Of course, an acquisition of that sort has to be approved by the necessary regulating bodies, and it looks like T-Mobile has achieved that goal. As a result of the confirmation of acquisition, nearly 200 employees at Layer3 TV will be joining the T-Mobile team. Layer3 TV’s CEO, Jeff Binder, will also be enlisting with T-Mobile as the company’s newest Executive Vice President. Binder will be running the show for T-Mobile TV when it goes live.
Soon Layer3 TV will be a product demoed and available for purchase at T-Mobile’s stores in Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Los Angeles and Washington, D.C.
When T-Mobile TV arrives later this year, it will offer similar features as other streaming options, including offering traditional channels and online video content. There’s no word on how T-Mobile will price it out just yet.
Do you think you’ll sign up for T-Mobile TV when it launches?
