T-Mobile TVision channels and features vs. Philo, Sling TV, Hulu and YouTube TV

T-Cell’s new TVision service has a bunch of channels you possibly can stream dwell. We break all of them down beneath.


T-Cell

T-Mobile, greatest generally known as an organization that you just pay for telephone service, is gunning to your TV now, too. Its revamped TVision service comes out Nov. 1 and provides packages of familiar TV channels that you stream live. It is a direct competitor to not solely conventional cable TV but additionally to a bunch of different comparable companies like YouTube TVSling TV and Hulu Plus Live TV.

Because it begins at $10 per 30 days, it is really cheaper than another such service — half the value of Philo, the least-expensive multichannel dwell streamer. However that $10 bundle, known as “TVision Vibe,” lacks native channels (suppose ABC, Fox and NBC) in addition to sports activities and information channels. To get these it’s worthwhile to step as much as a dearer TVision bundle and pay a minimum of $40 per 30 days. 

So what channels do you get with TVision? Glad you requested.

Prime 100 channel comparability

At PJDM we keep a listing of the Top 100 channels available across the major streaming services. For this text we have tailored that checklist so as to add the 2 most important TVision packages — the $10 Vibe and the $40 Dwell — so you possibly can evaluate them on to the competitors. Earlier than you dive in, nevertheless, our commonplace caveats apply.

  • The checklist would not have each channel accessible on the entire companies, simply the highest 100 as decided by PJDM editors (specifically, me). Sorry, AXS TV, Discovery Life, GSN, Longhorn Community and Common HD. 
  • To preserve house I did not embody Fubo TV or AT&T TV Now within the chart beneath.
  • Sure = The channel is out there on the most affordable pricing tier. That value is listed subsequent to the service’s identify.
  • No = The channel is not accessible in any respect on that service. 
  • $ = The channel is out there for an additional payment, both a la carte or as a part of a dearer bundle or add-on. 
  • For TVision Dwell, I used the “$” to indicate channels reserved for the step-up $50 and $60 packages.
  • Regional sports networks — channels dedicated to displaying regular-season video games of specific professional baseball, basketball and hockey groups (once games resume) — should not listed. (TVision features a few NBC RSNs beginning in its $50 Dwell Plus bundle; RSN protection on the others varies broadly). 
  • ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC, MyNetworkTV and The CW networks should not accessible in each metropolis and availability of those native channels varies per service. (Editors’ observe: PJDM is owned by ViacomCBS.)  
  • The chart columns are organized so as of value, so if you cannot see every little thing you need, attempt scrolling proper.
