YouTube TV add channels, but raises prices

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

YouTube TV started out at $34.99/month, though the price was raised to $39.99/month not long after. However, existing customers will see the price increase on their next billing cycle after May 13.

The price for members billed through Apple will be $54.99 per month, it added. Of course, the price hike is coming with new content, this time from Discovery, including Discovery Channel, HGTV, Food Network, TLC, Investigation Discovery, Animal Planet, Travel Channel, and MotorTrend.

YouTube's Sling TV and PlayStation Vue competitor, aptly named YouTube TV, has given customers a pretty good value so far. The service offers live programming (including local network channels) that can be streamed from just about any device, and includes Cloud DVR functionality.

However, the service's price was bumped up to $40 back in February of 2018 to reflect the new channel offerings YouTube TV has received.

In addition to live channels, YouTube TV subscribers will be able to access Discovery content through its Go platform, with access to the nine networks' streaming apps and entire library of almost 50,000 on-demand titles.

"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. I called it a "robust and modern way to watch live TV" in my review.

Update, March 28, 2019, 08:50 AM ET: YouTube TV has officially reached every U.S. TV market.

And while more channels and enhanced features have been added to YouTube TV since then, the monthly cost keeps going up.
