T-Mobile US on Tuesday announced free video streaming for 24 media sources including Netflix Inc., HBO and Hulu.
T-Mobile Chief Executive Officer John Legere unveiled the new offer that lets subscribers watch videos from selected providers without having to pay extra in data charges.
“Customers want reliable video,” Legere said during an event in Los Angeles. He went on to criticize the current quality of mobile video and said his rivals are trying to grow by charging users more for video streaming.
T-Mobile has been on a tear lately, adding at least 1 million new subscribers in each of the last 5 quarters. The company recently passed Sprint Wireless to become the third largest wireless carrier in the United States.
T-Mobile has also revealed that it will double the data allotments on customer plans at no extra cost.
