According to YouTube, the YouTube TV service offers the most markets with access to four live local broadcast feeds from ABC, CBS, FOX, and NBC. Along with these live local feeds, YouTube TV features more than 50 networks like ESPN, AMC, USA, and FX, plus it includes cloud DVR support and multi-person access.

Along with expanding to additional markets, YouTube TV is also gaining support for Newsy and the Tennis Channel, new channels that are available to all subscribers at no additional cost.

YouTube TV first launched in April, but it was initially limited to the San Francisco Bay Area, Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia, and Chicago. It expanded to additional cities in July, and will expand again "in the coming weeks" to 17 markets like San Diego, Salt Lake City, Indianapolis, Milwaukee, and Denver.

YouTube TV is priced at $35 per month.

Tried it for a bit earlier today. Cancelled after five minutes:
1) Video resolution maxes out at 480p if using multiple monitors due to HDCP garbage.
2) Nothing is available at 60FPS.
3) Video compression is regular low-bitrate stuff, exactly like you'd experience on regular YouTube.
4) Web UI tries to do too much and doesn't make good use of screen space.

What about commercials?
Is commercial free like Cable use to be?
I'm assuming you still see commercials on some regular tv program. Which makes me think cable is an overpriced, considering all the commercials we watch in every shows.

I'm on the trial now - Not bad.
I think the EPG they have and how it shows you little previews of what's on right now is pretty awesome.

That said, I want an Apple TV app in addition to the current offerings. Anything I'm paying for that's TV style content I, and others in the house, need to be able to just fire up on the ATV with the remote and no other hassle.

You can use ChromeCast or AirPlay.
Oh cool! When did they make it so I can use my Apple TV remote to control AirPlayed apps?

They did this on purpose. If you look at video content viewing habits of the next generation. You will notice most is consumed on mobile devices.
Meh. I’m a gen-exer. I don’t wanna watch episodes of SNL on my phone while out with friends... I wanna watch it on the comfort of my sofa, on my huge UHD tv. For someone to have “TV” in their app's name but not support devices like the AppleTV is pretty moronic, IMHO.
