YouTube To Offer Cable Channels

NBC News reports that YouTube has announced that YouTube is going to start offering a live and on demand television service called “YouTubeTV”. The service will cost $35 a month with access up to six accounts. The service is scheduled to go live in the next few months in the US, but no plans at this time for international distribution.

Subscribers will have access to up to 40 cable channels plus YouTube’s premium video service YouTube Red. Some of the channels included are NBC, Freeform, FX, ESPN, Fox Sports, and NBC Sports. Showtime and soccer programming will be available as well, but for an additional fee.

This is great news for cord cutters as this is another option for premium programming is becoming available. Now that Sling and Playstation have their options for online streaming channels expect more companies to jump on the bandwagon very soon.
