YouTube TV now allows users to subscribe to standalone add-on channels without having to sign up for the platform’s base plan. There are 20 channels to choose from, including HBO Max, Showtime, and NBA League Pass.
Epix and Starz, which will be rebranded in certain territories soon, are also options. YouTube TV joins Apple TV, Amazon Prime Video, Roku, and Sling TV in offering standalone channel subscriptions.
The YouTube TV base plan, which is similar to cable, costs $65 and includes more than 85 channels (the full line up will vary slightly, depending on your location). However, you will no longer require this to access MLB.TV, Cinemax, and other content via the service.
Users who choose not to subscribe to the base plan can still enjoy YouTube TV features such as unlimited DVR storage, up to six profiles per household, and three simultaneous streams.
Some may believe that signing up for standalone channels through services like YouTube TV is unnecessary because they have their own apps. However, there are some advantages, especially if you subscribe to more than one.
You’ll be able to access the services through a single app, which may be available on more platforms than standalone apps for Shudder, Acorn, and other similar services. Managing your subscriptions with a single bill could also be beneficial.
