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.

More on YouTube TV

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.

The best Sling TV alternatives

Sling TV is the third most popular streaming TV service in the U.S., with about 2.3 million subscribers at the end of 2022. That number hasn't fluctuated much for a number of years, but we do see thousands come and go as numbers are announced every three months.

Nonetheless, it's worth asking what else is out there. What are the best alternatives to Sling TV?

YouTube TV finally gets the 4K Plus plan’s price right
YouTube TV 4K Plus channel.

The price of the 4K Plus add-on for YouTube TV always has been a bit weird. Technically the add-on has been $20 a month since its launch in mid-2021, but subscribers have always gotten the first year of service for half that. And that will remain true come April 2023, when the YouTube TV base plan goes up to $73 a month and the add-on changes price to $10 a month, with the first year of service at $5 a month.

That's a much more palatable price for an add-on that's absolutely an extravagance.

YouTube TV price hike is a reminder that you have to do the math
Dark theme on YouTube TV.

The news that YouTube TV — the largest streaming provider of live TV in the U.S. with more than 5 million subscribers — is getting more expensive is neither welcome nor surprising. It's just the latest price increase among multi-platform video distributors, which is industry parlance for services like YTTV, Hulu With Live TV, FuboTV, Sling TV, and DirecTV Stream. And prices for four of those five providers are dangerously close to what you'd pay for traditional cable.

But in a slightly strange turn of events, the monthly bill for some YouTube TV subscribers — myself included — actually will go down slightly starting in April, when the new rates take effect.
