YouTube just added more of your favorite channels to YouTube TV
It only took a month for YouTube’s TV killer to add to its roster of channels.
YouTube’s live TV offering — conveniently called YouTube TV — now includes AMC, IFC, BBC America, Sundance TV, Telemundo, and We TV, reports 9-to-5 Google.
Those new additions bring YouTube TV’s total channels to 43, including the major broadcast networks and most major cable channels.
Google, through YouTube, is looking to TV as a way to kickstart the video platform’s subscription business and gain broader entry into users’ living rooms. The service is among the most competitive entrants in a growing field of internet-based TV offerings such as Sling, PlayStation Vue, DirecTV Now, and Hulu TV. YouTube TV received a “Mashable Choice,” Mashable‘s spotlight on recommended products, for its $35 package.
YouTube doesn’t offer the same kind of cheaper “skinny bundle” that Dish’s Sling does ($20 for 15 channels), but its package is now $5 cheaper than Dish’s comparable bundle.
