YouTube TV Adds Turner Channels to Roster


YouTube TV is now offering a number of Turner channels, including Cartoon Network with such animated hits as Teen Titans Go!

In addition to Cartoon Network, YouTube TV subs are gaining access to TNT, Adult Swim, TBS, CNN, truTV and Turner Classic Movies, among other networks. The cable-free live television service, which launched last year, has also added a selection of sports content.

“For sports lovers in particular, we’ve got you covered: you now have access to March Madness and you can watch nationally televised NBA games, NBA All-Star weekend, NBA Playoff games, MLB Postseason games, the PGA Championship and soccer from the UEFA Champions League,” reads a post on the official YouTube blog. “But wait, there’s more! We’re thrilled to announce that we’re soon adding NBA TV, the league’s 24-hour network, and MLB Network, Major League Baseball’s award-winning 24/7 TV network, to the YouTube TV base package. And in the coming months, you’ll also be able to watch NBA League Pass, the league’s premium out-of-market live game service, or MLB.TV, the longest-running sports streaming service in the U.S., for an extra fee. Game on!”

In addition, YouTube TV revealed that it is expanding to all top 100 U.S. markets, and will be raising its price to $40 a month on March 13 for new members.
