YouTube TV gets more channels, but it comes with a price hike

YouTube TV will be adding a few new channels to its base package, filling in some of the gaps it had at launch. With that being said, it’s also increasing in price very slightly, which might be a turn-off for those cordcutters that ditched cable over rate hikes and bloated TV packages. 

All YouTube TV subscribers will be getting TBS, TNT, CNN, Cartoon Network, Adult Swim, truTV, and Turner Classic Movies, plus NBA TV and MLB Network (but no NFL Network) for sports fans. NBA All Access and MLB.TV will be optional package extras that you can purchase in the next few months, too, cementing Google’s commitment to making YouTube TV an attractive option for sports fans that don’t want cable.

New channels are great, but what is that going to cost the end user? Well, starting March 13th, the price goes up from $35 to $40. If you’re already subscribed or if you subscribe before the price increase, you’ll be locked into that $35 price, which is definitely tempting.

Any thoughts from YouTube TV subscribers?

    The PVR is unfortunately a joke. You can not fast forward through recorded content. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised that Google would favor the advertisers over the consumer. Other than that it is an awesome product but this is a deal breaker for me.
