With more than a billion users YouTube is by far the most visited video platform, which makes one third of the global internet users. Google recently published the fact that in just one day users look through over a billion hours of content, and YouTube reaches only via mobile devices, without tablets, more people than any broadcast or cable TV service.
As one of the first companies recognizing this huge potential Alphabet Inc. will start offering live program streaming of most of the American TV station and cable operators.
The service will be named YouTube TV and will cost 35 USD for six accounts, and will provide program access for over 40 TV channels, including ESPN, as well the original YouTube production channels, designed by users of the You Tube Red Originals.
With this service YouTube will try gain the viewers who have given up from traditional TV packages.
