As revealed by Randall Stephenson, the chief executive officer of AT&T, the major US wireless carrier is planning to officially launch DirecTV Now, its online video streaming service, some time in the last quarter of 2016. He also took the opportunity to hint that the feature will come with over a hundred premium channels and aggressive price points.
T-Mobile's Binge On service is on a roll right now. The video streaming feature has recently added 16 new video content providers, which means that as of latest count, the service now has over a hundred partners delivering zero rated video content to subscribers of the third biggest wireless carrier in the United States.
During this year’s VidCon (an event focusing on the online video market) held in the city of Anaheim, California, YouTube took the opportunity to reveal that it has added a live streaming feature to its mobile app. It appears that live streaming features have become the rage right now, with Facebook touting its Live feature while Twitter has its Periscope, and YouTube would do well to join in on the program.
Here we go again. T-Mobile’s Binge On feature has once again found itself the target of a particular group criticizing its service. According to a team of researchers from the Northeastern University from Boston, Massachusetts, not only does the Binge On service break net neutrality rules set by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), it also apparently delivers video content of inferior quality compared to what T-Mobile has promised.
Looks like it, at least according to a report released by Recode. The third biggest wireless carrier in America is reportedly in the midst of discussions with Facebook in order to bring the social media giant’s video services (including FB’s live video feature) to T-Mobile’s Binge On.
T-Mobile adds yet another set of new partners to its Binge On service. Indeed, the third biggest wireless carrier in the United States has announced that it is adding video content from PBS and PBS Kids, as well as a number of other providers, including Azubu, Dailymotion Games, and Eyegroove, and also online gaming streams that feature League of Legends and Hearthstone, just to name a few.
Netflix has recently revealed that the updated version of its app for both Android and iOS mobile operating systems now allows users to control how much data the app uses, that is whenever users access Netflix using their smartphones or tablet devices.
AT&T has recently released its earnings report for the first quarter of 2016, registering revenues of $40.5 billion (or $0.72 a share), a figure that represents a significant improvement over the $32.6 billion it posted during the first quarter of 2015. This number also comfortably surpassed projections set by industry watchers from Wall Street. Analysts had expected the second biggest wireless carrier in the United States to report a profit of $0.69 per share.
