YouTube TV Adds More Channels

The Race is On - YouTube TV Just Added More Channels

YouTube TV

All these new streaming TV service providers may seem like it's just too much. But after having only a couple of providers to choose from to watch TV for many years there is a silver lining.

New streaming TV providers like Hulu Live and YouTube Live are doing something that has not been done in a very long time. They are lighting a fire under the cable and satellite TV markets that have dominated the industry forever, causing them to lose subscribers and are driving prices down.

Subscribers are dropping expensive cable TV packages at a record pace, and meanwhile we now have many more new and less expensive streaming TV services that are happy to step up and help those that want to save some money and yet hold onto some their favorite live TV channels.

Skinny bundles are here to stay, and as more and more providers start fighting over your monthly subscription dollars, the skinnier or less expensive they may get. Plus you can cancel anytime. Remember when the only way you could watch Satellite TV was by signing up for a two year contract? Those days are over!

YouTube TV in order to stay competitive with Hulu just upped their channels and now offer a total of 43 channels for the same $35/month fee. This is good for 6 accounts per household.

YouTube TV is one of the few streaming TV services to offer and was one of the first to include all the major networks ABC, CBS, FOX and NBC, plus entertainment and news networks from FOX and NBCU.

YouTube also has the AMC Bundle of network channels which include IFC, BBC America, AMC, Sundance and WETV. Something Hulu live TV service at $39.99/month does not yet have.

Sports fans will be happy with ESPN, Science Fiction fans will be happy to see SyFy, plus they also recently also added Telemundo and Universo to the YouTube TV channel lineup as well.

Full YouTube TV Channels List

YouTube TV Only Available In Limited Service Areas

Currently only if you live in Los Angeles, New York, the Bay Area, Chicago, or Philadelphia will you be able to stream and watch YouTube Live. More areas are being added and you can get on their notification list by submitting your email to their Welcome Coming Soon Page.

Add On Packages Available

Besides the included channels, YouTube TV offers several packages you can add separately for an extra fee. These include Showtime for $11/month and Fox Soccer Plus for $15/ month.

Is YouTube TV Worth It?

Only you know if it's worth it, there are many other packages out there and in a recent survey of the top 5 Live Streaming TV Service, YouTube was number 4. DirecTV Now was in last place and the first three spots went to Playstation Vue, Sling TV, and Hulu Live. Mind you this was before YouTube TV upped their game and added these latest channels. This may have been enough to bump them into 3rd place and possibly nipping at the current 2nd place spot holder Sling TV.
