BEACON TRANSCRIPT – According to a recent report published by T-Mobile, since the Binge On service became available, customers are streaming twice as much video on their mobile devices. T-Mobile hails Binge On’s accomplishment, stating that the service is a great way for customers to cut back on their phone bill.
If you don’t know what Binge On is, here are a couple of fact regarding the service. Let’s say that you want to watch your favorite show online. Naturally, you would connect to the Internet via a Wi-Fi connection. But there are times when you can’t find an open Wi-Fi connection. The next logical step would be to fire up your mobile internet connection in order to watch your favorite show.
Using your mobile data is great if you can’t find an open Wi-Fi connection, but it also doubles up your phone bill. But with the Binge On service, you won’t have to worry about inflated phone bills. The whole idea of this service is to let a user stream high-quality videos on the internet, without tapping into their monthly mobile data allotment. Sounds cool, doesn’t it?
But wait, there’s even more to come. Magenta (T-Mobile) has just announced that they’ve introduced 4 more streaming services to Binge On. As of now, T-Mobile customers will be able to stream to 40 different sites without having to worry about a bigger phone bill. The 4 new streaming services are Amazon Video, Univision NOW, Fox News and the WWE network.
In addition to the four new streaming services, Binge On features easier routines for enabling and disabling the service. Note that only T-Mobile customers with a 3GB speed can access the free service.
So, in order to enable or to disable the Binge On service, the users has to press a few buttons and press call. Thus, if you want to verify the status of the service, call #264#. If you can’t access the service, then take your handset and dial #266#. And if you don’t want to use the service anymore, just dial #263#.
T-Mobile hails Binge On’s accomplishments. Since the service was launched, the customers are streaming twice more than before. Moreover, even if the Binge On service is free, the quality of the streamed videos remains unchanged. As of now, if you are a T-Mobile customer and you bought a 3GB data plan, you are free to use the service.
