T-Mobile unveiled an overhauled version of its TVision television service on Tuesday morning, along with a new TV streaming device, launching a new challenge to the cable industry and jumping into a crowded and competitive field of video platforms.
The carrier has already been moving into the TV market with the acquisition of Layer3 and the subsequent launch of TVision Home last year. However, that was closer to traditional cable, with a price tag starting at $100 a month and availability limited to select markets. (T-Mobile also offers free Netflix with some family plans.)
The new TVision lineup is more affordable and more broadly available. TVision will launch with three different services. The first, TVision Live, features live sports and news and starts at $40 a month. There are different packages available here, with the lowest-cost entry sporting more than 30 channels and including ABC, FOX, and ESPN. Other tiers including a $50-a-month TVision Live TV+ option with more than 10 additional channels, and a TVision Live Zone with additional live sports channels.
The cheapest option is TVision Vibe, which includes more than 30 channels of live and on-demand content including AMC, BET, Discovery, Food Network, Hallmark, HGTV, MTV and TLC, and which costs $10 a month.
Then, there's TVision Channels. It's an a la carte streaming service platform similar to Apple TV Channels. Users will be able to access other services, like STARZ and EPIX, for one fee and with one login.
TVision services will become available for existing T-Mobile customers on Nov. 1. It'll then rollout to legacy Sprint customers later in November and to prepaid customers in 2021.
