This week T-Mobile announced that they will have an announcement on August 15th, 2018. What exactly they plan to announce is still unknown but rumors are starting to fly that we may get an update on their new TV service. Well, that is possible we just don’t know right now. What we do know is they plan to make some kind of announcement on August 15th, 2018.
Back in December 2018, T-Mobile announced plans to launch a “disruptive” TV service. Since then there have been hints that T-Mobile was struggling to get deals something that has reportedly still been an issue. So it is also just as possible that this has to do with their 5G plans or some other product.
So what exactly is T-Mobile working on when it comes to their TV service? Here is what we learned about T-Mobile’s new live TV streaming service from their new website:
Why is T-Mobile offering a TV service?
We see a huge opportunity to disrupt and improve another important market that currently mistreats consumers, and Layer3 TV has an awesome team and great technology to help us do that.
Why Layer3 TV?
Layer3 TV is stacked with talent and great technology to create something truly new for people who love TV and improve the way we watch everything.
Will big content providers work with you?
Absolutely. Layer3 TV already has access and relationships with hundreds of channels, and we intend to leverage those relationships to build future offerings.
Will you bundle your new TV service with wireless?
We don’t believe in carrier bundles where you’re forced to pay more for things you don’t want. Instead, we always look for innovative ways to deliver great services to our customers.
Do I have to have T-Mobile wireless to get TV from T-Mobile?
No. Our vision is to launch a TV service that will work on any device with an Internet connection.
Will people in rural areas be able to use your TV service?
Our vision is that our new TV service will work on any internet connection, so yes—people can use it even if they don’t have T-Mobile coverage in their area, YET.
For now, that is all we know about the new T-Mobile live TV streaming service. At this point, T-Mobile is likely finalizing contracts, device support, and more. It is possible they don’t know exactly what the new service will look like.
