YouTube TV Adds Turner Channels, Raises Price

Share

YouTube TV is widening its reach and expanding its offering, but it will also increase the base price for new customers.

To be fair, there are some excellent channels joining the lineup: TNT, Adult Swim, TBS, CNN, Cartoon Network, truTV and Turner Classic Movies, for starters. Now, that error has been rectified.

YouTube TV also includes access to YouTube Red Originals - premium ad-free content made by YouTube stars - a service that is usually offered through a separate subscription.

As for new markets, we gave you the list yesterday, but some of them include Lexington, Dayton, Honolulu, Richmond, Mobile, and Syracuse.

These advances come at a price.

Google is increasing the price of YouTube TV for new customers to $40 per month, the company announced. For now, the price hike only applies to new subscribers.

The service unveiled the news today on its company blog, adding that it is expanding to all top 100 US markets, or more than 85% of USA households.

YouTube TV, the live TV streaming service that launched in April 2017, is adding more channels and more markets - but it's also getting more expensive. It looks like we won't be seeing the increase, we will continue to pay the $35USD a month.

YouTube first unveiled YouTube TV in March a year ago and it is now available in 80 markets.

For now, the price will remain at $35USD a month but only for a limited time.

At Recode's Code Media conference this week, YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki called YouTube TV "a huge area of growth for the long term", adding that "OTT is a big area".
