T-Mobile's TV Service Rescheduled for 2019
T-Mobile's long-delayed mobile TV service won't launch in 2018 as originally planned and is now primed for a 2019 debut. Earlier this month reports suggested as much, and T-Mobile CEO John Legere confirmed the delay in a blog post. Legere spent much of the post lambasting AT&T and Verizon, but he also said the company will "start to take on the Cableopoly on all fronts — TV AND broadband — all backed by the same Un-carrier approach of listening to customers and solving their pain points." Legere said the first steps toward attacking the "stupid, broken, arrogant industry" will get underway in the new year. T-Mobile will target TV services, and it will also target in-home broadband. Legere didn't elaborate on how. T-Mobile hopes the government approves its proposed merger with Sprint in the early months of 2019. The company wants to surpass AT&T and Verizon with the launch of its own 5G network in 2019, which will be based on its 600 MHz spectrum, rather than the mmWave spectrum being employed by AT&T and Verizon. T-Mobile's 5G launch, expected mid-year, will cover much of the country when it goes live.
