List of Channels Available on YouTube TV
Like Fubo TV and Sling TV, YouTube TV is a live streaming service that’s a better alternative to cable TV. When you pay the YouTube TV monthly subscription fee, you won’t need to pay for the included channels, as is the case with cable TV.
What’s more, unlike cable TV, which requires you to have a TV in your home, you can stream YouTube TV on just about any internet-ready smart device out there, including desktops, gaming consoles (PS and Xbox), laptops, smartphones, tablets, smart projectors, and TVs, etc.
In addition, if you have a Google TV smart projector or TV setup in your lounge, YouTube TV integrates with Google TV, so the live sports, movies, and TV shows you’re watching on the platform will appear on your home screen.
In this review, we’ll first look at how much the various YouTube TV bundles cost and proceed to check out the channels in each bundle. Let’s go!
How Much Does YouTube TV Cost?
The Basic YouTube TV plan costs $64.99 per month for over 85 channels. But you can get it at the moment with $10 off for the first three months. The basic plan includes unlimited DVR recording, up to six users per household, and three concurrent streams.
In addition, YouTube TV is one of the few live streaming services with a seven-day free trial, so you can try it out to ensure it’s something you want to pay for in the future.
If you speak Spanish, you can include the Spanish bundle, which has an extra 28 channels for $35 per month. T-Mobile customers also get $10 off their monthly plan thanks to a partnership between T-Mobile and YouTube TV.
