Subscribers will pay about $100 a month for 150-plus channels, delivered through a box similar to those used by cable and satellite customers.
On the downside, you do now need a Vision set-top box to use the service and you will have to pay an additional $10 per month for any additional set-top boxes to add to other TVs in the same home.
T-Mobile hopes to change this and is reportedly "one step closer to taking on Big Cable later this year". T-Mobile explains it plans to expand to additional locations by the end of the year although details on which, or how many were not provided. The service will launch on April 14 in Chicago, Dallas-Fort Worth, Los Angeles, New York City, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Washington, D.C., and Longmont, Colorado, and T-Mobile subscribers can get a $10-per-month discount. In the early going, those customers will also be on the hook for $10 per month per connected TV.
The carrier today reiterated its plans to launch a nationwide streaming service later this year. The new TV viewing platform is T-Mobile's rebranded and upgraded version of its previously named Layer3 TV service, which is purchased in 2017.

The launch of TVision comes as T-Mobile awaits approval of its merger with Sprint and plans its rollout of 5G. "I can't wait to begin un-cabling cable and giving millions the opportunity to cut the cord with Big Cable forever".
The TVision Home service is a rebrand of Layer3's service, which is positioned as an alternative to cable or satellite TV in the US. Each customer can have his or her own profile to change up preferences, and there will be a bunch of apps available as well, including iHeartRadio, HSN, YouTube, Netflix, and more. Android and iOS apps are also planned so users can access the service from a smartphone or tablet.
TVision Home says it will use AI to suss out what viewers watch and want to watch - "TV that learns you" -and make that content easily available through the user interface. T-Mobile didn't say if it will eventually offer cheaper, skinny pay-TV bundles, but argued that its initial price compares to the average cable bill of $107.30 per month. According to T-Mobile US, 48% of US customers are locked into a contract and face paying hundreds in early termination fees. Not to mention that the price doesn't include any taxes, which could be anywhere between 4 percent and 20 percent of a bill's total.
It won't surprise you to hear that T-Mobile is playing up the tech angle. Thanks to a new agreement between T-Mobile and Amazon, even Prime Video will be available on TVision Home. TVision Home has more than 275 channels available, including 4K channels.
