A closer look at YouTube TV

I said recently that I would be looking at live streaming services. And it's only fair for you to know ahead of time that I don't regularly use a live streaming service. If you want to know why, read my recent post about that.

For now, I'm taking a look at one of the most popular live streaming services: YouTube TV.

The service is $65/month. That's a lot of money. Even so, it's not the most expensive service.

So, what do you get for the money? A lot actually.

If you're coming from cable, and want a live streaming service, YouTube TV is probably the one that's most like cable in how it looks and works, and with the lineup. I'll use what's available in my area, and it's pretty much what you'll expect to receive. The difference are that I'll get the local stations out of Savannah, and you'll get the local stations from wherever you are.
