T-mobile is on a fast track these days. To add another dimension to its offerings, it is now in merger talks with Dish. Dish has a huge cache of content and also a new product in Sling TV, which offers the channel, but bypasses the need to have a dish hooked onto the rooftop of the house!

Dish’s video business, which boasts 14 million subscribers, does have some value for T-Mobile, since it would give the company a new revenue stream. And Ergen has been experimenting with Sling TV, an “over-the-top” service that delivers TV over the Internet and can be used by customers who don’t subscriber to Dish (or T-Mobile). T-Mobile, meanwhile, has been gaining subscribers due to an aggressive turnaround effort spearheaded by Legere. But T-Mobile, for all its successes, is still far smaller than AT&T or Verizon in wireless and lacks other services to bundle (such as TV or high-speed Internet). Verizon and AT&T both offer TV in some regions, while AT&T is in the process of acquiring Dish’s satellite rival, DirecTV.
