  • T-Mobile US Inc (NASDAQ: TMUS) will blackout its streaming service, TVision live-TV service, and offer Alphabet Inc’s (NASDAQ: GOOG) (NASDAQ: GOOGL) YouTube TV at a discount, under their extended partnership, concluding a three-year effort to create a disruptive cable alternative, Bloomberg reports.
  • The decision to abandon TVision comes shortly after T-Mobile CEO Mike Sievert’s announcement regarding TVision’s crucial role in their broadband market debut.
  • T-Mobile will offer YouTube TV services to its mobile subscribers for a monthly plan of $54.99 priced at a $10 discount to Google.
