T-Mobile says TVision Home will offer over 275 channels.


T-Mobile is launching a new version of Layer3 TV, rebranded as TVision Home, on April 14, the carrier said on Wednesday. 

TVision Home will offer more than 275 channels, 4K content and over 35,000 on-demand movies and shows. The service will cost $90 per month, with a $9.99 per month discount for T-Mobile customers, plus $10 a month per connected TV, T-Mobile said. 

This comes after T-Mobile in 2017 acquired TV startup Layer3 TV. The wireless carrier said the service will be a breakthrough for people who "love their TV, but hate their TV providers." TVision Home combines streaming TV and online video at a lower cost and won't restrict customers to lengthy contracts or bundles that include channels or content they don't want to watch, T-mobile said. 

The voice-enabled service can be connected to smart devices, such as those that use Amazon's Alexa or Google Assistant.  Amazon's  Prime Video will be offered through TVision Home for users with a Prime membership, T-Mobile said in a release.

The service will initially be available in the Chicago, Dallas-Fort Worth, Los Angeles, New York City, Philadelphia, San Francisco and Washington, DC, metro areas, as well as Longmont, Colorado. T-Mobile said it'll come to more markets later this year.
