If you’ve been considering live TV streaming services to cut your cable or satellite bill in half, now is a good time to try out YouTube TV.
YouTube TV announced back in February that it was adding new channels and new markets, but that would come with a price hike for new members as of March 13.
YouTube TV price hike: Sign up before March 13 to lock in the $35/month rate
You have until 11:59 p.m. PT on March 12 to sign up for $35 per month before the monthly rate for new members increases to $40.
TNT, Adult Swim, TBS, CNN, HLN, Cartoon Network, truTV and Turner Classic Movies are among the 50+ networks now included with a YouTube TV membership.
In addition, NBA TV and MLB Network have just been added to the base package.
Team Clark has been testing various live TV streaming services over the past few months, including DirecTV Now, Sling TV, PlayStation Vue, Hulu with Live TV and YouTube TV — which is money expert Clark Howard’s favorite.
“My favorite of all the streaming products is YouTube TV. It has a pretty wide array of television programming, but what’s really neat is that multiple people could be watching different things at the same time and everybody has an unlimited DVR.”
