Following on its deal
with Viacom
last week, T-Mobile also announced they will launch
nationwide streaming services later in 2019 as the Un-carrier brings its
disruptive approach – listening to customers and solving their pain
points – to cable & satellite TV (aka the Cableopoly).

“The Un-carrier has already changed wireless for good… and today’s news
brings us one step closer to taking on Big Cable,” said John Legere, CEO
of T-Mobile. “And with the New T-Mobile, we can do more than just offer
home TV service … we can offer millions of Americans more choice and
competition for TV AND home broadband. I can’t wait to begin un-cabling
cable and giving millions the opportunity to cut the cord with Big Cable

Meet TVision Home
TVision Home builds off the
innovations in Layer3 TV and delivers an upgraded, premium TV experience
for the 74% of American households still using traditional cable or
satellite TV. TVision Home delivers what customers want most from
high-end home TV with more HD premium channels available than anyone
else, and the most 4K channels included at no additional cost. That’s
275+ available channels and over 35,000+ On Demand movies, shows and
more, plus on-screen social content, a personalized home screen and DVR
for each user, smart speaker voice control with Amazon Alexa or Google
Assistant, and even access to your security cameras.

Check it out!

  • TV That Learns You: Traditional
    TV is completely impersonal, but TVision Home changes all that with an
    AI-driven personalized UI that gets smarter the more you watch. And it
    remembers more than what you watch…it remembers when you
    watch it, and where you watch it, serving up your favorite
    shows based on the hour and location.
  • Personalized Experience for the Whole Family:
    TVision Home boasts a personalized experience for everyone in the
    house, with an individual DVR, home screen and profile for every user,
    so you record only the shows you want – multiple programs at
    once! You get a massive 1 terabyte of storage – that’s 400+ hours of
    DVR in HD.
  • Smart Home Connected with On-screen Social
    TVision Home is connected to your digital
    life and your devices. View a slideshow of your Facebook videos and
    picture, check your Twitter profiles, use your voice to control
    TVision Home with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant, and monitor your
    front door with access to your security cameras, all right from your
  • Streaming & Cable Together:
    TVision Home launches with apps for Pandora, iHeartRadio, XUMO,
    CuriosityStream, Toon Goggles and HSN. And with an open platform, more
    apps are coming soon, including Netflix, YouTube, YouTube Kids and more!
    And, T-Mobile will soon release a companion app for iOS and Android,
    allowing you to stream all your TV to your smartphone anywhere in the

BS-Free TV
Because TVision Home is from T-Mobile, there are
no hidden fees, no bill creep or exploding offers, no annual service
contracts and no crappy customer service. BS-Free TV means:

  • 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.
  • No Hidden Fees. Big Cable
    loves fees like Broadcast Fees, HD fees, Activation fees and Early
    Termination Fees. And, all those fees add to as much as 40% of a cable
    customers’ bills — that’s up to $737 a year in hidden fees1!
    Not with TVision Home. Our straightforward pricing doesn’t have pages
    of extra fees, so you’ll never experience bill shock again.
  • No Bill Creep or Exploding Pricing.
    Traditional cable and satellite TV locks consumers into a two-year
    contract with one rate, and then – surprise! – after the first year,
    they get “thanked” for their loyalty with a bill that’s up to 144%
    higher2. DirecTV Xtra is advertised at $55/month, but in
    year 2 of the contract, it’ll cost you $124/month – and that doesn’t
    even include the $8.49/month regional sports fee or all the other
    fees. With TVision Home, your price stays the same, unless you change
    it. Period.
  • One consistent price for a full channel
    TVision Home launches at $90/month
    (including a $9.99/month discount for T-Mobile customers … but
    available to everyone for a limited time) which includes 150+
    channels, local broadcast, regional sports and more. Plus $10/month
    per connected TV, including your whole-home DVR for a limited time.
    Any premium TV packages – like HBO, Showtime and others – or on-demand
    rentals and purchases are extra. Compare that to the average cable
    bill of $107.30/month.

Satellite Freedom
Nearly half (48%) of pay TV customers are
locked into a contract and face paying hundreds in early termination
fees. With Satellite Freedom, T-Mobile is tackling the #1 reason
customers stay shackled to TV providers they don’t like: early
termination fees. The Un-carrier will pay off those fees, up to $500 via
a prepaid card, for any Dish and DirecTV customers who make the switch,
freeing millions locked into long-term contracts with steep cancellation
fees. Goodbye fees, hello freedom.

Cable-Free, Box-Free Future
TVision Home is part of
T-Mobile’s 5G strategy and vision to give consumers real options to the
cable companies, and that starts with the Sprint merger. Today, almost
half of the country’s households (45%), and more than three quarters of
rural households (76%) have no high-speed service (100 Mbps average) or
only one option for high-speed broadband3.

But if the merger is approved, by bringing together T-Mobile and Sprint,
the New T-Mobile will have the scale and capacity to create a
supercharged 5G network capable of reaching over half the country’s
households with high-speed broadband by 2024.

And while TVision Home uses your existing wired broadband today, TVision
Home is IPTV designed for a 5G future where wireless broadband can
replace your home internet. That means millions can finally free
themselves from the Cableopoly once and for all.

“TVision Home is about so much more than home TV… it’s TV built for the
5G era,” said Mike Sievert, COO and President of T-Mobile. “With New
T-Mobile, we’ll bring real choice, competition, better service, lower
prices and faster speeds…right into your living room. And – speaking of
speed — while the Cableopoly innovates at the pace of the cable
companies, we’ll innovate at the pace of the internet to give customers
more value and more freedom more quickly.”

TVision Home launches with a cable box today, but core to the
Un-carrier’s TV strategy is that TVision works with the apps and
hardware and services people already use. T-Mobile also unveiled plans
to launch TVision on popular third-party TV platforms in the future.
That means getting TVision will be as simple as downloading an app and
picking from a variety of low-cost home or mobile subscriptions – no
extra box or equipment required.

TVision Home will be available on April 14 in T-Mobile
and online
in Chicago, Dallas-Fort Worth, Los Angeles, New York City, Philadelphia,
San Francisco, and Washington DC metro areas, as well as Longmont CO.
