YouTube TV is different than regular YouTube. The best way to understand it is to think of You Tube TV as the streaming version of cable TV. For instance, it offers all of the channels you are used to getting. However, you get it at a cheaper price. And it is on a month to month contract.
Unlike its competitors, the streaming service does not have rights to any major soccer leagues. So, its mission appears to be to copy the cable TV experience but to enhance it. YouTube TV’s user experience is quite good. Firstly, you get no storage limits for your DVR, so it is easy to watch things you missed live. Secondly, six accounts are included so everyone can watch programs separately.
It is not the ideal streaming service for soccer fans, though. First, it is expensive ($64.99 per month). Second, you have to pay extra for beIN SPORTS and GolTV. Third, even then, many of the beIN SPORTS channels are not included, such as beIN SPORTS en Español and beIN SPORTS Connect. Fourth and finally, you have to pay YouTube TV $10.99 extra per month to get beIN SPORTS. That means you would have to pay $75.98 each month (before taxes) for a service that is less superior to fuboTV.
If you are not a hardcore soccer fan, then YouTube TV may be a good fit.
