It's getting harder and harder to find popular streaming services that aren't part of T-Mobile's zero-rated Music Freedom and Binge On programs. Today, the company announced that over 100 services are now participating across both, with new additions that include Amazon (Prime) Music, ESPN Radio, Nickelodeon, EPIX, and Dailymotion. The rest of what's new is a list of fairly obscure stuff, but that shows how far T-Mobile has quickly come in adding the stuff people actually use to its two Uncarrier perks.

On the Music Freedom end, CEO John Legere said, "We've got more than 40 services, and our customers stream over 210 million songs every single day without ever using any of their high-speed data. Our customers have streamed 90 billion songs for free since we started Music Freedom." And today's expansion of providers for Binge On — the fourth since the effort was announced in November — brings the number up to over 60 services. As usual, Legere also tore into rivals Verizon and AT&T, claiming that "Uncarrier data" lasts longer and gets customers more for their money. He also yet again brought up the Netflix 360p controversy, though rather than blame Netflix for secretly limiting viewing quality, he's still shifting the burden to his competitors in the mobile business.
