YouTube has finally unveiled its much anticipated TV services – the YouTube TV. The $35-a-month TV service will package a bundle of channels from some cable and broadcast networks as well as include a cloud DVR, with no storage limits.
The firm said: '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'
'There's no question that people love TV, from live sports to breaking news to sitcoms and dramas,' Google said.
'But the truth is, there are a lot of limitations in how to watch TV today.
'Unlike online video, people can't watch TV when they want, on any screen and on their terms, without commitments.
'Consumers have made it clear that they want live TV without all the hassle.
'They don't want to worry about their DVR filling up. They don't want to miss a great game or their favorite show because they're on the go.
'They tell us they want TV to be more like YouTube. '
In an announcement, Cristos Goodrow, vice president of engineering at YouTube, said: 'It represents the enjoyment of the fantastically diverse videos that creative people make every single day.'
'Around the world, people are spending a billion hours every day rewarding their curiosity, discovering great music, keeping up with the news, connecting with their favorite personalities, or catching up with the latest trend.'
