YouTube's streaming TV service is finally live

YouTube TV is going live with channels from media companies including The Walt Disney Company (ABC, Disney Channel, ESPN), CBS Corporation (CBS, Showtime), 21st Century Fox (FOX, FS1, FX, FOX News Channel), and NBCUniversal (NBC, MSNBC, USA Network, Bravo).

Priced at $35, the service is available in the San Francisco Bay Area, Los Angeles, New York City, Philadelphia, and Chicago.

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

All early indications are that YouTube TV is just another great option for people who are exhausted of paying for cable.




India is a key market for YouTube and this is why the company has introduced several features to enhance the visual experience for the Indian users in the recent past. 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. Up to six people in a household can use a single YouTube TV subscription. More cities are expected further down the line, so if you're outside the launch regions, you'll have to satisfy your anxiety with the pre-release impressions sweeping the web. Viacom-owned channels including MTV and Comedy Central are not part of the lineup. While other streaming services offer up one week free trials, YouTube is giving subscribers 30 days totally free to get a feel for the service. 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 also offers unlimited cloud DVR so you can record as many shows as you want simultaneously and watch them later.

Naturally, the wealth of content available on YouTube is also integrated so after watching a show viewers will see links to related videos, perhaps from your favorite team's YouTube channel. The YouTube TV membership also gives you access to the YouTube Red Original series and movies. The online TV space is quickly becoming crowded, with even traditional cable providers preparing to launch their own streaming plans.
