Earlier this year T-Mobile announced that they would be launching a live TV streaming services. To help with that goal they purchased the TV company Layer3 TV. Now T-Mobile is rolling out Layer3 TV in several new markets and now offers the service in Dallas, Chicago, Washington, D.C., and Longmont, CO.
If you are a T-Mobile customer, you can get the service for $79.99, but non-customers have to pay $99.99. If you want the Platinum allHD package which includes more than 275 channels, on-demand, 4K, and DVR it will cost you $120 per month or $80 per month if you are a T-Mobile customer.
Now, this is not the live TV service T-Mobile has promised to launch. It looks like T-Mobile is trying to cash in on their investment into Layer3 TV by expanding its footprint to make more money. T-Mobile still says they plan to launch a disruptive live TV streaming service by the end of 2018, but for now we will have to wait and see what happens.
