YouTube TV adds TUDN, full of Spanish-language sports

YouTube TV today added TUDN, the channel formerly known as Univision Deportes. It’s a Spanish-language channel and is the primary home of Liga MX — the top Mexican professional league — and as well as the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League.

You’ll also find select matches from the U.S. Men’s and Women’s National Teams, as well as the Mexican National Team, and various MLS games.

TUDN is available now as part of the base YouTube TV plan, which costs $65 a month. It’s also available as part of the separate “Spanish Plan,” which costs $35 a month (it’s $25 for the first six months, though) and doesn’t require the base YouTube TV plan.

If you have your YouTube TV channels sorted in a custom order, you’ll need to manually turn on TUDN — it should be at the bottom of your list.

You’ll also be able to watch World Cup 2022 from Qatar on YouTube TV, with all the matches being shown live on Fox or FS1. Matches begin on November 20, with the U.S. opening the following day.

In addition to the aforementioned Spanish Plan, YouTube TV also has a large number of optional add-ons, including one that gets you some live content — sports, mostly — in 4K resolution. There are also a number of on-demand shows available with the $20-a-month 4K Plus package.

There’s also a dedicated Sports Plus package, various other networks like STARZ, Showtime, and Cinemax, and an additional Spanish Plus plan that adds additional Spanish-language channels.

Let's GOAAAL! @TUDNUSA is officially part of your YouTube TV lineup, and just in time to send off El Tri on November 9.

YouTube TV is the most popular live streaming service in the U.S., with more than 5 million subscribers as of July 2022. And that number almost certainly has grown since then. Google on October 26, 2022, announced in its third-quarter earnings call that “subscriber growth in YouTube Music Premium and YouTube TV continued to drive ongoing strong growth in YouTube non-advertising revenues.” In other words, folks are still signing up, and YouTube TV and YouTube continue to bring in money. Exactly how many more accounts have signed up since the summer remains a mystery, though, as Google does not routinely give updates on subscriber totals.

For context, Hulu With Live TV is the closest competitor at 4 million subscribers, followed by Sling TV at 2.2 million, and FuboTV at 1.22 million.

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

YouTube TV is the most popular live-streaming service in the U.S., with more than 8 million subscribers. Sling TV has about one-quarter of that. But it's still worth looking at the latter against the former because it does things a little differently.

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.
