After months of speculation, YouTube has announced its own streaming TV service today (Feb. 28) at an event in Los Angeles. The streaming giant’s bundle will offer live-stream broadcasting and cable television programming along with its abundant of online content already on its site.
YouTube TV will exist as a standalone app. For only $35 a month, subscribers get all four major networks — ABC, CBS, FOX, and NBC — and roughly 35 cable channels. Up to six accounts can login to the app, and each member of the household can have a personalized account that offers recommendations to their liking. Only three accounts will be allowed to stream simultaneously.
Like many other streaming apps, it’s range of channels will be limited. Meaning you won’t be able to get CNN, TBS, TNT, or any Viacom channels.
No official launch date has been announced, so stay tuned for more details.
