Google's excellent cable alternative
9.2 / 10  Review Rating

Whenever there’s a big revolution in tech, you can bet that Google will get involved. YouTube TV is Google’s foray into the “skinny bundle” market. It shares a brand name with our favorite source of cute cat videos, but YouTube TV is much more like Sling TV or Hulu + Live TV. YouTube TV offers a cable-like bundle of live TV channels. It costs a lot less than old-school cable and satellite plans do, but it includes many of the same great channels — as you’ll see in a moment when you scroll down to our YouTube TV channel list. Is it worth what YouTube TV costs? That's your decision to make!

The YouTube TV channel lineup is one of the reasons we praised the service in our YouTube TV review. Check out the full list below, or head over to our complete live TV streaming service channel comparison chart to see how Google’s service measures up against competitors like fuboTV.

    Still looking for a DVR, something like the TiVo Roameo but better. Wish they would upgrade. I never watch “Live” TV.

    1. Laurie says:

      I can set it up to record all the shows I want to watch on you tube just like I did on my direct tv dvr.

      1. Judy says:

        How do you record with YouTube thanks

        1. Peggy says:

          I see many comments about no hallmark and you neglect to respond to whether or not they will ever get it. Please respond. Also what about PBS will they ever get that too? Thanks so much

          1. Stephen Lovely says:

            Hi Peggy, thanks for reading. We don’t know if YouTube TV has any plans to add those channels — your guess is as good as ours! Live TV streaming services do add (and remove) channels all the time, though, so it’s worth keeping an eye out.

          2. Kathy Cook says:

            Sounds great except non of the channel’s I watch are lusted . If tv , to ,discovery ,all the crime tv channels .paramount an the list goes on .

          3. dennis says:

            wish you offered the hallmark channels—–

            Do you plan on offering it soon?

          4. says:

            I too am looking for the Hallmark channels. Sling TV offers all as 3 as a $5 add on , but no live local networks. ABC. NBC. CBS. FOX.

            Does anyone know if this will be a UTube option

          5. Matt says:

            PBS is on YouTube tv in my area but not mynetwork tv

          6. Fred Buford says:

            You don’t want PBS. That’s a liberal indoctrination station, just like NPR, CNN, MSNBC etal.

          7. Anonymous says:

            I agree

        2. Daryl says:

          Just add the shows you wish to record into the library. Once they are listed there they will record automatically. Then just go back into your library for viewing.

        3. Brenda says:

          Select what you want as favorite. It will record the show.

      2. MARY says:

        Can you get TLC channel..I do not see it listed

        1. Mihele says:

          Yes, TLC is included in the youtube tv channel line up

    2. Zane says:

      YouTubeTV should add Weatherscan and The Weather Channel and NFL RedZone and NFL Network and ESPN Goal Line & Bases Loaded.

      1. 13 Blooming Roses says:

        I’m in Phoenix, Arizona and, except for Hallmark, I get all of the channels that you all have listed.

        By the way, Mr Buford, There are a lot of us that like PBS for all of the wonderful series (Downton Manor, etc) as well as animal, environmental and historical programing. This really isn’t the place for politics, ideology or any of that other sillyness that’s going on out there. I respect your beliefs and I’ll defend your right to have them to the death. But just not here, OK.

        Have a great rest of your week.
        Be Safe, Be Kind, Be Loved.

        Can you please get Fox Sports North back. Baseball will be starting in a couple months and hockey is going on right now. Come on why did you drop it.

        1. Anonymous says:

          I left Cox Cable in Phoenix, because YouTube TV included Fox Sports Arizona channel so I could watch my favorite Arizona sports teams. That service was dropped. Now that the season is coming around again, I am considering going back to Cox Cable and leaving your service. Please let me know if the situation is changing in the near future. I will be making a final decision shortly. I would be willing to pay a premium so I don’t have to go back to cable.

          1. Bob says:

            I agree with the question regarding Fox Sports regional sports networks. I live in Kansas City and Fox Sports Midwest was dropped by YouTube TV. I want to be able to watch the Royals. What are the plans for the Fox Regional Sports networks? Can it be added to the Sports add on package? I would rather pay extra than switch back to cable. But if I have to, I will.

  3. Rho says:

    Not one channel with black content. That is awful. BET, OWN, nor TV ONE. Smh.

    1. B says:

      Those channels are owned by Viacom. Viacom also owns MTV, VH1, Logo, Comedy Channel, TV Land, and Nickelodeon, none of which are carried by YoutubeTV. I suspect this more of an issue with Viacom and Youtube not reaching an agreement than it is an issue of racism, if that’s what you were implying.

      1. JH says:

        Well said. I hope it’s not what Rho was implying. I’m tired of people’s first thought being racism rather than a knowledgeable answer like yours. The term is too serious and accusatory to be used so randomly as of late….smh

      Quit being racial… all of the other channels also have black content… You simply pick and choose what you want to watch thats all. To many black people only care about black people when they should be caring about ALL PEOPLE. We are the human race… we are all humans… and I’m sure You tube simply tries to get the channels that all the people seem to want to watch the most .

      Hi Peggy,

      Don’t know where you live but here in Phoenix, AZ we have had BS on YTTV for the whole 1 1/2 yrs that I’ve been back in the city. I lived in Northern AZ for 12 years after y husband passed and If I hd bee able to get YTTV there, I would have been saving $165.00 that Dishnetwork was costing me.

      Anyway, It could be that providers in other markets can only get certain Network blocks or programing bundles or some markets may only be allowed to get certain programs or networks at specific times of the year (maybe when the Nielson Ratings are published). We’ll just have to wait until our providers get lucky and acquires the rights to the networks or programs we’re wishing for.

      Good Day, Peggy, have a great rest of your week

    A lot of buffering thinking about canceling espically during Prime viewing hours ,commands slow to respond. Hoping service improves as they get mature.

      No there is no Hallmark or lifetime channel on YouTube tv. I think you can pay 3.39 a month to have lifetime added. Which brings it to about 54.00 a month.

    1. Stephen Lovely says:

      Hi Bob, thanks for reading! Yes, you should be able to use YouTube TV with a Samsung Smart TV. According to YouTube TV’s website, you can stream on up to three devices at once. Hope this helps!

  18. chris says:

    is there an on demand feature available

    1. Stephen Lovely says:

      Yes, YouTube TV has some on-demand content! What’s available varies by channel, but it’s usually stuff that has recently aired. If you’re looking for a more extensive on-demand library, you might want to consider Hulu + Live TV. Thanks for reading!

    1. Stephen Lovely says:

      YouTube TV doesn’t have Paramount Network right now, unfortunately. Whether YouTube TV will add it is hard to say — it’s up to them and the folks at Paramount to work out a deal. You could email YouTube TV to let them know how you feel, or you could try one of its competitors — Philo, fuboTV, and Sling TV all have Paramount Network right now:

    i would like to see youTube add the Paramount Channel. i want to see “Yellowstone”.

  40. Joan Kennedy says:

    After serious comparisons of streaming services, we have chosen YouTubeTV. Armed with a list of favorites, YouTubeTV was the only one that offered everything we were looking for – including our local channels. History Channel (live programming) was the only missing one for us, but we believe that is the fault of the History Channel – not the YouTubeTV Service. (The History Channel seems to demand separate payment). We have not regretted chosing YouTubeTV Service. It is quality given at a fantastic price. Finally cut the cord from Direct TV.

    1. Stephen Lovely says:

      Yes, you’ll just need to log into the service on each TV. You can do that on the TV itself, if it’s a smart TV. Otherwise, you’ll need something like a Roku device to attach to the TV.

    Sad that YouTube TV DOES NOT Also have these channels ME TV, Get TV, Heroes And Icon(H&I), ION, ION Plus, Localish, Laffy, Qubo and all of the big cities own local channels that are not connected to a big Network. Especially the San Francisco Bay Area, Los Angeles, Orange Country CA, Orlando FL, New York, Seattle WA, Las Vegas NV and Washington D.C.. IT VERY IMPORTANT TO ALSO HAVE THOSE CHANNELS ALSO. FOR ONE THING NO ONE WANTS TO MISS ANY OF THEIR LOCAL CHANNELS THAT ARE NOT CONNECTED TO ANY NETWORKS, BESIDE THE OTHER NETWORKS.

  56. Brian Duty says:

    The sad truth about streaming is that it was revolutionary with HULU. Now you have every network in the world vying for attention. That comes in the way of streamers fighting for popular channels. Cord cutting is still the best way to go, for now. Over saturation of services maintains exclusives will push prices higher- welcome to capitalism. We all love USA, but to play you pay.

  57. Dieter Hinkelmann says:

    I pay $72 w tax and services for 2 hopers and 200 hours DVR with Dish and all channels and all local channels are the same as the 64.99 package that don’t have local channels and no DVR, so not really a good deal or savings, not sure what youtubetv means by savings, no equipment to rent, so it is very expensive using youtubetv

  59. Graham Brown, ( says:

    I still want a service that I can choose the line up – I definitely don’t want any money gong to Fox. When are we going to have choice by corporate responsibility?

    1. Stephen Lovely says:

      I agree with you, Karla! It’s a tough situation because a lot of channels are owned by the same companies, and they know they’ll make more money when they bundle them. I wish we could all subscribe to channels one at a time, but “skinny bundles” are the closest thing we have to that right now.

  63. Robert Rousselle says:

    What happened to nesn channel

  64. Daisy says:

    The same run around as Cable, sign up for 49.99 to save over Cable and here we are at 64.99. Just went to Xfinity and they can beat you again! I believe you were making at 49.99 and adding stations! Take Fox off and you really lose! The Fox haters have every other news channel but Fox, Newsmax and OAN, which, by the way I would appreciate you carrying along with Hallmark. Cable has these. Don’t fall into the censorship trap.

  65. Al says:

    No History channel? I need it!

  67. David says:

    Can you get MLB games on YouTubeTV like you can on Dish with their Extra Innings package ? I watch MLB and the season starts in April so trying to see if I can get that

    1. Stephen Lovely says:

      No, but you can get the same thing from MLB TV! It will be in a separate app that way, but it’s easy to switch back and forth between the YouTube TV and MLB TV apps on a streaming device like a Roku or Fire TV.

    Sports buff here, I love college football and I love my YouTube TV. I am a little no a lot upset they don’t have SEC + like all the other streaming providers. I live in the SEC footprint (Go Gamecocks) and have multiple Big10 channels which is of no interest to SEC fans. One would be enough.

    The current channels are great for us and after setting my lineup order I found my self using only about 48 of the 85 channels. Come on guys college football is just around the corner. Don’t be like Directv and make us pay more for a simple channel.

    Thank You and Goodnight

    I heard that in 2021 YouTube TV was adding MeTv to their line up. Is this true and if so how can you do a “program” search on YouTube TV?

    Where is the CW TV ? I see it on your tv channel lineup but I cannot find it on the TV. What’s up?
