YouTube TV still costs just $35 per month, includes really slick apps on mobile and Android TV, has built-in free DVR, and has a pretty solid channel lineup. It isn’t perfect, though. In my opinion, the lack of Turner networks (TNT, TBS, etc.), as well as missing Food and Travel Channels are close to being dealbreakers. At $35, you may not mind.
I’ve been using the service for a good couple of months now after ditching Playstation Vue and really like it. Outside of the missing channels, I don’t really have many complaints. An added bonus is picture-in-picture if you are on Oreo, so you can enjoy your Kardashians recordings even as you F5 the hell out of the latest Kylie lipkit drop.
