YouTube Is Launching a Streaming Service With Real Cable Channels

The charge is $35 monthly, and the channels include the four top broadcast networks, CBS, NBC, ABC and Fox, and top cable channels like USA, Bravo, MSNBC and Fox News. Local news programming from network affiliates will also be included, according to Robert Kyncl, YouTube's chief business officer. There are no DVR storage limits, just a nine-month time limit.

CNBC also reports Hulu is planning to launch its own cable-like streaming service. The company did not announce a specific release date for YouTube TV, saying only that the service will be available "soon in the largest US markets" before expanding coverage to the rest of the country. A YouTube TV membership is only $35 a month and there are no commitments-you can cancel anytime.

Mnuchin: Trump Isn't Cutting Medicare, Social Security
If Mnuchin's comments are correct, the president would be making good on his campaign promise to not make cuts to Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid.

The service's announcement comes on the heels of news that people spend a whopping one billion hours watching content on YouTube per day. Those interested in the service can sign up to be notified when the option launches in their area.

"We're bringing the best of the YouTube experience to live TV", YouTube announced today. That TV should be "more like YouTube". Subscribers will also get access to shows that had previously been available exclusively on YouTube Red. Think of Red as a YouTube-ified version of Netflix with Spotify mixed in - it removes advertising, unlocks access to exclusive shows and includes an all-you-can-eat music service. YouTube has been at the forefront of playing on-demand and live videos for years now, and happily runs thousands of livestreams with millions of viewers on a regular basis. Content can be watched using Chromecast, iOS, and Android. But with its tremendous advantages in software and an existing loyal user base on YouTube, Google faces an enormous opportunity to compete in live television, as well.
