YouTube's live TV service is now available in select markets

Melba UnderwoodApr 06, 2017

YouTube TV will offer streams from various USA networks including CBS, Fox, NBC and ABC.

The service will available in the New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco Bay Area, Chicago and Philadelphia markets at launch with others on the way. For now, Chromecast is the only way to watch YouTube TV on the big screen, though Google says it will support more TV platforms later this year.

"However, don't count traditional providers out either, because there are still plenty of sports fans who haven't embraced smart TVs and streaming devices and expect to find their favorite live sports on their favorite cable or satellite provider".

We'll have more first impressions of YouTube TV, including how it stacks up next to the services from the other guys, soon. An image of the full channel lineup-minus some newly announced AMC networks-is below, and you can check out our previous coverage for details on what's included and what's not. More cities are expected further down the line, so if you're outside the launch regions, you'll have to satisfy your anxiety with the pre-release impressions sweeping the web.

YouTube TV is the latest streaming service to beat Apple to market, with the rumoured efforts to introduce likeminded bundle reportedly hitting multiple roadblocks.

The YouTube TV app is simple, with just three tabs for you to choose from: Library, Home, and Live.

YouTube TV is still missing channels from several major networks, such as Turner, Discovery, and Viacom. While not available yet, AMC, BBC America, IFC, and Sundance TV are on their way. And you're still getting all popular channels on cable in addition to local CBS, NBC, FOX, and ABC stations. Users can also watch shows previously only accessible on YouTube Red, the company's ad-free subscription service, which also has original series and movies.

For storing content, YouTube TV gives you an unlimited cloud DVR which can record as many shows as you'd like and store them for however long you want.

We hope to get our hands on YouTube TV soon.
