T-Mobile's Binge On now lets you binge on unlimited porn

When T-Mobile CEO John Legere said he wanted any capable video provider to join the Binge On program, he really meant it. T-Mobile recently added several new content providers to Binge On, the program where videos from certain streaming providers don’t count against your data cap. One hush-hush new addition alongside YouTube and Google Play Movies was MiKandi, an online X-rated app store and streaming service.

Starting now, T-Mobile customers who also subscribe to MiKandi Theater can get DVD-quality porn streamed over T-Mobile’s network for free, as Engadget first reported. MiKandi Theater is a $20 per month porn video service geared towards mobile devices.

Mikandi is celebrating T-Mobile’s decision as a victory for free speech. “When mainstream tech companies announce new platforms it tends to be another way to censor your online experience,” MiKandi CEO Jesse Adams said in a company blog post. “T-Mobile is treating adults like adults and we hope that other tech companies follow in their footsteps.”

Don’t count on it—though T-Mobile should definitely be applauded for its even-handed treatment of Mikandi.

The story behind the story: Most people are well aware that pornographic content is widely available online. Yet it’s rare to see such mainstream support for a pornographic service like this. Not surprisingly, T-Mobile didn’t exactly shout the addition of MiKandi from the rooftops. The “ un-carrier” mentioned MiKandi anonymously stating that BingeOn was adding “Google Play Movies, KlowdTV, Red Bull TV, YouTube and more.”

For MiKandi subscribers on T-Mobile, the Binge On treatment is good news since you no longer have to worry about data caps when getting your, um, binge, on.
