YouTube TV Announced

YouTube just announced a new streaming over the top (OTT) service called YouTube TV this week. This service includes the over the air broadcasters (ABC, CBS,NBC, and FOX), ESPN, regional sports networks and other cable networks.  This is meant to go up against Sling TV, Playstation Vue, and DIRECTV Now for a competitive price of 35 dollars a month.  For that price it gives you six accounts, unlimited cloud dvr, and up to three concurrent streams at a time and the ability to access YouTube Red content included.

But there are a lot of concerns about the content of the service because there is no channels from Viacom or Turner Broadcasting. So no MTV, CNN, TBS, TNT or Comedy Central on the service. But  maybe with time they will reach agreements to include them later in their service. This is a good first step from YouTube in launching their service but as the competition against OTT providers can YouTube compete with the other providers as Hulu is about to release another OTT service. No word on when the service will go live but it is expected to be coming the next couple months.  If you want more information checkout the link below.
