A live TV bundle from YouTube that’s coming in the next few months will cost subscribers $35 a month and will offer more than 40 channels, Deadline.com reports. The Internet based skinny bundle, dubbed YouTube TV, is seen as a competitor for Sling TV, AT&T’s DirecTV Now and Sony’s PlayStation Vue.
“The Big Four broadcast networks — ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox — will be available at launch, along with their associated cable channels such as ESPN, USA Network and FX,” Deadline reports. “Showtime will be available for an additional fee. The package includes 10 sports networks, MSNBC, CBS News, Fox News, Disney Channel, Bravo and E! as well as local channel offerings.”
Hulu and Apple TV are among the other services said to be working on entries into the same space.
