  • YouTube TV streaming plan

YouTube TV subscribers will be able to watch original programming that appears on YouTube Red, a subscription service that includes movies and shows starring popular YouTube video creators.

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

Interested? You can sign up at youtube.tv.com to get a notification once the service is available. You'll get live national streams of ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC, and ESPN, as well as some regional sports networks and cable channels. At the time it was labeled YouTube Unplugged, but obviously that has changed.

YouTube isn't ruling out working with those programmers down the line. In practice, it looks a lot like the streaming services that have entered the market before it, but with a healthy dose of trademark Google simplicity and powerful artificial intelligence behind the scenes.

The cloud DVR feature is particularly welcomed, and is also unlimited - you won't have to pay extra, and you won't run out of space.

Google Nexus 6P Receives Android 7.1.2 Nougat Developer Preview
For English-speaking Android users in the U.S, Canada, the United Kingdom and Australia, the update should be arriving this week. Once again, the Mountain View company stated that additional languages will be coming too Google Assistant over the coming year.

"Reliability and scalability" - a not-veiled reminder that other digital TV services have had technical struggles when they first launched.

YouTube TV will cost $35 per month when it becomes available later this year; the company didn't offer an exact release date.

Figuring out which one of these makes sense for you will require substantial work on your part, as you figure out what kind of programming you really want, and what the various services offer: DirecTV Now, for instance, includes cables channels that YouTube TV doesn't have, like MTV, AMC and CNN, but it doesn't have CBS.

Not all TV networks are included in this service. And none of the streaming TV services will let you watch football on your phone, because those rights, for now, are exclusive to Verizon.

At an event today in Los Angeles, the Google subsidiary unveiled YouTube TV, billing it as a way to reimagine television for the YouTube generation. Hulu also is developing a live TV service.
