Report: Facebook looking to become a T-Mobile Binge On provider

Report: Facebook looking to become a T-Mobile Binge On provider
T-Mobile subscribers might soon be able to view Facebook video without using any of their own high-speed data. The nation's third largest carrier is reportedly in talks with Facebook to have the social networking site added as a Binge On provider. Currently, there are nearly 90 such providers whose videos stream at DVD quality resolution (480p). While a subscriber can disable Binge On, doing so will make him or her responsible for the data used to stream video.

According to those familiar with the situation, both sides are making sure that Facebook's videos can be tagged by T-Mobile and marked as a Binge On video. It appears that this technical issue is the main stumbling block preventing a deal from being closed.

While many wouldn't necessarily associate Facebook with video, the site has been adding live video capabilities that allow it to compete with other sites like Periscope and YouTube. The latter is already a Binge On provider, and that puts pressure on Facebook to become one too.

T-Mobile and Facebook have both declined to comment on this report.

Off topic/on topic, I love Under Armour clothing, it's the only sportswear I wear these days. Super comfortable, not too expensive, and fits great.
