Cord-Cutters Rejoice: YouTube TV Is Coming Soon

YouTube TVSo you’ve broken up with cable but secretly miss live events or DVR? Welcome to YouTube TV.

If you are a fan of watching sitcoms, dramas, sports, and movies LIVE, YouTube TV is for you. Unlike any of the other current streaming and subscription services, YouTube TV will not only stream live TV, but subscribers have access to a cloud DVR, YouTube Red Originals and great service on all screens. Get all this at half the cost, zero commitments and with six accounts.

ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC, ESPN – you name it!

Get the best in live TV with 40+ networks. Never miss “Scandal” and the rest of TGIT (Thank God It’s Thursday) or a March Madness game, LIVE, again. YouTube has partnered with “local TV stations, so you’ll also get sports and local news based on where you live.”

If you want to watch the news to denounce “alternative facts” on social media, YouTube TV will have the latest from MSNBC and Fox. From movies on FX to realityTV on E!, there is a network for everyone; even the little ones with Disney and Sprout. “For an additional charge, you can add upgraded networks like Showtime, or Fox Soccer Plus.”

Unlimited storage

Love DVR but hate having to delete old recordings to make room for the new? Now you’ll be able to record live TV and never run out of storage. Record as many shows you want, anytime you want. YouTube will store your recordings for up to nine months and allows you to record as many shows as you need, at the same time without wasting your data.

Watch on any screen

YouTube TV can be watched anywhere; mobile, tablet or computer, Google Chromecast or Chromecast built-in TV. Since it works on both Android and iOS, your cloud DVR goes with you, so you can stream your recordings on any device; whenever and wherever you want.

YouTube Red Originals

Watch all of our YouTube Red Original series and movies.

Six for the price of one

Every YouTube TV membership comes with six individual accounts that are each customized with unique recommendations and  personal no storage limits DVR. Even though you get six, only three concurrent streams can be watched at a time.

No commitment at half the cost

Membership is only $35 a month and no commitments and you can cancel at anytime.

There is no official launch date but it’s said to hit the US in the coming months.
