T-Mobile has been letting customers stream music without it counting against their data plan for about a year now, but the carrier’s next step might remove video from the data equation as well.

A tip from usually-accurate rumormonger Evan Blass points to an unlimited video streaming announcement at the wireless operator’s Nov. 10 Uncarrier 10 event.

If the latter tweet proves true, that would set unlimited video streaming apart from the Music Freedom program, which currently only lets customers stream from about 30 sources including Spotify, Apple Music, Google Music and all major streaming services. However, if it’s from a limited number of sources, the plan might not be as appealing.

While getting streaming content from for-pay streaming services like Hulu, Netflix and HBO would definitely be good for the consumer, video is invading many other apps as well, including auto-playing of videos within Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. But it might be harder for T-Mobile to separate video data from other data on social networking apps.

T-Mobile isn’t commenting on the report. T-Mobile CEO John Legere told people to “keep trying” on Twitter (where else?) after the rumors started flying. But he’s happy to see people guessing about his company’s latest moves.
