After an embargo breaking article yesterday told us that YouTube TV had big plans to announce this morning, we wanted to update you now that the details are official. As expected, YouTube TV is indeed adding Turner’s family of networks (plus more), will expand to over 100 markets, and is getting a price increase on March 13 for new subscribers.
In the new channel department, YouTube TV now has access to channels including TNT, Adult Swim, TBS, CNN, Cartoon Network, truTV, and Turner Classic Movies. I just checked and they are already live here in Portland. Additionally, NBA TV and MLB Network are still coming “soon,” but will be a part of the base package once they are added.
For premium subscriptions, NBA League Pass and MLB.TV will soon be available for purchase within YouTube TV.
As for new markets, we gave you the list yesterday, but some of them include Lexington, Dayton, Honolulu, Richmond, Mobile, and Syracuse. The full list of all 100+ markets can be found here.
And finally, about that price increase. On March 13, if you sign-up for YouTube TV, you’ll pay $40 per month. That’s a $5 increase over the current $35/mo price. However, for current subscribers as well as those who sign-up before March 13, $35 is your price. So yeah, you should sign-up pretty soon here.
