PSA: YouTube TV is getting Turner channels starting tomorrow Feb 14th (TNT, Adult Swim, TBS, CNN, Cartoon Network, truTV, and Turner Classic Movies)

+20 Deal Score
20,482 Views
In a welcome move to cord cutters, starting Feb. 14, YouTube TV users will be able to stream TNT, Adult Swim, TBS, CNN, Cartoon Network, truTV, and Turner Classic Movies, in addition to key existing channels like ESPN, ABC, USA, FX, Fox News, E!, and the CW among others. YouTube TV is also beefing up its sports offering. Users will be able to stream nationally televised NBA games, NBA All-Star weekend, NBA Playoff games, MLB Postseason games, the PGA Championship, and UEFA soccer. It is also adding NBA TV, the league's 24-hour network, and MLB Network owned by Major League Baseball.

Do all these added services come with a catch? Why yes, of course. Users have to sign up for YouTube TV before March 13 to get in at the current rate of $35 per month. After March 13, any new YouTube TV subscribers will pay $40 a month.
The new markets getting YouTube TV include: Lexington, Dayton, Honolulu, El Paso, Burlington, Plattsburgh, Richmond, Petersburg, Mobile, Syracuse, Champaign, Springfield, Columbia, Charleston, Harlingen, Wichita, Wilkes-Barre, and Scranton.

Do they still offer a free trial month and/or free Chromecast with first paid month?

Someone explain to me why you are a cord cutter if you don't get cable but still end up paying for cable TV streaming? It's pretty much the same thing!
$35 a month as opposed to $150 a month and you get the basic core of channels, free DVR, On Demand, etc. Should I keep going?

and no crazy price increases every year from local cable operator because they are the only ones available in the town.

Game changer for me- some of those channels were the only ones holding me back from dumping cable. Youtube tv is the only streaming service in the area that comes close to providing all the local channels.

Awesome, just in time for March Madness which is usually televised on TNT, TBS, and truTV (in addition to CBS).

Whatever OTT service that gets local sports first will win... Only thing holding me back since such channels are not available OTA.

I think it's about flexibility and choices.
For a very long time, you had one choice, the company that installed the cable at your house.
And they knew it. Innovation? why? they HAVE to pay them! Ridiculous price increases? Again, it's not like you have a choice. There's a problem with the service you're paying so much for? How does a service call early next month sound?
The hatred is deep, and cutting the cord is as much about waving a middle finger at the company that screwed you for DECADES.
On top of that, ~$44 month for the same channels, an unlimited VCR and portability is a competitive price.
So now that you finally have a choice, why stick with the company that cared so little about you for so long?
