It looks like T-Mobile’s TV service could be about to launch
Late last year, T-Mobile acquired a small pay TV company called Layer3, which offers a cable-esque TV service in a handful of markets around the US. At the time, T-Mobile debuted the acquisition in its usual splashy way, saying that “we’re gonna fix the pain points and bring real choice to consumers across the country,” with some vague plan to have a cheap service with 250 channels.
Since last December, T-Mobile’s focus has shifted to pushing through its merger with Sprint, and we haven’t heard much about its TV plans. But all that could be about to change, as the company is now teasing another Un-carrier event on August 15th, and references to a TV service have popped up on the website.
