Mobile launches overpriced "TVision Home" cable TV competitor for $90 per month

T-Mobile Announces a New TV Service Called T-Mobile TVision in 8 Cities TVision Home is T-Mobile’s new TV service, launching April 14th

T-Mobile has yet to launch its streaming TV service, which the carrier should have done late past year. T-Mobile plans to launch its own cable television solution, TVision Home.

Not cheap As a full-freight offering out of the chute, TVision Home won't come cheap - it's launching at $90 per month. To start, TVision is available in Layer3's footprint of the Chicago, Dallas-Fort Worth, Los Angeles, New York City, Philadelphia, San Francisco and Washington, DC metro areas, as well as Longmont, Colorado. More cities will soon join in on the fun.

T-Mobile is going heavily after satellite TV subscribers with its Satellite Freedom offer, which will pay off early termination fees (with up to a $500 prepaid card) for DirecTV and Dish Network subscribers who switch over to TVision Home.

This is where things get sneaky.

Now, we do. T-Mobile has officially launched its pay TV service, TVision Home.

In the future, T-Mobile plans to launch a TVision Home companion app for Android and iOS so that you can watch TV on your smartphone anywhere in your house. There are no contracts or limited offers that run out and jack your bill up. Firstly, pricing, T-Mobile US has been successful in the past by offering more for less, and secondly, the experience. Each connected TV with DVR costs $10/mo.

These prices are effectively locked-in with T-Mobile promising no price rises over time or hidden/additional fees.Therefore, although there's not much in the way of savings compared to what competitors are likely advertising today, T-Mobile argues they'll be no nasty end-of-promotional pricing kicking in. T-Mobile keeps saying in marketing materials that you get 250+ channels with TVision Home, but they don't seem to want to put a price on that channel bundle. You'll pay extra for premium material like HBO, Showtime and on-demand movies, although 4K channels are included as part of the base package. In announcing the launch, T-Mobile also noted that its pending merger with Sprint, if approved by regulators, would enable the combined company to offer 5G service to half of all of its USA households by 2024.

"With TVision Home, your price stays the same, unless you change it". And again, that's with the $9.99/mo discount that is only a "limited time" offer.

Along with traditional TV channels, T-Mobile says that streaming services like Pandora, iHeartRadio, Xumo, CuriosityStream, Toon Googles, and HSN will be available at launch, with Netflix, YouTube, and Amazon Video coming later. Unfortunately, not even the acquisition of Layer3 TV, a next-generation cable provider, helped the Un-carrier make all the necessary changes to offer customers a truly disruptive streaming TV service.
