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.

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

With so many different apps, services, and streaming platforms out there, it can be overwhelming trying to figure out which ones are right for you. And navigating YouTube's latest suite of products presents a similar issue. The Google-run video-hosting website, launched in 2005, is massively popular, with more than 400 hours of video uploaded every minute. But lately, the service's many expansions in the search for more revenue have made things a bit convoluted.

In the past few years, we've seen the launch of YouTube Music, YouTube TV, the now-defunct YouTube Go, and the one you've probably heard about most lately, YouTube Premium. If you're wondering what exactly that means, read on as we explain what YouTube Premium is, how much it costs, and whether it's right for you.

YouTube TV and Hulu apps on the Roku homescreen.

YouTube TV today announced that it's expanding its multiview feature — that is, the ability to watch up to four things at once — to more than just sports. You'll now be able to add in shows from the news, business, and weather categories, so you can binge on those things even more than you already are.

The expanded multiview options — good for up to give shows at once — are rolling out to all users over the summer, according to an email from Google.

YouTube TV password sharing — is that even a thing?
YouTube TV family sharing.

There's been a little bit of a to-do this week about YouTube TV cracking down on password sharing. Potentially. Ya know, like Netflix is doing. Except not really, or at all, probably. And that has to do almost entirely with how YouTube TV's account structure works.

First, some context. A few posts on Reddit stated that some family members — that is, not the primary account holder — were being asked to sign up to YouTube TV, despite already being authorized to use the service. YouTube TV allows for up to six family members to share one YouTube TV subscription, with one of them serving as the primary account. Those family members basically have to be anyone older than 13 who lives with the primary account holder.
