When YouTube initially announced their ‘YouTube TV' streaming service at the beginning of last month, we did not know any official availability details.
This morning, the service launched in five major US cities: Chicago, Los Angeles, New York City, Philidelphia & San Francisco.
Priced at $35/month, the service offers access to 40 channels including NBC, ABC, CBS, Fox, ESPN and more popular cable networks.
For those looking for more premium content, Showtime is available as an optional add-on for an additional $11/month and Fox Soccer Plus for $15/month.
Each plan includes access to up to six accounts as well as Cloud DVR functionality with unlimited storage limits.
As of launch, you'll be able to access YouTube TV on newer iOS and Android devices as well as from a PC/Mac using Chrome or through a Google Chromecast, Chromecast-enabled TV or Android TV. Expanded device support is expected in the coming months.
As a limited time promo, anyone who lives in one of these five cities can sign up for the service and receive a 2nd generation Google Chromecast (valued at $35) at no extra cost after paying for your first month.
