YouTube TV goes live in five cities, promises more channels to come

Google reckons new AI is stamping out YouTube hate speech ads

Live sports, too, will be a major part of YouTube TV thanks to deals with the broadcast networks, national cable sports networks including ESPN, Fox Sports 1 and NBCSN, and regional sports cable networks Fox Sports and Comcast Sportsnet. The service is available in 5 select areas across the United States including New York City, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Philadelphia and Chicago and costs $35/month with a 1-month free trial.

"However, don't count traditional providers out either, because there are still plenty of sports fans who haven't embraced smart TVs and streaming devices and expect to find their favorite live sports on their favorite cable or satellite provider". Although it's only been launched in five cities, Google claims the service will come to even more USA markets very soon.

YouTube TV is the latest streaming service to beat Apple to market, with the rumoured efforts to introduce likeminded bundle reportedly hitting multiple roadblocks. More individual cities are planned before a nationwide rollout later this year.

YouTube TV is ready to take on the likes of Sling TV and PlayStation Vue-at least in a handful of markets. The service is also available on the web, iOS, and Android. But Google-owned YouTube TV offers several features the others don't. YouTube says that AMC, BBC America, IFC, Sundance, and Telemundo will be available soon.

Time Warner and Viacom channels like CNN, TNT, MTV, Comedy Central and HBO aren't included.

For an additional monthly fee, subscribers can add Showtime and Fox Soccer Plus, with Shudder and Sundance Now launching soon. 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. Google is also throwing in access to original programming that was previously tied to the YouTube Red subscription service.

Each YouTube TV subscription comes with six accounts that get unique recommendations and personal cloud DVR storage and the ability to watch up to three streams at a time.
