T-Mobile is launching a TV service in 2018

T-Mobile wants to disrupt yet another industry.

T-Mobile announced today that’s it’s launching its own pay TV service in 2018. This is all in thanks to the company’s recent acquisition of “next-generation cable provider” Layer3 TV.

“People love their TV, but they hate their TV providers,” said T-Mobile CEO John Legere in a press release revealing the new service and the acquisition. “And worse, they have no real choice but to simply take it – the crappy customer service, clunky technology and outrageous bills loaded with fees! That’s where we come in. We’re gonna fix the pain points and bring real choice to consumers across the country.”

At this time, there really isn’t that much information about the company’s TV service other than a press release stating that T-Mobile is going to disrupt yet another industry. This is essentially T-Mobile’s motto.

Currently, Layer3 TV is available in 4 cities in the US and offers users the ability to watch hundreds of channels as well as streaming services such as Hulu and Netflix.

It’s still a little early to speculate, but this isn’t surprising to see T-Mobile jump into this space. Just recently, AT&T and Sony are heavily invested in streaming TV services of their own.
