T-Mobile's Binge On OTT service challenges other carriers to a data duel

T-Mobile threw down a gauntlet in front of other wireless carriers, announcing at its Uncarrier X event in Los Angeles that it will launch Binge On, a new mobile OTT streaming service that features content from 24 services including Netflix, Sling TV, Hulu, Crackle, WatchESPN and more. The kicker: It's free to any customer who subscribes to its 3 GB or higher monthly plan -- and streaming won't cut into that data allowance.

The announcement gave CEO John Legere an opportunity to call out rivals AT&T and Verizon, which rolled out its go90 streaming service last month. FierceWireless Executive Editor Mike Dano was on site at the T-Mobile event and has all the details here.
