Binge On® how-tos

Learn steps for Binge On, including turning it off (or back on), as well as steps for redeeming your monthly movie rental from Vudu.


Managing your Binge On settings

As a T-Mobile customer, Binge On is automatically enabled so your data will stretch up to three times further when you are streaming video. You do have the option to turn it off (or back on) at any time. If you disable Binge On, video streaming is no longer optimized, resulting in your 4G LTE data being consumed faster, and all video streaming will count toward your high-speed data. You're free to disable Binge On at any time, and then enable it again whenever you like. It's your choice.


If you decide to turn it off, you should stop any video streaming before you make a change to your Binge On status.
