Do you remember when YouTube was more like public access TV with user generated content? Or when it was actually entertaining, before it started pushing network television clips and the main stream media? Remember when you cut the cord because the internet was better than cable television? Now YouTube wants to be cable television with its new streaming service.
Starting today YouTube users in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco Bay Area, Chicago, and Philadelphia can subscribe to YouTube TV. The new service offers ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC, ESPN, Fox Sports Networks, Comcast SportsNet and more for only $35 a month. Subscribers can get on demand access to all their favorite television series, and watch live sports from the NBA, MLB, NFL, and NCAA. YouTube TV also offers local programming and comes with unlimited cloud DVR.
