#YouTubeTV looks like a Steal for $35: They Have all My Channels. Might be Time to Finally #CordCut

It seems that YouTube TV should have cable companies quaking in their boots.
The $35 per month service, which launches in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco Bay Area, Chicago and Philadelphia with other regions to follow, will let you stream ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC and the CW. That’s a coup for Google, as competing services like Dish’s (DISH) Sling TV and Sony’s (SNE) PlayStation Vue either offer only some of or none of those broadcasters.
Outside of those channels, you’ll get Fox Sports and its FS1 and FS2 affiliates, ESPN and its various offshoots, CBS and NBC’s sports channels … you know what, let’s just say there are a bunch of sports networks. There’s also Syfy, Bravo, FX and FXX, E, Disney Channel, Fox News, MSNBC and CNBC and a slew of others.
The channels on their list are pretty much the only channels I watch. It also includes 6 user accounts and access to an unlimited space DVR. You also get to watch all of this content from any device which makes the $35 a month seem like like a pittance. It doesn't seem to have HBO but you can get HBO Go for $15 a month add on so you can get your fix of Game of Thrones.
