We've talked a little bit about T-Mobile's upcoming video service. And while TMo has said that it doesn't want to build just another streaming service, one can conclude that it will have, ya know, channels. And today we've learned that those channels will include Viacom.

And that's not a given in this day and age. Viacom — which includes such cable staples as MTV, Nickelodeon, Comedy Central, BET, Paramount and more — is fairly notorious not working with everyone. (Or wanting licencing fees that just won't work for the service, we suppose.) But today Viacom and T-Mobile announced that those channels will appear on T-Mobile's streaming service, which will be unveiled sometime later this year.

From the press release:

"Viacom represents the best of the best, most-popular brands on cable, so they are an amazing partner for us!" said John Legere, CEO of T-Mobile. "TV programming has never been better, but consumers are fed up with rising costs, hidden fees, lousy customer service, non-stop BS. And Macgyvering together a bunch of subscriptions, apps and dongles isn't much better. That's why T-Mobile is on a mission to give consumers a better way to watch what they want, when they want."

"We are thrilled to join forces with T-Mobile on a new entertainment service that represents an important evolution in how audiences consume our content," said Bob Bakish, Viacom President and CEO. "Today's landmark announcement marks a major step forward in our strategy to accelerate the presence of our brands on mobile and other next-generation platforms, and we're so excited to partner with T-Mobile to provide millions of subscribers with access to our networks and more choice in a new service that will be unlike any other in the market."

Still to come? How much this little endeavor will cost customers, how T-Mobile intends to make it available — and just what it'll look like. Short of any real details, we're still working off of what TMo execs said back in February:

"We don't have plans to develop an 'nth' undifferentiated skinny bundle," Sievert said. "There are plenty of those. We think there's a more nuanced role for us to play in helping you get access to the great media brands out there that you love, and to be able to put together your own media subscription in smaller pieces — $5, $6, $7, $8 at a time.

For now? Stay tuned.
