Here’s how you can watch the T-Mobile Un-carrier X event live

uncarrier10invite

Today’s the day that Un-carrier X will be announced, and while the rumor mill has some ideas of what T-Mobile’s next Un-carrier move might be, nothing is official until Magenta says it is. You can watch John Legere and Co. reveal the Un-carrier X move live thanks to a livestream that’ll happen on Ustream.TV.

The event will officially kick off at 11:00 am PT/2:00 pm ET. T-Mobile has dropped hints that Un-carrier X might involve video, with the invitation for the event including the phrase “We never hit pause.” Well-known leaker Evan Blass has suggested that T-Mo may announce a service called BingeOn that’ll offer unlimited video streaming with Netflix, HBO, Hulu, and Sling.

Again, if you’d like to watch the reveal of Un-carrier X live and watch John Legere do his thing on stage, you can do so with the embed above or on Ustream’s website right here. If you can’t watch live, I’ll have a post with details on Un-carrier X as they become available.

So, are there any last minute predictions for Un-carrier X?

    How would this not have a negative impact on the data speeds for everyone on T-Mobile?

    • J Cav the Great

      This is my concern..especially if you live in a metro area..

      • 9to5Slavery

        you know they always will improve the network. And hopefully it will be bad enough to be better

    • logical

      they’ll just have to build up capacity. eventually, people are going to use more data. they just have to keep building. this goes for all providers

    • Tom@L

      yeah i am worried about this too.

    • Bruce Wayne

      It won’t. That is bullshit propaganda fed to you by these corporations as evidenced by the leaked documents from Crapcast.

    • JT

      The video is optimized for it.

  • Steven

    WatchESPN, PLEASE!!!!! That’s all I care about video related.

  • Alex Pilaia

    Free Weekly Movie tickets for all Simple Choice customers would be great!

  • Joey

    Maybe they’ll add a all in 1 unlimited video plan (Netflix,Hulu and other video services in 1 plan) Called “BingeON” + it doesn’t count against your data.

    Just a thought.

    • Steven

      That actually sounds the most plausible. And therefore, I would not partake, I’m a minimalist sticking to the 50 bucks a month 1 GB plan.

  • Joe

    Please let this not be free video streaming. It will murder the network.

  • kgraham182

    Give us freedom to roam. That would be the ultimate un-carrier decision, make deals with Verizon and AT&T so T-Mobile can detach itself from the reaches of wifi.

    • Steven

      That would defeat the purpose of the company as a whole, T-mobile would in a sense become the glue that stick ATT and Verizon in a glorified merger and T-Mobile would dissolve. Then we’d all get screwed by high prices. That would be an Uncarrier fail.

      • kgraham182

        You telling me Verizon, AT&T and Sprint don’t have roaming agreements

        • Joe

          Yeah they do but its the same shity type of roming t-mobile curently has with ATT

        • Michael Barnes

          verizon and sprint have the same thing tmobile just entered into the cca organization i dont know what agreements tmobile has agreed to yet if any with that

  • Steven

    What if its 5 GB directly toward video streaming, that wouldn’t necessarily kill the network.

    • GersonT1000

      Or maybe 10GB.

    • Right, I was thinking about something like that a few days ago.

  • Steven

    All I know, with all this build it, it better not be a let down. If it is, it would then turn into one of those failed attempts at being gracious and could even hurt the image of the “Uncarrier” in the short term

  • Erik Knudsen

    More anti-net neutrality services? Great, just what we need.

    is it going to be live on t-Mobile’s youtube channel as well?

  • kgraham182

    Woot Woot!!! T-Mobile is offering double unlimited. 2…6..10…

  • mreveryphone

    Free video streaming….T-mobile just changed the game again!!!

  • kgraham182

    BingeON is dvd quality aka 480P, no thanks I’m on an unlimited plan. I refuse to watch low quality video or listen to poor quality bitrate music.

    • pseudoswede

      Yes. Such a major difference between 480/720/1080p on a 5.5″ screen. Might as well be looking at a B&W TV.

    • itguy08

      It’s free. If you want full quality just go to the provider and watch there.

  • kev2684

    looks like BingeON is locked at 480p since neville didn’t answer the question of the Android Police dude. really weak considering all flagships including iPhones are at least 1080p with Android starting to get 4K screens.

    • Rene Shabastari

      Actually the iPhone 6s/6 and earlier are 750P and lower, respectively

      • Adrayven

        Not lower, 6 Plus and 6s Plus are 1080p.

        • Rene Shabastari

          I’m not talking about the plus, I said 6s/6 and earlier iPhone models i.e. 5s/5c/5

    • Mark

      Holy crap are you actually complaining about unlimited video streaming at 480p on a 4-6″ screen?

    • Tom@L

      this is the catch for free streaming. They wont give you free unlimited streaming at 1080p and above ………

  • stuman74

    I have an older Simple Choice plan where my family lines each are getting 2.5 GB of data. Are they going to each get bumped to 5 GB? Or is this only for the newer Simple Choice plans?

    • pengko

      no. from what they are saying those under the 3gb will not get the freedom of unlimited streaming. But there is an caveat those that are lower than 3gb they say something about being able to “stream” 3 times more than your 2.5gb. In the questionnaire john sort of answered the question of 1gb data being able to stream 2gb worth of video.

      • Rene Shabastari

        I’m at work and can’t stream, do you know if they are excluding the grandfathered unlimited @ $20, I would hope not since I imagine 3GB is less than that monthly

        • stuman74

          My situation is similar. Of our 5 lines, mine (the primary) has that grandfathered unlimited $20 plan. The others are the 2.5 GB per line plans.

  • Mark

    I’ve never been more excited to be a T-mobile customer. Doubled tethering from 7GB to 14GB…free movie rental every month. I might sub to Sling TV now with 30% off.

    • Mr. White

      Know the website Mike put out for that offer? sling.com/tmobile?

  • Sidekicker89

    Does this work on older T-Mobile plans? I’m on a old Simple Select plan

    • Prode

      Maybe but I would say no.

  • Profoundsoup

    HAHAHAHA

  • NextYear

    YAY!! Free porn streaming.

  • D_Wall__

    This is great! Just waiting on Youtube!

  • Steven

    People are getting way too hung up on numbers when it comes to 480P. Our eyes can only take in so much detail on a certain size screen at a certain distance. we will hardly be able to see a difference if at all between 480P and 1080P. I promise.

    • yeah right

      there is def a different… 720p and 1080p not so much.

    • kgraham182

      If you can’t see the difference between SD and HD, you need your eyes check.

      • Prode

        100% agree. My wife just got new glasses for the 1st time in 5 years and can now see the difference with 1080p and 4k. There is a big difference from 480p to 720p to 1080p.

      • Jay

        Not on a 5.5 screen now if your talking about a reg TV then yes. Plus they will be reencoding it seems like it. So it could be a 720p source just re encoding it with H264. Just as yify did on there sources.

    • kev2684

      i don’t know what kind of phone do you have or how bad your vision is, but i can see the difference between 720p and 1080p, 480 is a no go on most phones today.

    • Steven

      People are missing my “certain size screen at a certain distance” statement. Go to http://www.rtings.com/ or the many “is 4K worth it ” articles on Cnet and see the distance to resolution calculator that displays the ideal distance for the ideal resolution so you don’t waste money on a benefit you cannot take advantage of. Its simple science. While there is a HUGE difference in all the resolutions used today, the size and distance variables keep this from being absolute. I have 20/15 vision (better than ideal 20/20) according to my last physical FYI.

    • Steven
  • Josiah

    I missed what he said about unlimited data and Binge on on whether we had a choice. Anyone want to fill me in and what they said? Also do us unlimited folks get the double hotspot data too?

    • JT

      You have a choice to turn Binge on or off. You get double hotspot.

      • Josiah

        Awesome. Thanks!

  • Jsun

    So what if it’s 480p, it’s free!!! if you can’t handle it then just pay for more data to watch it in higher resolution. They didn’t have to give this to us and it’s nice of them to offer it. more than an hour ago you had no reason to even complain about 480p with free streaming because it wasn’t offered. People should just be thankful to have it now.

  • javid

    im a little confused – why does the TMO twitter account and the TMO press release say “customers can watch up to three times more video from their data plan” ??
    If BingeOn is not counting towards your data allowance, what makes the data allowance last longer now? Is it because typical users may have been using these services for 30% of their data?

  • VernonDozier

    Well, I thoughtfully considered this new service.

    However, I’m dropping enough calls on the interstate and highways already. I can only imagine what this is going to do to the constrained network. I fully expect T-Mobile to abandon HDVoice and VoLTE because the company is already spectrum crunched. T-Mobile will have to go back to GSM for voice calls.

    My home internet connection won’t going to be used as a strategic wedge to provide new services the company wasn’t designed for, and can’t provide it’s partner brands, MetroPCS, WalMart, SimpleMobile and others. The idea of giving service these companies bill for, and I pay for for to the neighborhood or using office internet is simply bad business.

    The higher the structure, the greater the coverage.

    Quite frankly, I’m appalled that a European, multinational wireless company would ask its customers to donate up to 60MB of bandwidth to provide video to its customers and turn that into LTE Microcell service for its brand, and other brands also. The very idea that up to 16 people could be using my home and office internet bandwidth with a CellSpot on my home network is making me question why I’m a T-Mobile customer. I’m not a non-profit charity, my business isn’t either.

    While it’s been a great 17 years as a customer of the company but when it comes to being a carrier of phone calls and diversifying its service offering, “UnCarrier” makes me wish I stuck with a Coke or Pepsi.

    It’s that time… Time to say “Sayonara” to T-Mobile. The rates are not reasonable, and I need a reliable network which doesn’t drop every 3rd sentence. Considering all the customers who left AT&T and Verizon, I believe it’s time to consider the switchback trail.

    • Steven

      VZ or ATT plant. Nothing stated ^ is valid

      • VernonDozier

        Hardly.

        Thanks, Steve. What store do you work at? I’d like to cancel my iPad service with you; I think you’d be honored to cancel the BAN.

        • Steven

          No employee, just a customer and fan for a years since the Uncarrier movement.

  • VernonDozier

    My home internet connection won’t be used as a strategic wedge to provide new services the company didn’t design the network for, and can’t provide ME, nor it’s partner brands, MetroPCS, WalMart, SimpleMobile and others service. The idea of donating service, and I pay for the neighborhood to use, or my office, is simply bad business.

    The higher the structure, the greater the coverage. It’s real sad that T-Mobile has to adopt individual customers internet to provide coverage.

    Quite frankly, I’m appalled that a wireless company with offices in Europe, partially owned by the German Government would ask its customers to donate up to 60MB of home internet bandwidth I pay for to provide video to its own customers. It effectively turns my home internet bandwidth into a LTE Microcell service for the German brand, and other MVNO brands it seems it can’t support.

    It’s that time… Time to say “Sayonara” to T-Mobile. The rates are not reasonable when I am also asked to bear the costs of supplying service to 16 users. I need a reliable network which doesn’t drop every 3rd sentence. Considering all the customers who left AT&T and Verizon, I believe it’s time to consider the switchback trail.

  • kgraham182

    You can watch 3x more video with the same data plan, cause the quality of the video is compressed 3x it’s regular sizes. Which means poorer quality.

    • javid

      your answer doesnt explain the lasts 3x longer… if the whole poing of BingeOn was to not use your data allotment for video – it must mean only for these 12 or services they have for now as TMO must be seeing these 12 provide 30% of their data usage?
