YouTube announced it is rolling out a new TV service called YouTube TV. The company made the announcement Tuesday on its blog. YouTube said the service will offer live TV streaming from ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC, ESPN, regional sports networks and dozens of popular cable networks.
According to YouTube, the new service was created to cater to the “YouTube generation” comprised of millennials and those obsessed with videos.
“But the truth is, there are a lot of limitations in how to watch TV today. Unlike online video, people can’t watch TV when they want, on any screen and on their terms, without commitments. Consumers have made it clear that they want live TV without all the hassle. They don’t want to worry about their DVR filling up. They don’t want to miss a great game or their favorite show because they’re on the go. They tell us they want TV to be more like YouTube.” The company said in a statement on its blog.
