T-Mobile announced today that it will be the latest company to enter the live TV business. The company has unveiled TVision, a new over-the-top streaming TV service designed to compete with the likes of YouTube TV and AT&T TV. It launches on November 1, with pricing starting at $10 per month.
The centerpiece of the T-Mobile network is TVision Live, which costs $40 per month and offers a lineup of channels including ABC, NBC, and Fox, alongside others like TBS, TNT, Bravo, and more. You can upgrade to TVision Live TV+ for $50 per month and add sports channels or to TVision Live Zone, which adds NFL RedZone among others.
Other TVision Live details:
- Cloud DVR included with all three tiers, up to 100 hours
- Three concurrent streams
- Optional TVision HUB available — An Android-powered HDMI device that connects to your home Wi-Fi and plugs right into your TV
In addition to TVision Live, however, is the $10 per month TVision Vibe. This service offers 30 live channels from AMC, Discovery, and Viacom. The limitation here is that cloud DVR access will cost an additional $5 per month if you’re interested in adding it.

Finally, T-Mobile is also competing directly with Apple TV Channels with its new TVision Channels platform. Here, you can purchase standalone subscriptions to Epix ($5.99 per month), Starz ($8.99 per month), and Showtime ($10.99 per month).
TVision will be available on iPhone, iPad, Android, Apple TV, Amazon Fire, Google TV, and Android TV. Notably, T-Mobile is offering a free year of Apple TV+ to customers who sign up for TVision Live TV+ or Live Zone by December 31. You can also optionally add an Apple TV 4K to your account for $99 after rebate.
