YouTube TV Announced
In couple of months YouTube will be launching their own TV streaming service in US (Other countries probably to follow, but probably will have much more lacking package in general). This will be priced at 35$ a month with 6 accounts (3 can view at same time) which includes ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC & others – i believe WWE was something that i saw on other article too.
- This will also give you the ability to view YouTube Red Originals for free, im not sure will it make YouTube ad-free as well (I sure hope so with that price). As an European i don’t have very high hopes of getting the service any time soon or having the same bundle of channels with amazing tv-series, its rather premium price but i would probably be willing to give it a shot.
- Potentially YouTube might take a different stance on people who create content around TV-series (Reviews etc.) when it comes to footage, but this is just a theory
- Terms of revenue for normal partners i don’t see much changes, unless they give ad-free service to these people.
