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