According to a new report, #YouTube will start offering a new live TV subscription service starting next year. This service will supposedly be known as Unplugged. It is said that the company will offer all major cable networks under this new service. YouTube is believed to be in talks with the likes of Comcast NBCUniversal, Viacom, Fox as well as CBS, so it seems like this service could be a pretty big deal when it is made official next year.
It is said that YouTube will charge customers as little as $35 per month for this particular offering, which could be a very aggressive pricing if true. Interestingly, Hulu has announced earlier today that it will also release a live TV streaming service soon, so it seems like the online cable subscription service could be picking up heat in the tech sphere.
YouTube or Google have yet to confirm this particular report, but it seems like something that would benefit the company greatly, especially after the impressive start to YouTube Red, which is the company’s ad-free YouTube service.
Would you pay $35 to watch cable television on YouTube?
