New YouTube TV channels are set to arrive soon. Unfortunately, if you’re a new subscriber to the video streaming service, it’s going to cost you a little bit more each month to enjoy.
The YouTube TV service is expanding its programming to include several Turner networks, including TBS, TNT, CNN, Adult Swim, Cartoon Network, truTV, and Turner Classic Movies. Additionally, YouTube TV users will soon have access to NBA TV and MLB Network. NBA All Access and MLB.TV will become optional paid add-ons soon too.
Adding these new channels to the base YouTube TV package does have a downside. Beginning March 13, the monthly price jumps from $35 to $40 for new subscribers only.
YouTube TV launched in April 2017 with five initial markets. The service is now available in over 100 locations, including the newest ones: Lexington, Dayton, Honolulu, El Paso, Burlington, Plattsburgh, Richmond, Petersburg, Mobile, Syracuse, Champaign, Springfield, Columbia, Charleston, Harlingen, Wichita, Wilkes-Barre, and Scranton. With these additions, the service will be available to over 85 percent of the U.S. households.
