All about YouTube TV
As promised, the first quarter of 2018 is seeing YouTube’s live service entering the streaming devices. With a focus on broadcasting these on its own, YouTube TV does not intend adding on other networks soon. It would rather provide access to major TV channels such as Disney, CW, FX and much more and reach out to a personalized audience.
