YouTube Go beta version released in India

YouTube unveils India mobile app for spotty Internet signals

The monthly fee for YouTube TV is a flat $35, and a basic Chromecast costs $35, so together the deal is a $70 value.

YouTube TV is now available in New York, Los Angeles, the San Francisco Bay Area, Chicago, and Philadelphia "with more USA markets coming soon".

Channels include live streams from ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox, and more for 50 channels total.

Subscribers can watch YouTube TV on their phone, tablet or computer, and one membership can be shared among six users.

YouTube is also offering a complimentary Google Chromecast, while supplies last, after your first month's payment. YouTube TV will also offer Sundance Now for an additional $7 per month, and Shudder for an additional $5 per month.

This means that for those living in other cities/states in the U.S., you guys are out of luck for now although YouTube does plan to expand to more markets in the future.

For those who want to try out the service first before subscribing, Google is offering a free one month of YouTube TV. However, it's not yet clear whether YouTube plans to bring the platform to its smart TV apps.

The addition shows that "our networks have become must-have programming services for viewers", says AMC Networks President of Distribution Bob Broussard.

"We started evaluating this two years ago", said Kelly Merryman, vp of content partnerships for YouTube. YouTube TV will be available on Chromecast and Chromecast enabled devices as well as iOS and Android devices. Subscribers can access their unlimited cloud DVR storage systems for recording and watching live TV later from any device. The Google boycott has forced YouTube to demonetize more user created videos which has caused a decrease in revenue for some of the service's most popular personalities. "Based on where you live, you'll get your local broadcast TV stations covering local sports and news". Further, YouTube Go has social features that enables you to share videos quickly and easily with friends and family.
