With YouTube being the platform in which you can watch all kinds of videos, ranging from pre-recorded to content to live streams, we guess it made sense that eventually YouTube would start to offer up TV-like content, and that’s exactly what they have done as they have officially announced YouTube TV.

This service has actually been rumored about for a while now and it looks like it has finally come to fruition According to YouTube’s announcement, “Live TV streaming from ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC, ESPN, regional sports networks and dozens of popular cable networks. YouTube TV gives you the best of live TV, from must-see broadcast shows like “Empire,” “The Voice,” “The Big Bang Theory” and “Scandal,” to the live sports you want. YouTube TV includes major sports networks like ESPN and regional sports networks like Fox Sports Networks and Comcast SportsNet, so you can watch your favorite NBA or MLB teams.”

The service will also let users record live TV shows and will never have to worry about running out of storage. It will also work across multiple devices that can run YouTube, such as your TV via Chromecast, your phone, tablet, or computer. You’ll also be able to tune into  YouTube Red Originals, and you’ll be able to juggle as many as 6 accounts at once.

Of course this won’t be free as YouTube TV will cost $35 a month, but if you think that this is worth the subscription then you’ll want to head on over to its website where you can sign up to be notified when the service has launched in your area.
