Cord-cutters rejoice. YouTube TV, Google’s answer to live TV streaming platforms like Playstation Vue, DirecTV Now and Sling TV has officially launched in five American cities, and you can subscribe to the newly minted platform for just $35 a month.
Announced in February, YouTube TV will initially offer subscribers in New York, Los Angeles, the San Francisco Bay Area, Chicago, and Philadelphia the ability to stream major network programming from 40 channels, including ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC, ESPN, Fox Sports Networks, Comcast and SportsNet. A glut of other networks, such as Telemundo and BBC America, are expected to join the service as it "quickly" rolls out across the nation, according to YouTube.
YouTube TV offers an array of perks, including unlimited cloud storage, so you can binge-record any number of shows DVR-style. And there’ll be no need to steal your neighbor’s login credentials, because up to six users can have their own account under the $35 membership plan.
