The past few years, we have seen the birth of some of the first cord-cutting TV services like DirecTV Now or PlayStation Vue. Today, Google has announced its own TV service that incorporates about 40 live channels for cord-cutters who want more from their lives after cable.
YouTube TV will offer live streaming from ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC, ESPN, along with some local channels and dozens of popular cable networks. You also get a DVR system that works totally on the cloud which you can stream, so you’ll never have to worry about running out of storage space. YouTube Red is also included so you can watch YouTube’s exclusive content and browse YouTube with no ads.

Finally, each membership comes with six accounts for the $35 per month with no commitments. Every account will have its own unique recommendations and personal DVR with no storage limits. The only limit of the subscription is that you can only watch up to three DVR streams at once. Kind of a stupid limitation, if you ask me. Maybe Google will think about removing this limit down the line.
What do you think about YouTube TV? Would it get you to switch from your cable company?
