ROK Mobile, an MVNO that operates utilizing three out of the four major USA mobile networks (Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile) has said that it is going to be offering its customers an unlimited video streaming service in the first quarter of 2016.

The service will be brought to consumers though a partnership with SeaChange International which will provide ROK Mobile with the mobile video content and an ability to offer its subscribers a personalized viewing experience.
ROK Mobile has not announced what the pricing will be for it's new video streaming platform, but it has said that it will be an added value it its current plan which already includes unlimited talk, text, music, and data with the first 5 GB being at 4G LTE speeds before throttling to 128 Kbps.
