Binge On is automatically enabled so your data will stretch up to three times further when you are streaming video, unless a provider chooses to opt out. If you disable Binge On, video streaming will no longer be optimized and video resolution will default to the highest available based on the streaming service (e.g., HD). This will also result in your 4G LTE data being consumed faster, and all video streaming will count toward your high-speed data. Of course, you are free to disable Binge On at any time, and then enable it again whenever you like.

Before you make a change to your Binge On status, stop any video streams.

You still benefit with Binge On! When Binge On is enabled, you’ll get all the benefits of unlimited video streaming on your smartphone, and when you use your phone as a mobile hotspot, you can stream YouTube, Netflix, Hulu, HBO, Sling, ESPN, SHOWTIME, Starz, and other participating services for free, without counting against your Smartphone Mobile Hotspot.

Absolutely nothing. Every Simple Choice customer can watch up to three times more video with their data plan with Binge On enabled. If you have 3GB of data or more, stream from your favorite steaming services like YouTube, Netflix, Hulu, HBO, Sling, ESPN, SHOWTIME, Starz, and more for free, without using your 4G LTE data. The more data you have, the more benefits you get.

Yes, with T-Mobile, families never share data. Each family member gets their own ability to stream unlimited. Families can experience Binge On benefits automatically and control settings for each line independently.

Yes, you can stream unlimited video from YouTube, Netflix, Hulu, HBO, Sling, ESPN, SHOWTIME, Starz, and more without ever using your 4G LTE data, and you’ll get up to three times more video streaming from your data when streaming video on almost all other services with Binge On enabled. Binge On works great to stream video to your tablet or even when you use your tablet as a hotspot to watch a movie on your laptop.

It looks great. Binge On optimizes video quality for smartphone screens. It provides a great DVD-quality experience (typically 480p or better), which can also minimize buffering and maximize quality while using a fraction of the data. But it is your choice. If you want a higher resolution data experience, you can always choose to turn off Binge On; however, you will no longer have the ability to stream for free from participating streaming services, or have video optimized for your smartphone screen, resulting in higher usage of your high-speed data.

For best performance, leave any video streaming application set to its default resolution setting, because most video applications will automatically adapt to Binge On. Attempting to set your video streaming service to a specific resolution while Binge On is enabled may degrade performance and lead to buffering. If you want to view video at a specified resolution, you can disable Binge On and turn it back on when you like.
