T-Mobile TVision -- New Live TV streaming service

T-Mobile announced today the launch of its new streaming service, TVision, and streaming device, TVision HUB during today’s Un-Carrier event. Highlights of the app include a live TV guide, network hubs, show & movie tabs for easy searching, and a Cloud DVR with 100 hours of storage. The device features customizable channel rows with personalized recommendations, casting ability, and a Google Assistant button on the included remote.


T-Mobile is launching one app, TVision, with three streaming services. Each has its own price point, package options, and channel lineups. Here are the options:

TVision Live
  • TVision Live TV: $40/month got news, sports, and entertainment, including many local affiliates. You’ll get three simultaneous streams and 100 hours of Cloud DVR.
  • TVision Live TV+: $50/month for everything above plus 10 extra channels.
  • TVision Live Zone: $60/month for everything above plus 10 more channels including NFL Network.
TVision Vibe TV: $10 for 30 channels including movies, drama, reality, and more.

TVision Channels: Add in ala carte premium channels (Showtime, Starz, and EPIX)

The T-Mobile TVision app will be available on iOS and Android, Android TV, Apple TV, and Amazon Fire TV, along with T-Mobiles new streaming device, TVision HUB. Roku is notably missing from this initial list.

TVision Hub

In addition to launching the TVision app, T-Mobile is launching the TVision HUB, a new Android-powered device. The device includes a remote control and the company says it will support over 8,000 streaming, gaming, and music apps. The HUB will retail for $50.

TVision will launch next week, starting with T-Mobile customers. Sprint customers will be able to sign up later in November, and the service will open up to all customers in 2021.

Comparing Services

The TVision app will allow users to subscribe to multiple services – TVision Live, TVision Vibe, and TVision Channels. There are multiple package options within those three services. We’re comparing them all in the charts below (divided by service to make them easier to read.)

Combining Services

TVision Live, TVision Vibe, and TVision Channels are each available as standalone services. You can subscribe to just one service, or subscribe to any combination of packages to get all the channels you want.

Note that TVision Live, TVision Vibe, and TVision Channels each have their own channel lineups. To get additional channels, you’ll need to combine services. For example, AMC is only available with the TVision Vibe service. If you subscribe to a TVision Live package, you’ll need to add a subscription to TVision Vibe to get AMC in your lineup.

A maximum of 2 concurrent streams is available for TVision Vibe. A maximum of 3 concurrent streams is available for TVision Channels. All three TVision Live packages include 3 simultaneous streams and a cloud DVR feature with 100 hours of DVR storage. If you’re subscribed to TVision Vibe or TVision Channels, you’ll need to also subscribe to a TVision Live package to get access to the Cloud DVR.

If you subscribe to any combination of services, you will get a maximum of 3 concurrent streams.Customers will only be able to watch multiple TVs simultaneously while within the same home.

How to Watch

T-Mobile TVision currently supports both Android and Apple mobile devices, as well as streaming devices including T-Mobile’s own TVision HUB, Android TV, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Google TV, and some smart TVs like Android TV and Fire TV Edition TVs.

Re: T-Mobile TVision -- New Live TV streaming service
"Notably, the TVision Live lineups are missing CBS broadcast networks, and T-Mobile does not offer HBO or HBO Max — from AT&T’s WarnerMedia — as an a-la-carte option. The carrier’s OTT services also are not available on Roku devices at this point.

Regarding the absence of CBS local stations in the product, Gary said customers are able to subscribe to CBS All Access (which will be rebranded Paramount Plus in 2021) separately from TVision. “Those who want that full CBS experience can get it for $5.99 per month, and so they have that choice,” he said. T-Mobile is looking to add Roku support for TVision in the future, Gary added, and may consider exploring bringing HBO Max into the lineup."

Interesting, but I’ll stick with Hulu Live. I do like more competition though. Makes other streaming services create more value.

Hulu has the value of original programming, but it’s missing MTV, Comedy Central, and AMC.

Same, Hulu Live is still the best option for me.

I forgot this even existed, and I'm a T-Mobile customer. Zero advertising even aimed at us. Weird.

We had a thread about it here as well, but T-Mobile also had a $90/month starting point TV service that ran off the internet. It was formerly Layer 3 TV


I guess that service eventually merged into this one as I don't see it advertised anymore. Wow, T-Mobile was 0 for 2 on live TV services. I remember them saying this would be game changers. :lol:
