YouTube TV made news twice this week: once it launched the new Entertainment Plus package launched with HBO Max, Showtime and Stars, and again announced the upcoming 4K package, which includes offline downloads and unlimited concurrent home streaming. Related comments made us wonder how many readers subscribed to live TV, whether through an old cable provider or an online streaming service like YouTube TV.
Cable TV subscriptions continue to decline. In fact, the 2020 blockade seems to have further accelerated this process. You might think that all of us are staying at home, we could have used live TV as a source for watching shows, but last year, streaming was more popular than ever. Only a few readers claimed that they did not subscribe to any video streaming service.
However, live TV broadcast is another matter. Netflix costs $9-1
There are other ways to get certain limited TV access rights for free, such as Pluto TV, but the choice can be “eh”. And it doesn’t even mention that you can enjoy all the free trial versions of other services.
So, do you have a live TV subscription (cable or other)? Or did your cutting method pass the overall concept of channel and linear non-on-demand services? If you subscribe to multiple (I guess Possible), select all that apply.
