YouTube TV is presumed to be the second-largest live streaming service in the United States, behind Hulu With Live TV. We last got updated numbers in October 2020, when the service said it had “more than 3 million” paid subscribers. It hasn’t updated us since then, and Hulu With Live TV just announced it was back at 4 million paid subscribers.

YouTube TV costs $65 a month for the basic service, which gets you nearly 100 live (or linear) channels, including your local broadcast affiliates. YouTube TV also is one of the only services to offer any live programming in 4K resolution, though it’ll cost you an extra $20 a month. It also has the optional add-ons listed above, as well as HBO Max ($15 a month), NBA League Pass($29 a month or $200 a year), and sports ($11 a month) and entertainment ($30) packages.

YouTube TV is available on every major streaming platform, including Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Android TV, Google TV, Apple TV, various smart TV systems, gaming consoles, and in a web browser.
