T-Mobile US Inc will shut down its TVision live-TV service and offer Google’s YouTube TV at a promotional discount, ending a three-year effort to create a disruptive alternative to cable.Customers “don’t want more streaming services — they want help buying and navigating the services that already exist,” T-Mobile Chief Executive Officer Mike Sievert wrote in a blog post Monday.
The decision to back out of the crowded streaming market comes just weeks after Sievert said TVision was going to play a big role in the company’s plan to enter the broadband market as soon as this month.
“We don’t actually even think of TVision as a business,” Sievert said in an interview on March 11. “You know, we think of it as an initiative, an initiative to help us sell home broadband and serve customers.”
