YouTube TV rolls out in five cities with free Chromecast offer


The service offers content from popular networks such as s ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC, ESPN, Fox Sport and more.

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

At launch, YouTube TV will be available for streaming via Google Chromecast or Chromecast built-in TVs, as well as Android and iOS devices.

All early indications are that YouTube TV is just another great option for people who are exhausted of paying for cable. YouTube TV's content offering isn't drastically different to what you can get from Sling or AT&T's DirecTV Now, so YouTube is hoping that the simple pricing and its slick apps can be the difference.

Pence casts tie-breaking vote that could cut Planned Parenthood grants
The vast majority of votes for the legislation were from men, who make up 80 percent of the 115th Congress. The measure barely passed with tie-breaking vote from Vice-President Mike Pence.

Ultimately, though, YouTube TV is about YouTube getting more of its core users - 18- to 34-year-olds - to spend more time on its platforms. For an extra fee, you'll also be able to add Showtime and Fox Soccer Plus. But unlike those options, YouTube TV is not available in any markets where it can't offer all four major broadcast networks. While not available yet, AMC, BBC America, IFC, and Sundance TV are on their way.

Time Warner and Viacom channels like CNN, TNT, MTV, Comedy Central and HBO aren't included. 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. Users can also watch shows previously only accessible on YouTube Red, the company's ad-free subscription service, which also has original series and movies.

Channel mix aside, YouTube is touting the strength of its cloud DVR feature, which has no storage limits (like Sling TV) and will hang onto recordings for nine months (a half-year longer than PlayStation Vue). No other streaming service has managed to pull this off seamlessly, so if YouTube's tech is as robust as the early reviews claim, this could be the real game-changer. The online TV space is quickly becoming crowded, with even traditional cable providers preparing to launch their own streaming plans.
