YouTube Announces Streaming TV Service for $35 per Month

The company dropped a potential bomb on traditional cable providers earlier this week by announcing YouTube TV, which offers subscribers over 40 channels for $35 a month. I thought it was a pretty decent deal until I realized a lot of them were just sports ( how many ESPN channels does one person need? ) . Can you pick out any networks that are worth the subscription fee?

YouTube TV includes major sports networks like ESPN and regional sports networks like Fox Sports Networks and Comcast SportsNet, so you can watch your favorite NBA or MLB teams. We’ve also partnered with local TV stations, so you’ll also get sports and local news based on where you live. And YouTube TV offers dozens of additional cable channels, so you won’t miss out on the latest news from MSNBC or Fox News, popular shows and movies from USA or FX, kids programming from the Disney Channel or Sprout, or reality TV from E! or Bravo. You can also add Showtime, or Fox Soccer Plus to your networks for an additional charge.
