  • With Binge On, Sling TV subscribers with T-Mobile can enjoy
    unlimited streaming video with no data cap
  • T-Mobile customers can receive 30 percent off Sling TV’s ‘Best of
    Live TV’ package for the first 12 months, courtesy of T-Mobile
  • Sling TV, combined with T-Mobile’s unlimited video streaming, makes
    watching live TV relevant again

LOS ANGELES & ENGLEWOOD, Colo.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Sling TV today announced a major new agreement with T-Mobile, allowing
Sling TV subscribers to watch live sports, movies and other popular
shows on their T-Mobile smartphones and tablets without eating into
their LTE data. In addition, customers on a qualifying T-Mobile Simple
Choice plan who sign up for Sling TV can receive 30 percent off the
“Best of Live TV” package for 12 months as part of the exclusive Binge
On offer from T-Mobile.*

“T-Mobile’s attack on video streaming data caps, combined with Sling
TV’s delivery of live TV, including sports, will change the way
Americans embrace television,” said Roger Lynch, CEO of Sling TV. “This
agreement liberates live television: it’s no longer about the living
room — it’s now about where we are. To us, this shift is no less
transformative than when music became mobile.”

An hour of high-definition video uses up to 3GB of data, and an hour of
standard-definition video uses roughly 1GB. On other wireless networks,
that could push customers into overages or more expensive plans. With
Binge On, Sling TV subscribers can watch all the video they want without
worrying about using up their wireless data on qualified T-Mobile plans.*

Today, Americans want to watch when they want, how they
want and on any device they choose. More and more Americans are using
their mobile devices to watch video on the go. In fact, the majority of
millennials – 57
percent
− now watch more TV shows on their mobile devices than they
do on TVs.

“Today, T-Mobile and Sling TV are unleashing live TV for a new
generation of mobile viewers,” John Legere, President and CEO of
T-Mobile. “With Binge On, Sling TV subscribers are now free to watch all
the live sports and hit shows they want without ever burning up their 4G
LTE data. Today, we’re fast-forwarding into a future of sports and
entertainment where you can watch when you want, anywhere you want, as
long as you want. This is what’s next.”

Starting Sunday, November 15, Binge On will be available to all Sling TV
subscribers who are also Simple Choice postpaid customers. For more
