All you want to know about YouTube TV

There's no full list yet, and YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki explained that the company is launching the service first in areas of the United States where it can offer full live programming. Hulu is planning is own over-the-top service this year, with CBS, Fox and Disney - including ESPN -among the networks which have signed on. Each of the major broadcast networks are available - CBS, NBC, FOX, ABC, and The CW.

YouTube users watch as many as 1 billion hours of video a day on the service, the company said earlier this week.

We've been hearing about it for a while, and now it is officially here: YouTube TV, the service's own live streaming television service. The subscription, which will cost $35 a month for a family plan of up to six accounts, is expected to launch in the next few months in the U.S. now there are no plans for global service. Add-ons such as Showtime will also be available.

As for navigating the content, the primary interface will be a smartphone app with three tabs: "Live", "Library", and "Home". Typing in "time travel", for instance, will pull up all available content with that theme. You can also "cast" YouTube TV from your mobile device to a TV with Google Cast built in or a Chromecast plugged in.


YouTube TV includes unlimited cloud DVR storage, which means you can add any series or sports event to your favourites and it will save it up for you.

YouTube isn't ruling out working with those programmers down the line.

Also be aware that all of the digital TV services still have gaps in their coverage, usually around pro football: Deals - or lack of them - with local affiliates may affect your ability to watch your local NFL team play next fall.

YouTube has so far been associated with free content. Getting viewers to pay $35 dollars a month will be a tough task. But based on what we know right now, it looks like a compelling cord-cutting option with features including a DVR subscription and a sub-$40 price point that take it a cut above the competition.
