re: Just FYI. YouTube tv increases to 65/month
I got the email notification. For us it goes into effect 8/18/2020. I will looking for other alternatives and will be dropping YouTube TV before that date; I'm not interested in their additional content they use to justify yet another price increase and as others have said at a time when 48 million Americans are unemployed due to this Covid-19 bull shite.

$15 increase for a few channels that have a rotation of about 5 shows/movies each that play on a loop. I like youtubeTV but at that price I may as well go back to cable.

Hulu live is my cable now since I cancelled ( been a while now at least a year ) and put a antenna on the roof for 3,5,8 etc. and still only watch a few of them, however I’m sticking with it for now cause I like to put on the tv and have a guide to browse.

I have Hulu Live, they redid their channel guide 6 mos or so back and it sucks compared to the old one. But I don't have complaints otherwise. Usually runs smoothly and I get all of the Hulu content as well.

And this is a psychotic move from YouTube TV. MTV only is like 18 hours a day of Rob Dyrdek

Ouch. Sucks to be you guys.

I never felt better when I ditched Netflix. I'm down to internet only and Amazon Prime.

Feels good...

Wasn’t YoutubeTV like $35 only 2 years ago? At this rate it will be $100 by 2022. Insane.

Why the frick? If you’re gonna add any bull shite to your package for 15$, it sure as shite better be Disney and HBO, not two channels no one gives a shite about.

It was entirely predictable that this would eventually happen. It's how cable TV works, and it will happen eventually to all of them - Hulu, Sling, DirecTV Now, etc.

It was nice while it lasted I guess. We'll be fine for a while with Netflix, HBO Now, and Amazon Prime.

re: Just FYI. YouTube tv increases to 65/month
yeah fairly predictable...There were a ton of new entrants in the streaming tv market then, Youtube just wanted to out last some of them at their price, and now its time to jack up the rate with less competition out there.

re: Just FYI. YouTube tv increases to 65/month
The bigger issue is how these individual channels are packaged to the respective carriers. Rarely can they just pay for the rights of one channel - they have to pay for the rights to a package of channels. What I liked about YouTubeTv when I first got it was it really didn't have many channels, but enough of the ones I watched to justify it. They've added channels 2 or 3 times now since I signed up an this is the second price increase. With more channels comes the need for more revenue to pay the rights for airing those channels, so I get it. But I have little desire to watch any of those 8 new channels they added, so the $15 increase is a non-starter for me. I'd watch Comedy Central every now and then, but that's about it. And their programming has gotten so bad in recent years, I'm not sure I'd watch it at all.

Not surprising. I don't have Hulu live or YT TV so I can't speak to their functionality, but cutting the chord is an economic pipe dream in the long run. Cable remains superior until streaming services can prove their long-term affordability.

What was YouTube charging before? I'm cutting the cable later this year, regardless.
