YouTube TV now available as a bundle with Frontier internet

Customers of internet service provider Frontier can now get YouTube TV through their plan, and at a slight discount for the first year. Frontier’s fiber internet customers can get $10 off YouTube TV for the first 12 months, making the country’s leading streaming TV service $63, plus tax. And those who have the current Frontier TV service will get $15 off for the first 12 months. It’ll be bundled with Frontier’s Fiber 1 Gig service, which costs $70 a month.

The idea is that instead of paying one company for cable TV and internet, you can now pay one company for streaming TV and internet. And it’s not the first time the two companies have teamed up — they had a $10 discount deal in 2021, too.

“Our partnership with YouTube TV makes it easier for customers to ditch cable,” said John Harrobin, Frontier’s executive vice president of consumer. “We take our position as the un-cable provider seriously and are constantly listening to consumers. Many want one source for internet and TV, and that’s what this partnership is all about. With Frontier and YouTube TV, there’s no settling for anything but the best.”

Frontier’s internet service is available in 25 states. You’ll need to check its website to see if the service is actually available at your residence, however.

YouTube TV costs $73 a month and is available nationwide, and on every major streaming platform. That includes Amazon Fire TV and Roku, which cover the two biggest platforms. It’s also available on Apple TV, Google TV, on smart TV platforms, and in a web browser. The service includes support for up to six profiles on a single account (all requiring their own Google account) and unlimited recording. YouTube TV has more than 100 channels and dozens of optional add-ons, including the ability to stream some live sports and on-demand content in 4K resolution.

YouTube TV (and YouTube proper) also will be the exclusive home of NFL Sunday Ticket starting with the 2023 season.

YouTube TV has more than 5 million subscriptions as of mid-2022.

YouTube TV just got even better on iPhones and iPads
Multiview on YouTube TV on an iPad.

If you use the most popular live-streaming service on an iPhone or iPad, things just got even better. YouTube TV — which boasts more than 8 million subscribers — just pushed multiview live on Apple's mobile devices, as previously promised.

It works basically the same way it does on a television. YouTube TV picks the programs available in multiview, and you get them all at once, with audio coming from one of the shows. Tap another, and the audio switches. And just as before, you can get multiview for sports, news, business, or weather. (Though we definitely don't recommend watching four news channels at once in an election year.) It's just in time for March Madness, which is great, though we hope you'll be able to pick your own games instead of just sticking with the multiple viewing options YouTube TV gives. This will be great come fall, though, when the new season of NFL Sunday Ticket takes hold.

What is YouTube Premium? Price, content, and more
YouTube Music

YouTube is such a common part of internet infrastructure that it's now used for everything from entertainment to recording work events to livestreaming conferences to publishing the newest music videos. But as the platform has grown, it has become more and more reliant on ads. If you're sick of ads before, during, and after YouTube videos, then you can consider paying for a subscription for YouTube Premium so you won't have to see any more ads while browsing or watching videos.

The YouTube family of products can be a bit confusing, however. As well as YouTube Premium, there are other paid services like YouTube Music, YouTube TV, the now-defunct YouTube Go, plus some free movies on YouTube you don't want to miss. But the price for YouTube Premium has changed since it launched, so it's worth taking some time to consider how much you'll be paying and whether it's worth it for you -- or even if you could save some money using options like the YouTube Premium family plan or the free trial.
