Over 40 Channels to Watch on YouTube TV
Currently, YouTube is providing the service in New York, Los Angeles, the San Francisco Bay Area, Chicago, and Philadelphia. They have yet to report on additional cities.
A majority of television viewers tend to want to skip advertising. With YouTube TV, they have reported the following options:
- Live TV: Like with traditional TV, you can’t fast forward through ads while watching live TV. However, if you pause a show, you can fast forward until you catch up to the live version of the program.
- DVR: You can record a program by adding it to your Library. This means that all airings—including upcoming airings and reruns—will be recorded automatically. You can typically fast forward through ads on recorded programs once they’ve aired on live TV.
- Video on-demand: Many networks provide recent episodes of shows, movies, and more on-demand. If you’ve recorded a program that’s available on-demand at the time you’re watching, in some cases the on-demand version will be played back instead of your recording. You typically cannot fast forward through video on-demand ads.
- YouTube videos: If you’re a YouTube Red member, you won’t see ads on any YouTube videos in YouTube TV. If you’re not a YouTube Red member, you will see ads on YouTube videos, which allows us to support the creators of those videos.
