Right now, YouTube Live subscribers will get access to about 40 channels, including ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox, ESPN, FX, USA, Bravo, and Disney.

Priced at $35, the service is available in the San Francisco Bay Area, Los Angeles, New York City, Philadelphia, and Chicago. That means you'll always need a mobile device running the app to start your viewing, but it also means there's very little hardware needed to start watching YouTube TV at home.

Today, YouTube TV debuts in five major US cities as Google prepares itself for battle in the live television streaming race. YouTube TV now offers 39 stations, with ten more stations due to arrive soon.

Launching today in select US cities, for $35 a month YouTube TV subscribers will have access to live primetime programming from ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC, and ESPN, as well as cable channels like FX, USA, SyFy, Bravo, and the Disney Channel. This makes YouTube TV the most robust streaming package for sports fans without any additional add-ons or bonus subscription packages. An image of the full channel lineup-minus some newly announced AMC networks-is below, and you can check out our previous coverage for details on what's included and what's not.

Just bring some back for everyone else, OK? Look out for Rick and Morty , Season 3 , Episode 2 coming to Adult Swim in 2017. The Rick And Morty Twitter account has stoked the fires of viewers' curiosity further.

YouTube TV will compete with other streaming TV services like Sling TV and AT&T's DirectTV Now.

Ultimately, though, YouTube TV is about YouTube getting more of its core users - 18- to 34-year-olds - to spend more time on its platforms. The service is also available on the web, iOS, and Android. For people living outside these five areas, the service is collecting email addresses for interested parties, for Google to send a message at a later time when YouTube TV becomes available in other markets.

YouTube TV is still missing channels from several major networks, such as Turner, Discovery, and Viacom. Users can also watch shows previously only accessible on YouTube Red, the company's ad-free subscription service, which also has original series and movies. Subscribers can record unlimited shows (as many as you want simultaneously even), and those shows will be saved for up to 9 months.
