YouTube TV starts streaming in five USA cities

It has most of the cable TV channels you know and love, including ABC, Fox, CBS, NBC, CW, Disney, SyFy, ESPN, and 40 more, and packages them in a YouTube-style app for your viewing pleasure.

The $35 per month streaming bundle is now available in the metropolitan areas of New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco Bay Area, Chicago, and Philadelphia.

YouTube TV - the company's big push into live television streaming - is now live in five USA cities. YouTube TV now offers 39 stations, with ten more stations due to arrive soon. After the first month's payment, YouTube offers a free Google Chromecast for users to stream the service to their TVs - as long as supplies last.

Ultimately, though, YouTube TV is about YouTube getting more of its core users - 18- to 34-year-olds - to spend more time on its platforms.

You Can Tweet Longer Now with New Twitter Character Limit
Moreover, in latest update, the names of the people users are replying will be on top of the text of the actual tweet. The new update is meant to streamline the response experience on Twitter , but it might also create more confusion.

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

YouTube also announced today that subscribers would have access to six new networks at no charge: BBC America, BBC World News, AMC, Sundance, FC, and WE tv. While other streaming services offer up one week free trials, YouTube is giving subscribers 30 days totally free to get a feel for the service. Currently, YouTube TV only has four "add-on" channels that come with an extra fee, including Showtime and Fox Soccer Plus (sorry, no HBO yet).

Would you be up for ditching your cable or satellite provider for YouTube? The service also includes an unlimited "cloud DVR" so that you can record your programs to watch at a later date. No other streaming service has managed to pull this off seamlessly, so if YouTube's tech is as robust as the early reviews claim, this could be the real game-changer. The YouTube TV membership also gives you access to the YouTube Red Original series and movies.

At a competitive price and with enough quality networks signed on, YouTube TV could prove a very attractive option for young viewers who are used to on demand television, but don't want to pay cable prices.
