Google raises price of YouTube TV to $49.99, adds Discovery, Animal Planet

Google raises price of YouTube TV to $49.99, adds Discovery, Animal Planet

YouTube TV offers support for 3 concurrent streams and 6 accounts per household with unique recommendations and unlimited cloud DVR storage.

YouTube has announced a $10 price hike for its YouTube TV streaming service, bringing the new monthly cost to $49.99. Even the earliest of subscribers will soon be required to pay the new $49.99/month fee.

After the addition of the Turner channels, the missing Discovery lineup became the very clear hole in YouTube TV's offerings and, to be honest, it has been a reason for many prospective users to decide against signing on for YouTube TV. The service has been unbelievably stable since day one and I've fully enjoyed cutting the cord with cable since we made the switch to YouTube TV. YouTube TV initially launched with a subscription fee of $34.99 per month before raising its price to $39.99 per month in March of a year ago. YouTube TV now includes Discovery Channel, HGTV, Food Network, TLC, Investigation Discovery, Animal Planet, Travel Channel, and Motor Trend.

Chairman Terry Duddy said: "It is disappointing to reach a conclusion that will result in no value for our equity holders". Although its 166 stores will initially continue to trade, around 50 branches were previously earmarked for closure.

The price for members billed through Apple will be $54.99 per month, it added. "Today's announcement delivers on that promise as we continue to build a new way to experience your favorite TV shows".

"We also provide complete local affiliate coverage, with local feeds from all of the four largest broadcasters in over 90% of the markets where YouTube TV is available, and three of four stations in all the rest". It's tough to say whether or not the service's long-term subscribers will consider the new channels to be a fair trade-off, especially if they have no interest in the extras to begin with.
