  • Google announces YouTube TV in the US to compete with cable companies

YouTube TV, Google's new skinny bundle of live-streaming broadcast and cable channels, is clearly the company's attempt to challenge traditional pay-TV distributors and appeal to cord-cutters.

YouTube TV will also include access to YouTube Red Originals, and further hoping to entice potential customers, comes with up to 6 accounts, so sharing access across the entire family shouldn't be an issue.

"YouTube TV gives you the best of live TV, from must-see broadcast shows like "Empire, ' 'The Voice, ' 'The Big Bang Theory" and 'Scandal, ' to the live sports you want" the firm said.

Amidst the seemingly endless supply of subscription-based television options, YouTube has made a decision to throw its hat into the ring with the announcement of YouTube TV.

Viewers will be able to record as many shows without using data or space on the phone and YouTube will store each of the recordings for nine months.

Now the new service streams ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC, ESPN, regional sports networks and several other cable channels.

You can watch YouTube TV on any screen-mobile, tablet or computer-and you can easily stream to your TV with a Google Chromecast or Chromecast built-in TV.

YouTube TV app will be available sometime in Spring. YouTube TV, for instance, won't feature content from Time Warner or Viacom, meaning popular channels like CNN, Discovery, TBS and TNT are all missing.

The service will compete with other streaming services like Sling TV, DirectTV Now and Sony PlayStation Vue, the report says. At present, it will first launch in the United States, but Google will be angling to get rights to take this worldwide....
