The world is at its most advanced stage it has ever been. Technologies that were once only imagined, are now things we use on a routine. A lot of new electronic gadgets have been brought into existence and many existing ones have been immensely developed and improved. One of those gadgets is television. Gone are the days of big boxes. LCD, LED and OLED TVs are the norm today, and other than being slim they have many smart features. Other than the hardware changes, the ways of watching TV are changing too. Now we can watch TV from even a smartphone. Many services allow you to do so. The latest addition to that is T-Mobile’s TVision.
TVision is an internet television service that is to be launched in November, next month. It is supposed to have three tiers of packages. The basic package is priced at $40 per month and includes 30 channels. The second plan TVision Live TV Plus costs $50 per month and features around 40 channels. The last Live Zone package is worth $60 per month and has a total of 50 channels.
It has two more streaming options. One is TVision Vibe that features only comedy, drama, and other entertainment channels. It costs only $10 a month. Last but not the least, is TVision Channels, where you can pick your own channels and pay accordingly. These two can be bought together as well. TVision will be available on a good deal of platforms that include iOS, Android, Apple TV, Android TV, Amazon Fire, and Google TV.
