YouTube TV Has Finally Added Discovery Channel, HGTV, Food Network and More

YouTube's live TV cable replacement is now $49.99 per month

I know of a handful of people right off the top of my head that have decided against YouTube TV simply because of the lack of cooking shows and home improvement via HGTV and/or Food Network. The service offers live programming (including local network channels) that can be streamed from just about any device, and includes Cloud DVR functionality.

The second price rise in almost 14 months comes as YouTube expands its offering to better compete with a growing number of services, including Dish Network's Sling TV, AT&T's DirecTV Now and Hulu, which are vying to attract viewers cancelling cable subscriptions.

"We're thrilled to add the Discovery channels to YouTube TV, which has been a key ask from our subscribers", said Lori Conkling, Global Head of Partnerships for YouTube TV.

The $49.99 subscription is effectively immediately for all new subscribers, while current subscribers will see the price reflected in their next billing cycle after May 13th. And users billed through Apple will pay $54.99 per month. The service has been unbelievably stable since day one and I've fully enjoyed cutting the cord with cable since we made the switch to YouTube TV.

Anyone who signed up for YouTube TV prior to March 2018, when Google reached a deal to carry Turner channels, was paying $34.99 per month for access to the live TV service. Unfortunately, that's not the case with YouTube TV's newest price hike. YouTube TV, which has cracked the 1 million subscriber barrier less than two years after launching, is the latest frontier. OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network will be added later in the year, and EPIX is available now for an extra fee.
