Evil Angel Wants to Offer T-Mobile Users Unlimited Porn.

On Tuesday, T-Mobile announced at its 10th “Uncarrier” event in Los Angeles that it will stop counting video streaming from certain services against customers’ monthly data allotments. T-Mobile US Inc said on Tuesday it will give customers a new option to stream video from services including Netflix Inc on their mobile devices without having it count against their data plans.

T-Mobile USA will exempt a list of video streaming services from monthly data caps with Binge On, a feature that could let some subscribers watch more clips and shows without buying a more expensive plan.Beginning on Sunday, Nov. 15., all new and existing T-Mobile customers with at least 3GB of data per month will be able to stream unlimited videos without cutting into their plans if they watch them at lower bandwidth, the carrier announced today (Nov. 10).T-Mobile Chief Executive Officer John Legere, poking at larger rivals Verizon and AT&T, unveiled the new offer that lets subscribers watch videos from selected providers without having to pay extra in data charges.

According to Rich Brome of Phone Scoop, Legere said the uncapped plan was “open to any porn sites that want to join.” That “sounds like a great opportunity,” said Adam Grayson, Evil Angel’s CFO. T-Mobile’s move adds to earlier promotions like free music streaming, data rollovers and cheap international roaming that have attracted more than 1 million new monthly subscribers in each of the past five quarters. While “Binge On” may be a win for customers, it could also limit a major revenue stream for the “un-carrier.” Customers consume increasingly more mobile video content, but with “Binge On,” they won’t need to increase their data plans in step with usage or risk paying overage fees. “This is actually incredibly good for investors,” said Legere at a press event. “The profitability impact to us is gigantic in a positive sense, not only from a customer standpoint but from an efficiency utilization of our network.” The move comes at time when many wireless providers, hoping to extract added revenue from customers using data-guzzling apps such as video-streaming services, are coaxing them into upgrading to plans with larger data buckets. Binge On comes with a virtual toggle switch so users can go back and forth as they wish, T-Mobile President and CEO John Legere said at a launch event streamed online.

Grant Castle, T-Mobile’s VP of engineering services, said that Binge On’s optimizations can work with Web-based as well as app-based video, so providers don’t actually need an app. Not counting certain content against data caps has raised net neutrality concerns among some critics who worry the practice could give entrenched content providers an edge over new and smaller competitors.

If you’re eating up your data allotment (or you’re on Wi-Fi) you can stream at whatever resolution you want, but if you have Binge On enabled you’ll be stuck at 480p. To tap revenue from advertising and data usage, Verizon launched a mobile video streaming service “go90″ last month aimed at millennials with content partners such as the National Football League and the National Basketball Association. But even without formally being part of the Binge On family, porn viewers—as well as everybody else—will find their bit bucket goes farther on T-Mobile.

The network will optimize all video it detects, whether from partners or not, down to 480p unless users opt out, using less data than it would otherwise. T-Mobile says it has advanced software to distinguish video from other types of data but it can’t pick out certain kinds of streams, such as those that use the HTTPS secure Web format. Also, this will enhance and improve the way we can deliver video across our network,” T-Mobile Chief Marketing Officer Andrew Sherrard said in an interview. As part of a series of initiatives in the past three years, it has eliminated service contracts and allowed users to roll over unused data into their next billing cycle.

The carrier’s Music Freedom service, introduced earlier this year, has grown to cover more than 95 percent of music streaming services, the company said. The carrier is exploring new compression technologies that should allow higher resolution with the service in the future, said Neville Ray, T-Mobile’s CTO. If they meet our requirements, we’ll investigate the feasibility of adding them.” And just to emphasize that this isn’t paid prioritization, T-Mobile adds, “No one pays to join and no money is exchanged.” It’s certainly better than an arrangement where streaming companies have to buy in, but it’s still a situation in which a carrier (the mobile version of an Internet service provider) is incentivizing customers to use some services over others. Subscribers who still have unlimited data plans also benefit from Binge On, because it gives them unlimited streaming when using the phone as a mobile hotspot, T-Mobile says. Starting in January, those subscribers will also get one free video rental per month from the Vudu service. “If offering exemptions is so easy for T-Mobile, why do we need the caps in the first place?” Free Press Policy Director Matt Wood said in a prepared statement. “Exemptions for selected streaming-video services prove there’s no legitimate reason to impose data caps.”
