YouTube TV adds three Spanish-language channels, with more options to come

YouTube TV announced today that it’s added three more Spanish-language options to its channel lineup. Added at no extra cost are Univision, UniMás, and Galavisión. All three are available today and should appear in your channel list shortly if they’re not there already.

(If you’re using a custom order for your channels, you’ll most likely need to enable the new channels in the edit screen, only available on the web at tv.youtube.com/settings/liveguide. Click Custom > Edit.

The streaming service also announced that a new Spanish-language add-on bundle will be available in the coming months. It’ll include networks like Sony Cine, CNN Español, Discovery en Español, Estrella TV, Cinelatino, Fox Deportes, and more. YouTube TV said it will share a full list of channels included — as well as the cost — close to launch.

Coming up before that, though, is the addition of Pantaya as an add-on network. It’ll cost $6 a month and bring “the best and latest Spanish-language movies and exclusive original series, all on-demand.” Pantaya will be available “in the coming weeks,” though YouTube TV wasn’t any more specific than that.

YouTube TV now has more than 85 live channels at the ready, including local affiliates from ABC, CBS, Fox, and NBC in most of the United States. The streaming service costs $65 a month and includes support for up to six profiles on a single account, plus unlimited cloud-based recording.

YouTube TV last reported that it had more than 3 million paid subscribers in fall 2020, though it didn’t get any more specific than that, nor has it updated those numbers since then. It’s possible that in that time, it has surpassed Hulu With Live TV, which announced 3.7 million paid subscribers at parent company Disney’s most recent earnings call.

What is YouTube Music? Everything you need to know

YouTube is one of the most popular online destinations for video, but it's also one of the premier places in the world to find music. It's no surprise, then, that Google went and rolled all that music content out into a dedicated music app called YouTube Music. The app offers music and podcasts and has free and premium versions.

If you're wondering how YouTube Music compares to other music streaming services like Spotify, Tidal, or Apple Music, it really depends on how frequently you rely on YouTube to search for music and how important music videos are to you. In this article, we'll give you all the information you need to make an informed decision.

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.

YouTube tells creators to start labeling ‘realistic’ AI content

YouTube is taking steps to try to help viewers better understand if what they’re watching has been created, whether completely or in part, by generative AI.

“Generative AI is transforming the ways creators express themselves -- from storyboarding ideas to experimenting with tools that enhance the creative process,” YouTube said in a message shared on Monday. “But viewers increasingly want more transparency about whether the content they’re seeing is altered or synthetic.”
