Google has announced today that they will be increasing the price on YouTube TV. The price of the service is increasing up to $49.99 per month.
However, for users that get their subscription through iTunes, the price will be increased to $54.99 a month. The reason for this is due to Apple’s 30 percent cut for subscriptions.
Now, the service will be getting new channels, which is a big reason for the price increase. They will be getting Discovery networks such as Discovery Channel, Animal Planet, HGTV, Food Network, TLC, Investigative Discovery, Travel Channel and MotorTrend.
On top of that, YouTube TV will be adding the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) too. EPIX will soon be added, which can be an additional add-on for users of the service. There is no current launch date for either of those channels.
The new price will take effect as of today for new members. Current customers will see the new price change in May 2019.
YouTube TV is available on the iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, Apple TV and the Mac (via the Google Chrome browser).
