YouTube TV App Officially Launches for Apple TV

YouTube this morning teased that its YouTube TV Apple TV app was "coming very soon," and "coming very soon" apparently meant this afternoon.

The YouTube TV app is now available for download from the App Store on the Apple TV, where it is featured prominently in a banner.

YouTube TV's new Apple TV app comes just in time for Super Bowl LII, which is set to take place on Sunday, February 4. YouTube also recently expanded to Roku devices, presumably with the aim of luring new subscribers who want to watch the Super Bowl.

The YouTube TV service, which is priced at $35 per month, offers subscribers access to television shows on ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC, the CW, Disney, ESPN, FX, USA, and dozens more.

YouTube TV boasts more than 40 channels, including live sports and news. It also offers unlimited DVR storage space and allows subscribers to access their shows from anywhere in the United States, plus it includes content from the $9.99 per month YouTube Red service.

I’ll try it again in 2026, by which point advertising will hopefully have been dragged behind the barn and punched repeatedly in the grandma.

If it's $9.99 I would consider, $35 never! Or does this include Netflix, Prime and HBO?

Pretty sure the commercials are part of the live tv stream and not additional ads on top of them.
