YouTube TV Packages & Pricing in 2020: Channel List, DVR, Add-ons

YouTube TV

So you're considering YouTube TV as your streaming solution of choice. It's definitely worth a look. And it's also worth your time to peruse the myriad plans YouTube TV presents. The good news is it won't take long. There is but one plan for YouTube TV. One flat price. That's it.

YouTube TV costs $64.99 a month. OK, plus tax. But that's it. You don't have to figure out which channels you get with which options. Just a single monthly fee (plus tax), and you get what you get.

And, yes, that price is higher than what it used to be. YouTube TV announced the $15 price hike on June 30, and it went into effect immediately.

Just like other streaming services, YouTube TV doesn't have any contracts, so you can cancel at any point without penalty. And while it doesn't have as many channels (particularly at that price, which increased by $5 in March 2018) as some of the other services, it's still highly competitive, with local channels available through streaming, and a free, unlimited cloud-based DVR.

And if you decide to go with YouTube TV, you'll find yourself in good company. The service has more than 2 million subscribers and is basically as big as the other major players in the space.

And new in 2020 is the ability to subscribe to HBO, HBO Max and Cinemax directly from YouTube TV. HBO Max (which also includes legacy HBO) is $14.99 a month. Cinemax runs $9.99 a month.
