YouTube TV adds AMC, BBC America and more
YouTube’s streaming TV service launched just over a month ago and its limited 39-channel range was a clear drawback compared to its more established competitors. But the company is following up on its promises to add more by including seven more cable networks, including AMC, BBC America and Telemundo to its basic $35-per-month package.
Rounding out the new channels are Universo, Sundance TV, We TV and IFC, bringing the service’s lowest tier up to 46 cable channels. That somewhat trails behind the 90 you can currently get with rival service Sling TV, but YouTube TV is barely a month out of the gate. New users still get a free trial month and a free Chromecast with their first paid month, so there’s little pain in trying it out.
