YouTube TV Sports Offerings Grow With NBA TV & MLB Network


YouTube TV has more offerings for sports fans now and will have even more arriving in the near future, thanks to the addition of NBA TV and the MLB Network. As the names make obvious, that means new opportunities to watch or stream basketball and baseball content for subscribers. Of course, it goes without saying that it may take some time for the networks to show up on everybody's devices. That's made all the more clear by the fact that the company reportedly said they'd arrive "soon" but the channels are already showing up in some areas. Plans for even more content, to be added later on at a premium, have also been revealed. Those will include offerings for NBA League Pass and MLB.TV subscriptions. Unfortunately, there aren't currently any details with regard to how much those will cost or when they'll be available aside from a statement that they would become available in the "coming months."

In the meantime, the service, for those who aren't already aware, is effectively a cable-replacement option for cord cutters. It also comes with unlimited DVR features. That means that not only will subscribers have access to a wide variety of movies, as well as sponsored YouTube content for days when television just isn't cutting it. Users can record an unlimited amount of TV episodes and movies to watch later on. Thanks to Google's decision to link the service to a mobile application, most of those can be watched on the go, as well. These new additions come on top of the service's growing list of more than 50 networks, offered at just $35 per month for users who sign up before March 13. That also includes local channels in most areas. Users who sign up after that date will be subject to an increased cost – $40 per month – as the company looks to keep itself profitable in order provide access to even more content in the future.

More recently, YouTube TV saw the addition of several new networks, including Adult Swim, Cartoon Network, CNN, TBS, TNT, truTV, and Turner Classic Movies (TCM). More content is expected to continue being added over time, as Google builds out its cable competitor. So it's probably a good idea to take advantage of current pricing instead of waiting for more channels to be added.
