T-Mobile US to launch 'disruptive' TV service with new acquisition Layer3

Wednesday 13 December 2017 | 21:26 CET | News
T-Mobile US CEO John Legere said the operator plans to introduce a disruptive new TV service next year with cable startup Layer3, which it has agreed to acquire. The CEO provided no financial or other real details, saying only that all of Layer3's team will be joining T-Mobile US. He also said the new service, a combination of streaming TV and online video, will fix "pain points" such as multiyear contracts, high bills, bad customer service or slow technology and bring "real choice" to customers.
