YouTube's Live TV Streaming Service Is Officially Available for Subscription

YouTube TV's lineup covers more than 50 channels, including ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox, ESPN, Fox Sports networks, and Comcast SportsNet. The service is available in 5 select areas across the U.S. including New York City, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Philadelphia and Chicago and costs $35/month with a 1-month free trial.

Those who are able to tune into YouTube TV on Wednesday won't find anything different from what was unveiled in late February.

Today, YouTube TV debuts in five major US cities as Google prepares itself for battle in the live television streaming race. Although it's only been launched in five cities, Google claims the service will come to even more US markets very soon. After the first month's payment, YouTube offers a free Google Chromecast for users to stream the service to their TVs - as long as supplies last. Sony previously tried that strategy with Vue, but altered course a year ago for its nationwide rollout. YouTube says that AMC, BBC America, IFC, Sundance, and Telemundo will be available soon. Sundance Now and Shudder will also be available as individual add-ons, joining Fox Soccer Plus and Showtime. Earlier this month, Turner CEO John Martin said YouTube was making a "big mistake" by omitting its networks, which include TNT, CNN, and TBS.

Bulldogs, Gamecocks to clash in all-SEC championship game

That means YouTube TV will need a way to stand out amongst the competition, either by offering better service (something we've had problems with with other providers), better pricing, or better channel selections. Just like the regular YouTube app, you can watch one channel in a picture-in-picture box at the bottom of the screen while browsing for other channels. YouTube TV allows up to six people on one account, with the option for three to watch simultaneously. Will the many young viewers who watch YouTube videos actually consider paying for a streaming service to see more conventional TV? The YouTube TV membership also gives you access to the YouTube Red Original series and movies.

The service still has some of the annoyances of traditional cable TV, like religious geo-locking.
