T-Mobile this week has quietly released a new app for iPhone owners called T-Mobile TV. As the name suggests, the app provides access to the carrier’s subscription-based streaming service that offers live and on-demand content.
The service has been around for quite some time now, with an Android version of the mobile app landing in 2010. And it includes a range of programming, including sports, news, and kid channels like Disney and Nickelodeon…
Customers can purchase access to T-Mobile TV in a variety of packages, starting at $5.99 per month. But folks who want to get the most out of the service will want to subscribe to the Prime Pack, which is $12.99/month and includes:
-Live and On Demand sports from ESPN Mobile TV, NBC Sports, and CBS Sports.
-Kids programming including the Disney Channel, Nickelodeon, Discovery and Animal Planet.
-Streaming news from ABC News Now, Bloomberg, FOX News and FOX Business.
-On Demand Primetime and Reality shows from ABC, CBS, FOX, and NBC and more.
-Includes programming from ABC Family, MTV, Spike TV, Comedy Central, E! and VH1.
Other packages include Playground TV ($5.99 for 30 days), which offers programming from PBS Kids, Nick JR, and Sesame Street, and Crackle Movies ($6.99 for 30 days), which lets you pick from a library of full-length feature films.
The app, of course, is free to download. And right now, T-Mobile is offering a free 30-day trial that includes news (FOX News & Associated Press), sports (Campus Insiders & ACC Digital Network), and kids programming , and much more.
If you’re interested, you can find the T-Mobile TV app in the App Store. It works with any iPhone 4, 4S or 5 running iOS 5 or 6.
