The service, called YouTube TV and priced at $35 a month, will offer all the broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, Fox and NBC), sports channels like ESPN, cable networks like FX and USA, 24-hour news like Fox News, kids programming like Sprout and local TV networks, among other channels.
It will have an unlimited cloud DVR to record shows and watch them later, and the service will roll out progressively in the US, starting with large metropolitan areas. A single subscription unlocks six accounts for a household.
Not a bad lineup, and hits most of the few I watch, AMC for TWD is the notable exception. Looks like college sports is well covered though.
CW is a nice surprise, although I expect the locals to be like other services and not offered everywhere.
Vue didn't go out on me either last night, but when I first launched it on my PS4 a little after 7 pm PST, I got a message about certain features not being available and I was just given a complete list of channels to select from.
