What is Youtube TV exactly?

YouTube allows users to upload, view, rate, share, and discuss videos as well as subscribe to
other users. Last year, Youtube introduced Youtube Red, a subscription service that allows
users to watch videos without ads, access exclusive Youtube created shows, and download
videos. With the new year, Youtube has further expanded its markets with a new streaming
service called Youtube TV.

For thirty-eight dollars per month, subscribers can access sixty different channels and a
free subscription to Youtube exclusive shows with additional fees for sports channels:
Fox Soccer, Sundance, Shudder, and Showtime. This subscription allows you to record as
many videos as are available on a variety of platforms through the web on the Android,
iPhone, iPad, Google Chromecast, and Chromecast-enabled TVs.

Major channels bundled in this offer included ABC, CBS, FOX, and NBC. Although the
subscription does come with a higher cost compared to its free content on the platform,
the service has many perks as it allows the payer to share with up to six separate accounts
for streaming; however, there will be still ads on videos.

This new service has sparked new debates over the future of cable television and even the
lives of students. It strikes an unprecedented and prosperous deal for major sports channels.
People are switching to Youtube TV instead of cable for its convenience and cheaper price
compared to other cable subscriptions. Now that more content can be accessed by students,
new studies have found Youtube TV becoming a bigger distraction for students than actual
television. As a result, some parents are becoming annoyed with their children for not finishing
their homework.
