T-Mobile Uncarrier X Announced

T-Mobile on Tuesday unveiled its new “Un-carrier X” initiative called “Binge On,” a new plan that will let you stream some of the most popular video services over its network without counting against monthly data limits. T-Mobile is starting off with 24 of the most popular video streaming services and it says it’s open to any other video provider that wants to join in. T-Mobile also says that it doesn’t charge any money to video services so smaller players don’t have to worry about getting priced out of the program.

Included among the 24 apps that will be supported at launch are Netflix, Hulu, Showtime, HBO Go and Sling TV. Two noticeable absences from the list are YouTube and Twitch, which are hugely popular in the gaming community. T-Mobile says that it is working to bring YouTube on with the system as well, although it didn’t give any timeframe for when we can expect to see it.

T-Mobile customers who sign up for new Simple Choice plans can start streaming these 24 video services uncapped starting Sunday, November 15th. All existing T-Mobile customers will get access to Binge On starting on November 19th.

Here’s the full list of streaming services that will be supported at launch:
