Less than a year after launching YouTube TV, Google Inc. is increasing the price of its online service for new customers to $40 per month from $35 per month.
The price will remain $35 per month for existing customers or those who sign up before March 13, the company said in a Feb. 14 official blog post, adding that YouTube TV is also expanding to all top 100 U.S. markets.
Additionally, YouTube TV is adding more channels to its lineup, including Time Warner Inc.'s TNT (US), Cartoon Network / Adult Swim (US), TBS (US), CNN (US), truTV (US) and TCM (US). YouTube TV will also offer access to NBA TV (US) and MLB Network (US) on the base package soon.
The service will also offer access to the NBA League Pass, the National Basketball Association's out-of-market live game service, or MLB.TV, for an extra fee in the coming months.
