As promised, YouTube’s $35-per-month YouTube TV service has landed on Apple TV.
The premium package, which offers a skinny bundle of 40+ live TV channels, has previously only been available on Apple TV if users ran it via AirPlay from an iPhone or iPad. Today marks the first time there has been a native Apple TV app.
YouTube TV, the $35-per-month alternative to cable TV, is reportedly coming to Apple TV “very soon.”
YouTube’s premium package offers a skinny bundle of 40+ live TV channels including the likes of ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC, AMC, ESPN, the Disney Channel, Fox News and Bravo. The service is available in upwards of 80 markets around the United States, covering approximately 80 percent of the U.S. population.
YouTube’s new tv streaming service for cord-cutters has finally arrived for customers in five major US markets.
The new service, dubbed YouTube TV, gives subscribers access to dozens of channels that normally would require a cable subscription, putting it in direct competition with the likes of Hulu, Sling TV, DirecTV Now and Playstation Vue.
Cord cutters just got another option for getting their TV fix over the internet.
Google-owned YouTube revealed today that is launching a new streaming TV service that will offer customers a bundle of channels from broadcast and cable networks for $35. But it might not come with all the channels you want.
