Google’s YouTube announced a $35 paid subscription television service today that will convince many people to give up their cable boxes. The $35 subscription provides six accounts for users to stream content from 40 providers including ESPN on their tablet, computer, mobile phone and anything Chromecast. Subscribers will also have access to YouTube Red content. The subscription also provides Cloud DVR and unlimited storage. Many of the big networks are included but CNN and MTV are not available.
Subscribers have the option to add additional premium channels for a fee. Some content will only be viewable on television or a computer. All of the shows will have advertising content. There is no launch date for the service but it is supposed to happen in the United States “within weeks and months.“
