    The announcement has been made.

    TVision is available to all postpaid customers starting November 1st. Later in November for Sprint customers.

    2021 it will be available to T-Mobile prepaid and to non-customers.

    Ugh... yet another 'bundled' cord cutting service. Joining the ranks of Hulu, Sling TV, Google TV, AT&T Now, Spectrum TV, etc.
    Typical 'locals + sports + news + general'. I'm glad to have cut the ranks of this stuff. Most of the cost is for the sports channels.

    AT&T... your world, throttled.

    I really want to like these live TV services but Netflix / Hulu w/o ads / HBO Max / YouTube cover everything I watch. $10/mo is a good price. Let's see if the price sticks to where it is or if it'll go up like the rest of them.

    Most of these are ViacomCBS channels, and you can get decent copycats of all these channels for free with Pluto TV (also owned by ViacomCBS). Pluto TV actually has more channels come to think of it. I wouldn't pay $10 a month for something I could essentially get for free.

    YouTube TV recently had a huge price increase.

    Maybe I’ll check this out?

    Where is CBS local? Positive deal breaker.

    This is another service heavy on sports and old movies. At least they offer HGTV in the $10 add-on; my wife watches that 75% of her TV time, and the Dodgers 20 more %. No MLB channel either, I think? Well, maybe next season.

    Most likely CBS being difficult so they can push CBS All Access.

    At least, this is more sustainable then purchasing entire assets like AT&T did with DirecTV and ending up with buyers remorse. If this doesn't sell well, they can always shutdown the service and not worry about liability of holding an money losing asset or shop around for a buyer.

    If I'm going to watch this type of stuff I'm going to watch it on a TV, not on an iPhone or iPad.

    This is true. At&t bought Direct TV and Time Warner. Time Warner was probably a better deal, IMHO, as DTV's satellite tech can mostly be replaced with wireless, and customers in general are cutting the cord .. including DTV. Time Warner assets are still producing product.

    Failure here on several fronts

    1. No CBS local station
    2. No Roku access
    3. No Firestick access
    4. Their top package is only $4.99 less than Youtube TV that has alot more channels, supports all major devices and has unlimited DVR.

    Failure in my book

    Hopefully, it will get better over time.


    I see this is initially being offered to T mobile and then Sprint customers. Are these the "discount" prices and the prices will be higher for outside customers when it launches nationwide?

    CBS is in part owned by AT&T, so that's probably not going to be cheap. No Roku is a bad start.

    Very bad start. Roku/Firestick make out about 90% of more of streaming devices in the US. Not being on either initially is not good. Even if I was somewhat interested in it, I am not going to switch to Apple TV just to get it especially since I already have numerous Roku and Firestick devices at home. I would have held off the launch until they got a deal with Roku. HBO Max had a very rough start due to it not been on Roku for months.

    TV? This is their uncarrier event? Linear TV in late 2020? ironically a thing that caters to an older demographic lacks CBS
