YouTube TV raising its monthly price from $50 per month to $65
quote:

YouTube TV has announced that it’ll be sharply raising its monthly price from $50 per month to $65 as the company starts to offer eight of ViacomCBS’s channels, which are available today: BET, CMT, Comedy Central, MTV, Nickelodeon, Paramount Network, TV Land, and VH1.

The new price takes effect today for any new subscribers, while existing customers should see it on their next billing cycle.

The $15 increase in price marks the latest price hike for YouTube TV, which was $35 per month when it originally launched. The price was first raised to $40 per month in early 2018 as it added Turner networks (including TBS, TNT, CNN, Adult Swim, Cartoon Network, truTV, and Turner Classic Movies). Costs went up again in 2019 to $50 per month when YouTube TV added Discovery’s lineup of networks. And now, with the addition of the aforementioned ViacomCBS channels, it’s getting its biggest price leap yet, up to $65 per month.

Per the original announcement of the new channels, YouTube TV is also slated to get BET Her, MTV2, Nick Jr., NickToons, TeenNick, and MTV Classic in the future, although they’re not part of today’s launch.

In a blog post announcing the new price and channels, YouTube’s VP of product management Christian Oestlien sympathizes that the increased cost is difficult for some of its members, but that the “new price reflects the rising cost of content and we also believe it reflects the complete value of YouTube TV.”

I saw that on the tech board. At this point I'm paying the same as cable prices for TV and internet. I might as well go back. The circle of life

So you cut the cable and now your paying the same price you were paying for TV but now you also got to buy the internet connection with it to stream it.

Well my kid wishes we had Nickelodeon so the extra $15 won’t be hard to swallow I guess.

I thought the whole purpose of YouTube TV was to have less channels rather than pay for stuff you don’t watch. It sucks to pay $15 more for channels you don’t even want.

As opposed to not having internet?

I started using it when it was $35. That was only 2 years or so back too.

Except it’s still vastly cheaper than any cable on the market and you can instantly cancel service

If this were your cable bill hiking prices, your options would be much more limited

I would highly suggest you guys buy PIA for $40.00 and then download and stream whatever content you want

What?

Pretty sure I could easily get a cable package with more channels for 65/mo or less.

They should have offered it as an available add-on but I bet Viacom said no fricking way to that idea.
