YouTube TV price going up, but there's a workaround

YouTube TV price going up, but there's a workaround”

YouTube's cable-like subscription service is getting a price bump, but there's still time to save a little money if you were thinking about signing up for the service. As announced last month, the monthly cost of YouTube TV is about to increase.

YouTube TV launched last spring and has been steadily building its selection of content and expanding its availability since. YouTube TV now costs $35 a month for subscribers, but starting tomorrow, that price will jump to $40 per month. The price hike is likely due to a combination of rising programming costs, the additional channels that YouTube TV has added to its standard package, and the fact that the service doesn't need such a low introductory price any more. 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. YouTube TV now carries over 50 networks and is offered in 100 markets, so it's been expanding pretty quickly in the time since it launched previous year.

Yet there are a few cheaper options out there: DirecTV Now also starts at $35, and Sling TV starts at $20.

The new $40 rate will bring the YouTube service up to the same price offered by many of its competitors. If you've decided that you want to sign up before the price hike goes into effect, you can register over at YouTube TV's website.
