Among the loudest voices of critique when T-Mobile launched Binge On was the one and only Google, but it appears the 2 companies have patched some misconception. T-Mobile just announced a large growth of Binge On support, using one of the brand new choices are both YouTube and Google Play Movies.

Nowadays there are greater than 50 supported services for Binge On. Today’s additions include YouTube, Google Play Movies, Baeble Music, Discovery GO, ESNE TV, FilmOn.TV, Fox Business, KlowdTV, and Red Bull TV. For those who have Binge On enabled in your account, your video streams from all of these providers is going to be limited to 480p and will not count upon your data.

Google’s problem with Binge On initially was it “enhanced” all video, not only video from participants in Binge On. It was just straight throttling, that could cause buffering. The turn-around may be because of another change T-Mobile is making to Binge On. The carrier will allow video services to exempt their streams from Binge On optimization. Which means they are able to stream at full resolution not to mention, use more data doing the work. You may still turn off Binge On inside your T-Mobile account settings if you would like full-resolution video.
