YouTube Starting Streaming TV Service

Mashable notes that Youtube TV is now still a little wonky however, there are possibilities to inspire a whole new-gen of viewers to actually pay for television, and advertisers appear eager to give it a shot.

Google aims to lure subscribers with more sophisticated program search, personalized recommendations and a more fully featured online DVR than rival services offer.

With the vast amount of data available to YouTube, it should be interesting to see if they can truly target this segment and if there is a wider appeal, rather than just those who have made a decision to break away from the likes of Comcast.

Users can also sign up for Android app of the YouTube TV from the play store, then get logged in into your VPN on the phone. Hulu plans to launch a similar service later this year. (Trust us, if you spend a whole day binging, it's going to happen.) And while you might be tempted at this point to return to Netflix's sweet, warm embrace, YouTube TV has an on-demand aspect that lets you pull up a dozen movies whenever you'd like. The service will expand to other USA markets. For instance, Mukesh Ambani's Reliance Jio which entered very recently in the Indian telecom market has launched free-of-cost data services under its promotional offers. The rollout is limited for the time being to five metropolitan areas: New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, and Philadelphia.

The email also pointed to new machine learning systems that will learn about which videos promote hate; a rapid response of several hours for flagged videos; new settings that, by default, set a higher level of brand safety for ad locations; account-level controls to exclude specific sites, channels or video; and more subject classifiers to fine-tune content exclusion. DirecTV Now currently has no cloud DVR option, although it's said something will be announced in the near future.

Not that long ago, if you wanted to watch cable TV programming, you had to sign up for a pricey, long-term commitment to a service from one of the satellite companies or your local cable or telephone provider.

But creatively, YouTube has done a stellar job of showcasing TV in a new way, for the mobile generation. With 1 billion monthly visitors to YouTube, "it's just so much bigger than the others". The service includes a cloud DVR with unlimited storage, although recordings will expire after nine months.

YouTube is giving users a free one month trial, and will also provide users with a complimentary Google Chromecast after their first month's payment - while supplies last.

"YouTube Go" will allow users to share videos with nearby people.
