The video platform on the Internet, YouTube announced that it will launch an online television service with live channel packages. This as a direct competition to pay television.
Unlike the free YouTube service you know so well, YouTube TV is a direct cable competitor that you will have to pay. It will feature television channels such as ABC, CBS, Fox and NBC, ESPN, Disney, Fox News and Bravo. In addition YouTube TV claims that it is still negotiating with some program providers to add channels. Subscribers will not only have access to YouTube TV's television content, as the service includes access to movies and programs that were exclusive to YouTube Network. This platform already offered payment content through Originals, the film and series producer By the best creators of YouTube.
"YouTube TV is designed specifically for the needs of a new generation of TV fans who want to see what they want, when they want, as they want, without compromise", said Susan Wojcicki, executive director of YouTube.
