer support person called me and asked if I minded answering some questions - am I satisfied, what could they do better, etc. I told them their signal strength suck balls. In my apartment building, which is all wood, I get 1 bar. Everywhere I go, I get 1 bar. In the T-Mobile store, I get 1 fricken bar.

Ask them for a wifi booster (rebranded Asus AC68U) so that you can get wifi calling in your apartment. I'm surprised they didn't offer this to you on the phone call.

T Mobile keeps getting better every day. I really can't wait to switch!

I haven't seen any improvement with coverage and was forced to switch to AT&T from T-Mobile this year.
