Mobile will launch its streaming service TVision Home on April 14

TVision Home offers over 150 channels, including local broadcast and regional sports channels.

The problem is that TVision is both relatively restricted (you need to go through T-Mobile hardware to access it) and wildly more expensive than services like Sling TV, PlayStation Vue and YouTube TV, that range in price from $25 to $45 per month.

T-Mobile is also offering to pay off early termination fees from satellite providers up to $500 through its new Satellite Freedom program.

In addition to delivering a full-freight pay-TV service that Layer3 TV was already known for (a lineup of 275-plus channels, and a VoD library with more than 35,000 titles), TVision Home will also integrate Netflix and Amazon on its own 4K-capable set-top boxes.

Service will be available on April 14th in Chicago, Dallas-Fort Worth, Los Angeles, Longmont (Colorado), New York City, Philadelphia, San Francisco and the Washington DC metro area. You'll also pay $10 per month per connected TV which gets you a whole-home DVR.

The carrier today reiterated its plans to launch a nationwide streaming service later this year.

The service, which will initially be launched in eight U.S. cities on April 14, is the re-branded and upgraded version of Layer3 TV, the platform it acquired in early 2018. I can't wait to begin un-cabling cable and giving millions the opportunity to cut the cord with Big Cable forever, said John Legere, CEO of T-Mobile. Any premium TV packages - like HBO, Showtime and others - or on-demand rentals and purchases are extra. 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.

Dedicated Customer Care. TVision Home customers get a TVision-dedicated customer care team from the company that ranks #1 in wireless customer service satisfaction year after year. Furthermore, the carrier promised to release a companion app for iOS and Android, which will allow TVision Home subscribers to stream their TV to their smartphones anywhere in the house.

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.

No Bill Creep or Exploding Pricing.

TVision Home is T-Mobile's television service, a rebranded and upgraded version of the Layer3 TV product that T-Mobile bought previous year. If we take away the $9.99/month discount that's only available for a limited time, the service costs $100, not too far from the average of $107 that T-Mobile says American households usually pay per month for cable.

It won't surprise you to hear that T-Mobile is playing up the tech angle.

The TVision announced today is a product strictly intended for home use.
