This week, YouTube announced the imminent launch of YouTube TV, its $35/month OTT offering that comes complete with 40 broadcast and cable networks, including NBC, ABC, CBS, Fox, ESPN, the Disney Channel, Bravo and more.
‘s Alan Breznick, “The new YouTube TV offering, which will launch first in major markets throughout the US, does have a number of key things in its favor. First, it won’t require subscribers to sign a contract for a certain term, so subscriptions can be cancelled any time. Second, the new skinny bundle package will include all four major US broadcast networks — ABC, CBS, Fox and NBC — as well as dozens of major cable networks, including Bravo, the Disney Channel, E!, Fox News, FX, MSNBC, Sprout and USA Network. It will also include such major cable sports players as ESPN, Fox Sports Network and Comcast SportsNet and offer access to content from the YouTube Red premium service. Third, YouTube TV will offer unlimited cloud DVR recording.”
