Viacom brands (MTV, Nickelodeon, Comedy Central, BET, Paramount) will "play a key role" later this year with a TV service launch, the companies say.

It will include live linear feeds of Viacom channels as well as on-demand content.

Viacom is a "cornerstone launch partner" in the service that T-Mobile plans, building on its acquisition of Layer3 TV.
