Live sports, too, will be a major part of YouTube TV thanks to deals with the broadcast networks, national cable sports networks including ESPN, Fox Sports 1 and NBCSN, and regional sports cable networks Fox Sports and Comcast Sportsnet.

The service will available in the New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco Bay Area, Chicago and Philadelphia markets at launch with others on the way. Since these networks are commercial supported so is YouTube TV. YouTube TV now offers 39 stations, with ten more stations due to arrive soon. The move to allow users share videos offline on YouTube Go app similar to sharing files on Shareit, will allow Google to tap new data starved users and engage with them before they come online.

Ultimately, though, YouTube TV is about YouTube getting more of its core users - 18- to 34-year-olds - to spend more time on its platforms. Up to six people in a household can use a single YouTube TV subscription. YouTube says that AMC, BBC America, IFC, Sundance, and Telemundo will be available soon. All in all, the list totals 50 channels, with add-on options such as Showtime, horror streaming site Shudder, and Sundance Now.

Trail Blazers' momentum takes hit with breakout star Jusuf Nurkic's broken leg
After recording 13 turnovers or more in four straight games, the Blazers have had 12 or fewer in the past two games. The Blazers average 108.3 points per game, which is their highest scoring average since 1992-93 (108.5).

Time Warner and Viacom channels like CNN, TNT, MTV, Comedy Central and HBO aren't included. YouTube TV's content offering isn't drastically different to what you can get from Sling or AT&T's DirecTV Now, so YouTube is hoping that the simple pricing and its slick apps can be the difference. Bundlers like YouTube need to make tough decisions about which networks to include, otherwise they'll end up with the same sky-high prices that are making cable less attractive.

Naturally, the wealth of content available on YouTube is also integrated so after watching a show viewers will see links to related videos, perhaps from your favorite team's YouTube channel.

Subscribers will also get a DVR with unlimited cloud storage, as well as access to all YouTube Red Originals. The online TV space is quickly becoming crowded, with even traditional cable providers preparing to launch their own streaming plans.
