YouTube TV

Updated Sept. 16, 2019: We've refreshed the entire channel list.

So you're considering YouTube TV as your streaming solution of choice. It's definitely worth a look. And it's also worth your time to peruse the myriad plans YouTube TV presents. The good news is it won't take long. There is but one plan for YouTube TV. One flat price. That's it.

YouTube TV costs $49.99 a month. (After a seven-day free trial. And if you're paying for it through Apple, you'll pay $54.99 a month.) OK, plus tax. But that's it. You don't have to figure out which channels you get with which options. Just a single monthly fee (plus tax), and you get what you get.
