Google Releases New Competition For Cable TV with YouTube TV
YouTube TV is the latest Google service that could be a new target for Cable TV.
For only 35$ a month you get up to 6 accounts, live TV from more than 40 providers including the big broadcast networks, ESPN, regional sports networks and also dozens of other cable networks. This monthly subscription also allows you to have access to a cloud DVR with unlimited storage, not to mention the already known Youtube Red programming.
YouTube will also allow users to choose what they want to add to their YouTube TV account, more specifically, the channels you want on your TV, making the overall subscription cheaper, except for in the case where you require additional features, for which then you pay a certain fee.
But even though you can watch TV whenever and wherever you want, if you are a NFL fan, you can only watch it either on your computer or television, thanks to the NFL/Verizon deal, that excluded mobile streaming.
Don’t expect your ads to go anywhere though as they will be a thing just like on your YouTube videos, to provide a source of extra revenue for the Google partners.
The YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki called this step an “evolution of television”, and a bid to “give the younger generation the content that they love with the flexibility they expect.
There is still no date of the release, but it is expected to be released in the US “in the coming weeks and months”.
Here, though, are the list of channels you can expect with your subscription –
