Both Twitter and Facebook is pushing for live streaming rights as the platforms are planning on bringing more functionalities to increase users’ engagement. YouTube is no different and it’s actually pretty different from other social media platforms as users use the service mainly to watch video related products. And now, the platform has introduced its own streaming service named YouTube TV which is now available in Chicago, Los Angeles, New York City, Philadelphia, and the San Francisco Bay area.
If you are interested in the service, you can opt for free 30-day trial and after your first payment, you will be able to experience free Chromecast for a limited time period. Similar to other streaming providers, the YouTube TV will give you access to live contents from 50 television channels. In addition to major television channels, you will also get access to original video content from YouTube Red.
Similar to other contents from the service, users will be able to stream contents directly on their iOS and Android Devices along with different browsers. Recently, Google updated YouTube TV Update to feature Airplay in the App Store.
Unlike other streaming providers, YouTube’s streaming service provides options to add up to 6 profiles and three simultaneous streams per account. Besides this, the service offers unlimited DVR Storage to watch and record contents in case they are unable to watch programs live.
Although YouTube TV is available in only selected regions, the company stated that they are planning on adding more regions in the coming weeks. However, the company hasn’t released any data regarding which region is next.
