Mobile snaps up Denver's Layer3 TV

Mobile snaps up Denver's Layer3 TV

To make this possible, the carrier has announced that it is acquiring Layer3 TV, which refers to itself as a "next generation cable company".

T-Mobile will enter into a new business territory in 2018.

T-Mobile said it earlier offered freedom to video stream with Binge On and T-Mobile ONE, and then giving T-Mobile ONE families a free Netflix subscription included at no extra charge. The strategy of T-Mobile is clear.

While T-Mobile, the third-largest USA wireless carrier, has been able to expand its mobile phone subscriber base faster than peers, the pace of market share gains is under pressure as Verizon and AT&T have responded with unlimited data plans aimed at people looking for cheaper ways to support their mobile video habits.

"People love their TV, but they hate their TV providers". Thanks to T-Mobile's "Un-carrier" plan of action, they've been changing ...

Layer3 TV service, which integrates television, online video content and social media, is available in five cities across the U.S., T-Mobile said. Even including those digital plans, the five biggest TV providers are projected to have lost 469,000 customers in the third quarter. The Layer3 acquisition is expected to close in a few weeks, at which point T-Mobile will actually start working on incorporating its technology in a new package. And just this year, YouTube, Hulu and Philo - a newer contender in the OTT space - launched their own live TV service. Legere said that there are tons of complaints from cable and satellite TV customers about their service, and T-Mobile wants to go after that market with its own TV effort while also providing excellent customer service.
