If you’ve yet to subscribe to YouTube’s standalone online TV streaming service, you might want to do that today unless you want to pay a bit more for the service. Initially, the YouTube TV price was $35 per month but the company has now decided to increase it by $5 so unless you sign up today, you’ll have to pay $40 per month for it starting tomorrow.
YouTube TV was launched by Google in select markets last April. The service has since been rolled out in many other markets. It offers live streams from CBS, Fox, NBC, and ABC, the four major broadcast networks alongside networks like the CW, FX, ESPN, and others.
Since its launch last year, YouTube TV has grown significantly in terms of both its availability that the content offerings that subscribers can access. Some of the channels added recently include Cartoon Network, CNN, TNT, and TBS.
Google had confirmed last month that it would soon raise the YouTube TV price and the change will take effect starting tomorrow. A YouTube TV subscription will cost $40 from tomorrow which will bring it in line with competing services from Hulu and Sony.
Those who sign up for YouTube TV today will retain the original $35 per month price so unless you want to pay an additional $60 per year for the year, it would be best if you subscribed to YouTube TV today.
