YouTube TV is adding more channels, but it's also getting more expensive

NBA All Access and MLB.TV will be offered as optional paid add-ons "in the coming months".

In addition to the networks below, which will be added to the base YouTube TV package, the service will offer NBA League Pass and MLB TV, with live broadcasts of out-of-market games in-season, for an additional fee. That's a $5 increase over the current $35/mo price.

At launch YouTube TV offered nearly 50 channels in five markets.

And the service will soon be available in over 100 markets, a huge increase over previous year.

YouTube TV's latest update also brings it to 18 new markets: Lexington, Dayton, Honolulu, El Paso, Burlington, Plattsburgh, Richmond, Petersburg, Mobile, Syracuse, Champaign, Springfield, Columbia, Charleston, Harlingen, Wichita, Wilkes-Barre, and Scranton.

Here is a quick look at YouTube TV's new Roku Channel.

YouTube TV, the company's internet TV streaming service, is expanding its programming with the addition of several Turner networks including TBS, TNT, CNN, Adult Swim, Cartoon Network, truTV, and Turner Classic Movies.

The media company's CEO, John Martin, said that the omission of Turner channels from the skinny bundle represented a "big mistake" on YouTube's part. However, for current subscribers as well as those who sign-up before March 13, $35 is your price.

Meanwhile, the price of the service for incoming members goes up to $40/month on March 13; those signed up before then continue paying $35/month.

The service also broadcasts 314 local NBC, ABC, CBS, and Fox network affiliates in various USA markets, according to Streambuzz.net and its local affiliate chart. Dish Network Corp.'s Sling TV is the oldest and also has the most subscribers, while AT&T's DirecTV Now, Hulu and FuboTV all boast more than 100,000 subscribers.
