T-Mobile adds more channels to TVision Live TV+ service


Starting today, T-Mobile is giving TVision Live customers free access to its TVision Vibe service, but that’s not the only move that T-Mo is making with TVision this week.

T-Mobile has quietly added seven more channels to its TVision Live TV+ service. They are the American Heroes Channel, Cooking Channel, Destination America, Discovery Family, Discovery Life, Great American Country, and Science Channel.

Because TVision Live Zone includes all the channels of Live TV+, TVision Live Zone subscribers should have these new channels now, too.

This expansion means that TVision Live TV+ now includes 64 channels, up from the 57 that it had when TVision launched a few weeks ago. TVision Live TV+ is priced at $50 per month.

TVision is currently available to postpaid T-Mobile customers as well as legacy Sprint customers. T-Mo has said that it’ll open TVision up to prepaid T-Mobile customers as well as people not on T-Mobile in 2021.

Thanks Info Assistant!

    Really won’t make a difference. I can still get You Tube Live at the same cost and it includes CBS. Also there is a native app in my Roku TV. There is nothing pulling me away from YT to TMO. They need to do better than this.

      Agreed. We get all of our local channels and a nice selection of other networks that we are more likely to be watching. Plus the NFL network made the list recently. Right now YTTV is the service that offers us more value.

        They need to stop raising the price though…

        • Bob B.

          If you think that price increases are ever going to end for ALL service providers, then I have a bridge in Brooklyn to sell to you. Tell the companies who own the TV channels that are shown on the TV services to stop increasing the prices for their networks to the providers and that would be a start. Right now if I tried to match what I get on YTTV using Spectrum cable TV, my costs would be for sure higher. Add in all of the equipment fees and DVR service fees and a local broadcast fee that is currently $16.45 a month. Plus, we share our YTTV service with an out of state son. And yes, it works. We just log into his account from our home once in a while, rinse and repeat.

          YT TV is still the best in my opinion, I’ve had it since Aug 2018, sharing it with two siblings and at the current rate only paying $23 a month, that’s unbeatable.

      You forgot, IMHO, YTTV’s best feature – its unlimited DVR storage.

      TVision’s DVR is only capable of storing 100 hours of content. That may seem like a lot, but it can be filled quickly. Especially this time of the year, with holiday marathons and, in normal years, frequent travels to see friends and family interrupting your normal TV viewing schedules…

    Looks like this is the outcome of Discovery reminding them they have to include all their channels.

  • Glenn Gore

    And it begins. Just as I predicted a while back, T-Mobile is being required by Discovery Networks to add all of the channels they produce to their lowest-priced tiers in exchange for being allowed to carry the main Discovery Channel feed, the one Discovery Channel anyone wants to watch. This will eventually require a substantial increase in the price of the lowest tier as the number of services on it rises.

    Get ready, because the same thing will happen soon with Disney requiring that all the networks they own (and that is a LOT) be carried on those lowest tiers, and the same with Viacom/CBS, and on & on, until that lowest price tier becomes $60/month, just like YouTubeTV, HULU, and all the rest of the streaming services.

    This is just a fact of life with the programmers. You cannot just carry Discovery Channel, or ESPN, or CNN, oh no, you have to carry 37 other channels that no one wants to watch, and on the lowest priced tier if you want to carry those main channels. This is what killed the cable industry, and is killing the satellite services, and is what will eventually kill the streaming services. It’s just a matter of time, unless some government entity issues some sort of regulation that bars the practice of channel-bundling.

      Spot on. Legere saying he’s going to change the way we watch tv isn’t going to happen. The owners of the channels and their forced bundles will not go away anytime soon unless people say enough and quit subscribing and that’s not happening either. I laughed out loud when T-Mobile first claimed they were going to change the TV industry. I guess they forgot they don’t make the rules.

    Hoping for History Channel and Life Time.

    Unfortunately, these media moguls are driving the prices. And, we are thinking about TVision, especially since our DTV cost has increased about 30.00 and that more over the last year…

    • Acdc1a

      My AT&T TV Now is $55 a month but it includes ALL of my locals. I can’t do T-Mobiles plan until they get ALL of the locals.

      • Fan_Posting

        Simply said, thanks, I will check out the Att TV Now services..

  • Jan Wolf

    Hoping they will add Marquee Sports channel in time for baseball season, CBS and WGN at some point.
