A month ago, YouTube unveiled its TV streaming service, YouTube TV. And if you signed up on launch day to take advantage of the month-long free trial on offer, heads up: that expires tomorrow, and you’ll be charged $35 for the next month. Do you want to pay for YouTube TV? Now’s the time to decide.
If you missed the launch, then YouTube TV does offer a pretty good deal. For $35, you get access to most of the big streaming channels, including feeds from Disney, CBS, Fox, and NBCUniversal. You can watch on mobile or on a TV via a Chromecast, and there’s also an unlimited DVR function that saves recordings for nine months. There are limitations, too, but it’s a strong competitor in the market. It’ll be interesting to see if people are happy to keep paying for it.
