The cable-cutter TV streaming service starts at $35 per month with no strings attached. This means that there is no contract involved and allows iPhone and now Apple TV users to stream content on their TV. It was also recently reported that YoUtube TV currently featured 300,000 paying customers.
Before today, YouTube TV app users could still stream content on their TV screens. However, it involved a rather redirecting method. You had to make use if the AirPlay functionality on your iPhone or iPad in order to stream YouTube TV content on a bigger display. Now, the operation is way more seamless as users can now natively stream content on their TV screens. This is definitely a plus for anyone who uses the YouTube TV app and owns an Apple TV.
YouTube is on its way to becoming one of the best TV streaming platforms on the market. In its attempts, the service has joined PlayStation Vue, DirecTV Now, Hulu TV and many other platforms. However, most of the TV streaming providers do not include Viacom channels. They only add a list of local channels in selected cities. Henceforth, there's still time required for the platforms to convince users to shift from traditional cable TVs to streaming services.
If you're an existing user of the service, you can simply navigate to the tvOS App Store and download the app at no charge. There will be more to the story, so be sure to stay tuned in for more.
