Flying under the radar yesterday was a minor release by T-Mobile into Apple’s app store with the release of T-Mobile TV. T-Mobile has offered its TV app on Android since 2010 and with the release of the iPhone is expanding their efforts to showcase their “free” app.

T-Mobile TV is currently offering a 30 day free trial with free content including FOX News and Associated Press, Campus Insiders and ACC Digital Network and Saturday Morning TV and more. The prime pack which runs for $12.99 per month offers more mainstream content including ESPN, NBC and CBS sports, ABC news, ABC, CBS, FOX and NBC primetime programming as well as MTV, ABC Family, Spike TV, Comedy Central, E! and VH1. There’s even more premium packs to boost the content for T-Mobile TV including Playground TV, Life & Style, The Urban Zone and Crackle Movies.

All in all there’s plenty of content you can grab through T-Mobile TV, but it comes at a price. Discounts on content are available when purchasing 90 or 180 day subscription packages. T-Mobile TV on iOS requires an iPhone 5, 4S or 4 running iOS 5 or iOS 6.

T-Mobile TV allows you to watch the latest episode of your favorite TV shows, sports and news Live or On Demand directly on your smartphone!

    $12.99 a month?? Robbery. How bout they fix their horrible T-Mobile My Account app first, or give us wifi calling? You know, services people actually use.

    Ditto that.

    1) I don’t think WiFi calling on the iPhone is very likely, as it has to be baked into the OS kernel, which will probably never happen on iOS, given Apple’s strict policies on proprietary carrier features and bloatware, and maintaining absolute control over every aspect of their products.
    2) I know Sprint, AT&T, and Verizon provide similar apps, but in the long run, I don’t see them going anywhere, as I fail to see how apps like this provide anything better than what’s available from more popular 3rd party sources like Hulu Plus or YouTube. Give it a couple years, and I bet this app will finally be withdrawn!

      Not true the wifi calling was a app first on the g2 and every phone up to the sensation 4g

      • Denny

        You still needed a custom kernel for it to work though.

        • Josh

          Wifi calling works on my Galaxy S so idk what you Gus are fighting about

        • Alex Zapata

          It was an app on the galaxy s, but the first iteration of WiFi calling was UMA if I recall correctly.

    • Eric Stengrevics

      I don’t think that’s true at all. They have stated WiFi Calling is likely to come in a future firmware update. Maybe iOS 7?? Let’s hope.

    Isn’t the T-Mobile TV exactly the same thing as the Sprint TV app?.. they look the same at least.

  • decalex

    I understand TMo TV generates revenue. And I understand it is of value to some customers. But in my experience, 90% of customers who have it don’t know they’re paying a monthly fee for it. At that rate, I can’t attribute it to customer ‘ignorance,’ and there’s something shady about that.

  • Who here actually uses this? Be honest…

  • trife

    There’s a reason this flew under the radar.

  • NardVa

    Are people actually paying 15 a month towatch TV on their phone? This should be free.

    • USTV is free in google play ;) same exact thing though annoys pop ups every now and then but its ok
