YouTube TV: A List Of All The Channels You Get (And Can Pay Extra For)


YouTube TV channels list updated Dec 2021

YouTube TV costs a minimum of $72.99 a month and provides access to more than 100 live TV channels. YouTube TV subscribers also have the option of increasing the number of channels included with their package by adding premium channels or the Sports Plus add-on. As to be expected, adding channels will also increase the monthly cost.

Compared to other live TV streaming services, one of the differences with YouTube TV is that there is only one base plan. While this does remove the need to choose between various channel lineups and prices, the downside is that the base plan either will or won’t work for you and your home’s live TV needs.

Knowing which channels are included with YouTube TV can help to decide whether this is the right live TV service for you and your home. For those that find the channel lineup is not quite what they are looking for, some of the more popular alternatives include DirecTV Stream, Fubo, Hulu Live TV, and Sling TV.

All of these services do cost more or less than YouTube TV and provide access to a different selection of channels. In some case, new subscribers will have the option of choosing between multiple packages and channel lineups.

  1. I did not get a “have a promotion code” tab to enter code QUHVZTAYH3HA in order to receive the 21-days free trial and reduced first month price. What do I do??

    1. Did you go through to the “What’s Included” page? On the left will be a list of all the channels and on the right there’s a box which lists the price. Underneath the price, there’s a “+” sign which expands to let you enter the code.

      For reference, if signing up on mobile, then you need to hit the bar at the bottom of the screen (where the price is shown on the “what’s included” page) to see the promo code option and the “+” sign.

  2. Can you cancel the subscription to You Tube at any time?
