TVision has now gained TV Everywhere support. With the feature now available, subscribers to T-Mobile’s live TV subscription service can access a selection of third-party network apps.
TVision is one of the newest options for anyone looking to stream live TV channels over the internet, with Vibe and Live packages to choose from. However, as it is still new, the service is still finding its feet and building out its features and support. For example, TVision is currently only available to existing T-Mobile customers.
Another limitation was that TV Everywhere support was not available, although that has now changed. T-Mobile has now confirmed TVision TV Everywhere support is live, allowing subscribers to use their live TV subscription credentials to log in to a variety of network apps and websites.
Using these third-party apps can not only open up access to additional content, but it can also help with households finding TVision’s simultaneous streams policy to be too limiting. At the same time, those accessing a network app or website won’t be able to rely on the number of streams or device support TVision offers, with each network applying its own stream and device limitations.
TV Everywhere, but not every network
Although TV Live and Vibe subscribers now have access to TV Everywhere, there still will be some network apps and websites that they cannot log in to. This is not uncommon with TV Everywhere, and additional networks will likely be added over time.
As of right now, TVision lists roughly 50 network apps and websites that are accessible to subscribers, and just as many that are not. In some cases, this is not necessarily the fault of TVision, with some networks and channels currently not offering the option to watch through an app or website.
In addition, TV Everywhere app and website availability is highly dependent on the live TV plan to begin with. For example, TVision Vibe subscribers will only be able to access the apps and websites for channels included with their subscription. The same goes for TVision Live, Live+ and Live Zone subscribers.
With TV Everywhere added, T-Mobile’s live TV service now offers more value than before. TVision is currently available in four different flavors with plans starting as low as $10 per month. However, consumers will need to look to the $40 per month and higher plans for a package comparable to the likes of Hulu Live TV and YouTube TV.
