Youtube TV Review
If we consider the content YouTube is offering with this new Streaming service and YouTube TV app, we can notice that the variety of channels is much wider than its major competitors like HBO or Netflix. However, a downside to it is its price. While the competition has a comfortable price from 5 to 8 dollars per month, YouTube TV Price is $35 a month. An amount that’s pretty difficult to digest for many. Besides from that, everything seems excellent for this service Google will be offering firstly in the United States and that plans to expand to the rest of the world.
