YouTube has finally announced its long-rumored online television service that doesn’t require a cable subscription. Known simply as YouTube TV, it features local broadcast networks and channels like ESPN for $35 a month.
Interestingly, YouTube TV will be its own app, reflecting a “mobile first” approach. Features include a cloud DVR with unlimited storage, machine learning-powered recommendations, and the promise of service reliability. These features will also be available through the web and traditional television sets.
