The Head of T-Mobile TV Has Left the Company

Male hand holding TV remote control.This week we learned the head of T-Mobile’s TV efforts and the former CEO of Layer3 TV has left T-Mobile.

On May 1, T-Mobile confirmed that Jeff Binder has left the company. SVP Robert Gary will become the general manager of T-Mobile’s Home & Entertainment division and is taking over T-Mobile’s TV efforts.

T-Mobile is still reportedly planning on launching a “full-line cable TV replacement” that will be “more disruptive,” and include “lower price offers.” This is not the current T-Mobile TV service that starts at $90 a month but something new.

T-Mobile has big plans for TV alongside its push for 5G. For now, it looks like a new leader will be in charge of that effort.

All of this news comes about a month after T-Mobile announced they are relaunching Layer3 TV as T-Mobile TVision. T-Mobile says, this is an “upgraded, rebranded version of Layer3 TV that brings us one step closer to taking on Big Cable later this year.”

“The Un-carrier has already changed wireless for good… and today’s news brings us one step closer to taking on Big Cable,” said John Legere, CEO. “And with the new T-Mobile, we can do more than just offer home TV service … we can offer millions of Americans more choice and competition for TV and home broadband. I can’t wait to begin un-cabling cable and giving millions the opportunity to cut the cord with Big Cable forever.”
