YouTube TV Now Costs More, Price Increase Affects ALL Subscribers

For users of YouTube TV, the lack of Discovery Channel's squad of channels has been a bit of a black eye on the service since day one. This is due to eight new channels being added - Discovery Channel, HGTV, Food Network, TLC, Investigation Discovery, Animal Planet, Travel Channel, and Motor Trend.

And while more channels and enhanced features have been added to YouTube TV since then, the monthly cost keeps going up. Now, the price is being raised yet again, this time all the way up to $50 per month - $55 if you're billing through Apple.

"We are proud to partner with YouTube to deliver our beloved networks, talent and programming to YouTube TV subscribers", said Eric Phillips, President of Affiliate Distribution at Discovery.

The $49.99 price is live today for new subscribers, and Apple subscribers will have to pay $5 extra on top of that. The new prices are effective immediately for new subscribers, while existing customers will see the new rate on their May bill.

YouTube's Sling TV and PlayStation Vue competitor, aptly named YouTube TV, has given customers a pretty good value so far.

Of course, there are still benefits on offer that might make the appeal of YouTube TV enough to allow it to continue the momentum it enjoyed during 2018.

Even at the channel count, while the likes of DIRECTV NOW claims to offer over 40 channels, within the new additions announced today YouTube TV has pushed its channel lineup over the 70 channel marker.

YouTube TV also announced that EPIX is available for an additional charge starting this week and the OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network will be coming later this year.
