The wireless carrier is providing three separate TVision programming tiers: TVision Live (up to three streams per account), which centers on live sports, news and local TV; TVision Vibe (two streams per account), which includes 30 entertainment and lifestyle channels; and TVision Channels, which provides a-la-carte options for premium networks Showtime, Starz and Epix. The TVision Live bundles include up to 100 hours of DVR recording space (and the DVR option is available for $5/month extra on Vibe).
The wireless carrier also is introducing TVision Hub, a $50 HDMI adapter based on Google’s Android TV that plugs into the back of an HDTV, to stream TVision and more than 8,000 other apps including Netflix and YouTube. TVision is available on other platforms including iOS, Android (and Android TV), Amazon Fire TV and Apple TV, but not on Roku out of the gate. Note that the TVision Live lineups exclude CBS local channels, and T-Mobile doesn’t offer HBO or HBO Max (from AT&T’s WarnerMedia).
Here’s a breakdown of T-Mobile TVision new channel lineups, which are set to be available in the U.S. starting Nov. 1, initially only for T-Mobile’s postpaid wireless customers. TVision plans are slated to become available in 2021 at slightly higher prices to those who don’t have T-Mobile wireless service.
