However, the price includes a $9.99 per month discount for T-Mobile customers that will also be extended to all TVision Home customers for a limited time. T-Mobile customers get a $10 monthly discount, though the company said the service would be offered to non-customers only for a limited time.
T-Mobile hopes to change this and is reportedly "one step closer to taking on Big Cable later this year".
T-Mobile is also offering to pay off early termination fees from satellite providers up to $500 through its new Satellite Freedom program.
Today T-Mobile announced they are relaunching Layer3 TV as T-Mobile TVision.
Service will be available on April 14th in Chicago, Dallas-Fort Worth, Los Angeles, Longmont (Colorado), New York City, Philadelphia, San Francisco and the Washington DC metro area.
Add in taxes, and another $10 per connected TV, and TVisionHome doesn't look very Un-Conventional, compared to Sling, YouTube TV and others.

For those looking for independent results, PC Gamer has confirmed its own numbers broadly conform to Nvidia's own. Depending on the game and the complexity of the ray tracing it uses, faster GTX hardware is sometimes viable.
Maybe the real distruptor will come later when T-Mobile launches their pick-and-choose streaming service?
It's nice to see T-Mobile getting the ball rolling on its home TV service more than a year after first announcing plans to get into the TV business.
The TVision Home service is essentially a rebrand of Layer3's service, which is positioned as an alternative to cable or satellite TV in the US. I can't wait to begin un-cabling cable and giving millions the opportunity to cut the cord with Big Cable forever, said John Legere, CEO of T-Mobile.
T-Mobile also confirmed that TVision Home comes with built-in apps for Pandora, iHeartRadio, XUMO, CuriosityStream, Toon Goggles, and HSN, but more apps are coming soon, including Netflix, YouTube, YouTube Kids and more. You'll pay extra for premium material like HBO, Showtime and on-demand movies, although 4K channels are included as part of the base package. You can connect your social networks to view Facebook photos and Twitter profiles, too, and you can access your security cameras to keep an eye on your house while you're on the couch. You'll be able to use Amazon's Alexa or Google Home to control TVision as well, making it a ideal option for smart home lovers. According to T-Mobile over 275 channels will be available under the full-service plan as well as 400 hours of HD DVR service that can record multiple channels at once.
T-Mobile said 74 percent of American households now pay an average bill $107.30 per month.
It won't surprise you to hear that T-Mobile is playing up the tech angle. You'll probably save a few bucks each month, but the greatest benefit of TVision Home is that there are no hidden fees and no annual service contracts.
