In my tiny little corner of the world, we get very few perks with any of our mobile plans. No unlimited calls, no unlimited texts, and lots of limited data. That hasn't stopped an enterprising local music service from convincing carriers to offer an unlimited streaming plan only on their app for a small fee. That goes to show that people may not care about calls or texts anymore, but there's always room for offers when it comes to entertainment.
T-Mobile has been trying to pioneer that area in the US and (politics and legalese and execution aside) has managed to get really good deals for customers who might be interested in them. I am such a music and TV show addict that I wish I lived in the US and could benefit from "free" data usage on some streaming services, even if it meant a loss in the quality of the stream. And it looks like many more users feel the same way, or at least enough for T-Mobile to keep pulling strings and adding partners to its Music Freedom and Binge On offers.
The new services joining T-Mo's Music Freedom are Amazon Music, Chilltrax, ESPN Radio, OHIO.FM, PreDanz, and Uforia. As for Binge On, you can count DailyMotion, EPIX, Nickelodeon, OVGuide, OWNZONES, Spike, TV Land, Viki, YipTV, and 120 Sports among the latest additions. It's no YouTube or MiKandi porn, but there are some big names (and some small niche services) in that list, and you can watch T-Mo's colorful CEO John Legere make the announcement in the video below.
