Google is expanding its cord-cutting streaming service YouTube TV, with the service to come to 95 new markets, expanding its reach in the United States.
Launched two years ago, YouTube TV offers consumers sports, news, and shows—without the hassles that come with traditional cable TV. Just in time for the Big Game, Google is rolling out YouTube TV to 95 markets starting today, covering over 98 percent of households in the United States. The remainder will follow shortly thereafter, Gogole said.
As a reminder, YouTube TV offers cable-free live TV. It includes:
- Over 60 networks, such as ABC, CBS, FOX and NBC. Plus, popular cable networks like TNT, TBS, CNN, ESPN, FX and on-demand programming.
- A cloud DVR with no storage space limits. This enables subscribers to record live TV and never run out of storage space. Also, you can record shows simultaneously without using data or space on your device.
- The ability to watch YouTube TV on any screen – mobile devices, tablets, computers and TVs.
- Six accounts per household. Every YouTube TV membership comes with six accounts, each with its own unique recommendations and a personal DVR with no storage space limits.
- Half the cost of cable with zero commitments. A YouTube TV membership is only $40 a month and there are no commitments – you can cancel anytime.
