And the service can be used on multiple devices as well as streamed to a TV via Chromecast. Will the many young viewers who watch YouTube videos actually consider paying for a streaming service to see more conventional TV? Google's Chromecast devices are now the only ones supported by YouTube TV, which also includes TVs with Chromecast streaming built-in.

YouTube TV is launching in the nation's largest metro areas-New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco Bay Area, Chicago, and Philadelphia-with more United States markets coming soon.

We'll have more on YouTube TV as the roll out continues and we, uh, get to play with it a little more. Subscribers can get on demand access to all their favorite television series, and watch live sports from the NBA, MLB, NFL, and NCAA.

YouTube TV offers an unlimited cloud DVR option, allowing users to record endless amounts of programming, and gives families up to six individual accounts in the same package. With that in mind, Google is now offering a free Chromecast to subscribers after their first month's payment, while supplies last. Other channels, like Sundance Now and Shudder, will also be available soon for an additional fee.

This means that for those living in other cities/states in the USA, you guys are out of luck for now although YouTube does plan to expand to more markets in the future. Those on the fence can try it out with a one month free trial. For $35 per month, YouTube TV will let you stream programs live from 40 channels, including the five major broadcast stations, onto any of your devices. Other networks such as AMC, BBC America, IFC, Sundance TV, WE tv and BBC World News will be added soon. The day is here at last and now YouTube TV is officially available to the cord cutting masses. "And what we were seeing on YouTube ad-supported was that TV clips were popular with our users".

YouTube has launched its live television service in limited markets.

If you're in one of the first few cities, you can take advantage of a great offer they have going on.

What sets YouTube TV apart is its cloud-based DVR with no storage cap. If you pay for a month after that, they throw in a free Chromecast, which already costs $35, so it's like another free month.
