YouTube TV – this could be BIG!!

Live as of Yesterday, YouTube TV will be offered in five major cities. New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Philadelphia and Chicago. Google revealed that the service would be coming less than two months ago and it’s here. More cities are expected to be added in the near future.

Offered at $35 per month with the first month free. But, what do you get for your $35? Quite a bit in my humble opinion.  Starting with forty channels, including broadcast networks ABC, Fox, CBS and NBC, you also receive USA, FX, Disney, CW, ESPN, ESPN2, ESPN News, Fox News, Fox Sports, E, SyFy, CNBC, National Geographic, MSNBC, Bravo, Sprout and others. The complete list can be found here.

In addition, you can add on Showtime ($11 per month) and Fox Soccer Plus ($15 per month).  No, HBO is not available as yet, but Google says access will hopefully be coming soon. In the coming months other channels are expected to be added to the standard subscription like BBC America, BBC World News, Sundance TV, IFC and We TV. Other perks include unlimited DVR, which will allow customers to store as many shows as wanted (and kept up to nine months), sharing membership with up to six accounts, the ability to watch on ANY DEVICE, access to YouTube Red original shows, no cancellation fees and a free Chromecast device after the first monthly payment.

The $35 per month fee should make it attractive to many of us currently paying for bundles which include unwanted channels with Comcast, Spectrum, Charter and others.  Cable companies have held us hostage, paying for what we don’t want for a very long time. This type of package is more akin to what is offered by Sling TV, Netflix and others, which many may find more attractive and affordable.

I don’t know about you, but I will be anxiously waiting for YouTube TV to be available in my area. This package looks far more appealing to me than the standard fare that I currently pay for. I’ll have to wait and see if it’s all that I’m anticipating. What about you? Will you be looking to try YouTube TV?
