TVision is a live TV streaming service that includes live entertainment, lifestyle, news, and sports channels starting at $10/month.
The service is available on Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Android TV, and T-Mobile’s Android TV dongle, T-Mobile Hub.
The service has two plans: TVision Vibe ($10) and TVision Live ($40+), which can be upgraded to TVision Live+ ($50) and TVision Live Zone ($60).
TVision Vibe ($10) includes channels from AMC, Discovery, Viacom, and Hallmark, while none of the more expensive TVision Live plans do. However, as part of a promotion, they are currently including channels in their Vibe plan, as part of their Live plan at no additional cost.
TVision Live plans carry local ABC, Fox, NBC, and Telemundo affiliates in many markets; it won’t carry CBS, The CW, and Univision at all.
If you upgrade to TVision Live+ ($50), you will get NBC-owned RSNs in select markets like NBC Sports Philadelphia and NBC Sports Washington, but like most Live TV Streaming Services they don’t offer Sinclair-owned Fox Sports RSNs (along with AT&T SportsNet, MSG, or NESN).
You also get additional sports networks like Big Ten Network, ESPNU, NFL Network, and SEC Network.
If you upgrade to TVision Live Zone ($60), the biggest addition is Longhorn Network, MAVTV, NFL RedZone, Outside Television, and Universal Kids.
100 Cloud DVR
All TVision Live plans include a 100 Hour DVR, while on TVision Vibe it is a $5 add-on. Their DVR doesn’t currently support recording Disney-owned channels like ESPN, Disney Channel, and FX.
