Friday, November 9th, 2018

Late last year, T-Mobile announced its intentions to "uncarrier" television service, with its purchase of Layer3, an online TV provider. The first fruits of that acquisition have just reared their head at the FCC in the form of a new T-Mobile-branded set-top box.

T-Mobile completes purchase of Layer3 TV

Tuesday, January 23rd, 2018

Near the end of last year, T-Mobile announced that it was buying Layer3 TV, an online television provider. T-Mobile said that it wanted to "un-carrier" the TV industry by offering its own service, and purchasing Layer3 was the first step. T-Mobile's acquisition of Layer3 is now complete, according to a press release from today.

The announcement, unfortunately, doesn't have any details about T-Mobile's future TV plans. John Legere, President and CEO of T-Mobile, said in a statement, "I can’t wait to take the fight to Big Cable and Satellite TV on behalf of consumers everywhere!" The company's new TV team will be led by Jeff Binder, the CEO of Layer3.
