While a price bump is no doubt disappointing, there are two upsides that we should mention. For starters, if you are a YouTube TV customer as of today, March 12th, you are grandfathered in at the $35 rate. Secondly, there are new channels that have been added to the lineup to help make the price increase more palatable. You now have access to over 50 networks (including ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox) along with new additions TNT, Adult Swim, TBS, CNN, Cartoon Network, truTV, and Turner Classic Movies.
The service is adding more for sports fans, like NBA TV and MLB Network, which will be included in the base subscription price. YouTube TV is also expanding to all "Top 100" U.S. television markets, allowing the streaming service to cover 85 percent of households.
In case you didn't already know, YouTube TV offers Cloud DVR functionality (no storage limits), which can be streamed to any of your devices. You can record multiple programs at once and content is stored in the cloud for up to nine months. You are also give six accounts per household, which means that you shouldn't have any trouble accessing content from multiple TVs and streaming devices in (or outside of) your household.
