YouTube TV has announced that several new channels are coming to the streaming television service as well as growth into over 100 markets in the United States. TNT, Adult Swim, TBS, CNN, Cartoon Network, truTV, and Turner Classic Movies are the highlight channels that are added with future additions of NBA League Pass and MLB.tv coming soon.
As part of the announcement, the streaming service will increase their price for new subscribers to $40/month starting March 13th. If you are a current subscriber, your price will remain $35/month. And, as an incentive, if you sign up before March 13th, you will get the $35/month price too.
As for new markets, there are a handful: Lexington, Dayton, Honolulu, Richmond, Mobile, and Syracuse. This means that YouTube TV is now available in the top 100 markets throughout the US and you can expect this expansion to continue to smaller markets over 2018.

For those who may not recall, YouTube TV is Google’s streaming television service that, for $35 per month, you get six accounts and access to over 40 channels. You can access your account from any device even when you are not at home plus you have an unlimited storage cloud-based DVR to record shows to watch later. The service is aimed at “cord cutters”. There is no commitment to the service and you can cancel at anytime.
