YouTube TV Is Here
I got an email yesterday afternoon informing me that YouTube TV is available in the Philadelphia Area. I signed up for the free trial immediately. YouTube TV is priced at $35 a month and seems to cater to sports lover with their channel lineup.
YouTube TV is only available in 5 US cities as of right now. The cities are New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia and the San Francisco Bay Area.
One of the things I am impressed with the most is YouTube TV offering Comcast Sports Network. For years the only way you could watch the bulk of Phillies games was to have a Comcast cable subscription.
YouTube TV allows you to share their service with 5 other people simply by having a google account. Let’s say you split the cost with just one person you will end up paying a little under $19 a piece. Not Bad?
If you keep your subscription pass the free trial, you will receive a free Google Chromecast. YouTube TV also informs you that the 1st generation Chromecast may experience issues when you try to cast YouTube TV to it. I have the 1st generation Chromecast and it does take a moment to load when you select channels or changes channels, but it has been pretty smooth after it loads.
