T-Mobile Adds Live Soccer to Binge On Amid Allegations of FCC Violations

serieaAlthough there are more and more ways for soccer fans in North America to watch their favorite game, it’s still tough to track down your team in between all the football (American, that is) and other sports that we all obsess over.

T-Mobile has decided to jump on the bandwagon of the growing popularity of the sport after this summer’s Women’s World Cup and the World Cup of summer 2014. As part of their Binge On service, which offers subscribers up to 3 GB of high definition viewing. They’ve just added fubo.TV to the list of video providers. Fubo TV streams live games from La Liga, MLS, Liga MX, Serie A, Football League Cup and Primeira Liga, starting this week. Fubo.TV co-founder & CEO David Gandler is excited to offer some fans an easier way to watch:

Working with T-Mobile affirms our commitment to deliver an unparalleled experience, not only from a content perspective, but also now from a streaming position. We will continue to seek out bold, new relationships that drive significant value to our fast growing subscriber base.

Fubo.TV is also available to those not on T-Mobile’s service via desktop, Amazon Fire TV, Android phones and tablets, Apple TV, Chromecast, iPad, iPhone, Kindle Fire, Roku.

T-Mobile’s Binge On service has been generating controversy of it’s own, with some suspecting it to be in violation of FCC’s net neutrality rules because it’s possible throttling video that’s not coming through a Binge On partner.

In response to those criticisms this week, T-Mobile CEO John Legere released an video statement and then an open letter to apologize if he came on too strong:

I don’t filter myself, and you know that no one at T-Mobile filters me either (no, they don’t even try). That means I will sometimes incite a bit of a ‘social media riot’, but I’m not going to apologize for that.

Feel free to binge on the UEFA cup, then, but take note if you’re YouTube starts to get a little funky.
