The battle for your pay TV dollar is on now that YouTube TV is up and running with a package of more than 50 channels for just $35 a month!
YouTube TV now live in five major markets
Residents of New York, Los Angeles, the San Francisco area, Chicago and Philadelphia can now sign up for YouTube TV.
YouTube TV is what’s called a “skinny bundle” in the industry — a streamlined offering of channels at a low price point.
The YouTube TV package includes live streaming broadcasts from major networks ABC, CBS, FOX and NBC, plus more than 50 popular cable channels.
Here’s the complete lineup:
- The CW (live or on demand depending on region)
- Big Ten Network
- CBS Sports Network
- Comcast RSN
- Fox RSN
- Golf Channel
- SEC Network
Entertainment & Lifestyle
- Nat Geo
- Nat Geo Wild
- Universal HD
- YouTube Red Originals
- Fox Business
- Fox News
- Disney Channel
- Disney Jr
- Disney xD
YouTube TV also has unlimited cloud DVR capability — sure to be another big selling point. Though we should note that recorded shows will disappear after nine months.
The $35-a-month price point covers six accounts, but only three simultaneous streams can be watched at once.
Always comparison shop before you sign up!
Remember though, finding the best deal for pay TV ultimately involves a lot of comparison shopping.
Be sure to call your local cable company and ask about their skinny bundles offers. You may be able to get more of the channels you want for less than you’re paying them right now.
