We’ve been listening rumours regarding the YouTube Television service from long and finally it makes its way out to us! So YouTube released the YouTube TV officially a week back and has introduced awesome plan for a budget price. Hola! YouTube 😀
‘YouTube TV,’ a new subscription service offering variety of TV networks, cloud DVR, and YouTube Red originals for just $35 a month. Obviously the library of TV networks will make or break YouTube TV, but Google is off to a pretty great start. YouTube TV includes ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC, ESPN, and dozens of other local sports and cable networks. Showtime and Fox Soccer Plus are available for an additional charge which is worth it actually! 😀
Google’s aim is to make watching TV more like watching YouTube, so one of the big selling points is Cloud DVR. Because YouTube is interesting to watch and so will be YouTube TV. Much like Xfinity and similar TV providers, recordings of shows are kept online for easy access. There is no storage limit or simultaneous recording limit, but recordings are deleted after nine months. Impressive! Isn’t it?
There are a few additional benefits to YouTube TV worth mentioning. You can have up to six user accounts, with separate recommendations and DVRs, and up to three users can stream TV at once. The service also includes all YouTube Red Originals, and works on Android, iOS, and Chromecasts/Chromecast-compatible TVs.
As said by Google — YouTube TV doesn’t includes the ad-free YouTube Red subscription or Google Play Music membership, only YouTube Red Originals. So don’t be happy if you were thinking it does.
As mentioned above, YouTube TV only costs $35 a month with no contract or secret prices. Google says it will “be available soon in the largest U.S. markets and will quickly expand to cover more cities across the country.” You can sign up at tv.youtube.com to find out when it becomes available in your area.
