When will TVision be available for Roku, Samsung, or LG TVs? I’m want to get the service but I don't see a good reason to buy another $50 streaming stick/box to use for the service when all my current devices are still new.

No Roku support? The largest platform for streaming and you ignore it?, bad move. I use everything TMobile from phones to banking to (soon) internet but cant use Tvision because you dont support my TV.. That's a huge fail. Oh well I guess Hulu Live will keep getting my money.

Yes, we are waiting for the Roku app as well.  We were ready to sign up until we found out it doesn’t support Roku.   The sooner the better please.

I too am only waiting for a Roku app.  Once you get used to a certain platform its just a hassle to change.  T-Mobile should do everything they can to get the app on Roku.  I’ve had service with them for years and just signed up for internet.  Would also love to dump my current streaming service and switch to Tvision, but won’t do it until a Roku app is available.

Not for me until they have a Roku App! Dang. I was just about to sign up.

Coming from information from an inside source a Roku app is coming he could give me an eta, but couldn’t legally disclose that. So be patient there's one coming. 

I might end up getting rid of TVision because they aren’t available on Roku.  I love the price and the channel options, but I can’t get it on Roku.  Sooooo frustrating!!

I just added a mobile hotspot and Tvision to my account. I love the hotspot but, did not realize that ROKU was not an option. I will be discontinuing the TVision service because we use Roku for all are TVs

 

After seeing this post still active after the launch in November, T-Mobile might be actively looking at the comments on it. I think, in order for it to succeed, T-Mobile needs to bring Roku support. I love the service, but using an old Android TV nexus player just for TVision seems silly. I’d much rather have a roku app.

Unlikely Roku’s being ignored. I’m sure T-Mobile and Roku are in heated negotiations over price. Roku, being top dog in the streaming device market, charges more for a slot on their devices than the other manufacturers. HBOMax is only just now rumored to have finally come to an agreement with Roku to get their channel slot. T-Mobile will probably come to an agreement eventually.

There is no fee for distributing a channel through the Roku Channel Store or as a non-certified channel on the Roku Platform, tmobile just has not done it and with their push for customers to purchaae the 50.00 home unit I doubt we will see a Roku channel anytime soon. So yes it was and is being ignored.

We purchased two TVision hubs but find there isn't enough of a buffer/cache to prevent constant pausing. We can get channels on the phone, but cant cast to a tv for full screen. We have hoped a ROKU channel would be available soon, but aren't willing to wait too much longer.  Would love for TMobile to let their intentions known on whether or not they plan on developing a Roku channel.

Come on TMob’s I would sign up in a second to save the $15 from HuluLive if you would just get me a Roku app.  We only have Roku via RokuTV’s or streaming sticks, so I am not about to buy firesticks for 6 TV’s.

Like others was ready to signup for TVision.  But, we have Roku’s.  No Roku support?  Really!!

Why can't we get an official response from T-mobile employee that deals with TVision marketing?

It’s all about ad revenue. Roku wants their cut and Tmobile is balking at it.

Man I’m so mad about this I literally just added it to my account only to find it wasn’t compatible with my tv. The guy was like if you have a smart tv and wifi you can add it bs. Roku does not support it and I wasted my time called them back and canceled it immediately! Very bad move T-Mobile! 

I bought the TMobile Hub thing with the service and it doesn’t even work with their official device!!!

I was pretty excited for T-Vision.  Bought 2 of the T-Vision Hubs, and they don’t work right with my TVs.  Volume is separate than the TV Volume, and it uses the input button to turn the TV on and off.  I’m sending them back and returning to YouTube TV.  Maybe I will revisit it when they have a Roku App.  We are already a Roku family.  Not changing again.

Service is utter garbage. I had it when it was originally Tvision Home and had no problems. Now it doesn't connect or only works when my phone is a hotspot. No refund, called today and it is a “common problem” they have no fix for at the time being but I can keep paying them for no service. T-Mobile = GARBAGE. NO SMART TV WORKS WITH THE APP/ ALL LIES!!!!

Wow really? I got it to try and save money because the cable and internet companies are high. Glad we have a fire stick and I went ahead and told them take it off as soon as I added it to my account when I figured out it wasn’t compatible with my tv. Wow and it doesn’t work with any smart tv? What’s the point or are they trying to make ppl by that 49.99 device like the fire stick for TVision?! 🤔🤔🤔🤔

It works fine with smart TVs and the hub. That person just has many issues with all technology since he also told me ATT is garbage and some other phone is garbage. It seems to be a personal problem. TVision works fine with Google/Android tv smart TVs. The people that have smart TVs that aren’t Google like Roku or LG don’t have compatibility yet, but Android TVs are the most common so I get that. It works fine with a Google tv chromecast or their hub. I have Sony smart tv and an older non smart tv I bought the hub for and they both work.

Please add me to the chorus of “I would subscribe if...”  Roku OR PC app and I’m all in.  Otherwise, I’ll remain on the sidelines.

I was about to contract the same but then saw no Roku app yet :( It sucks.

Sadly tmobile is shutting down Tvision at the end of April.
