Google and YouTube are receiving a lot of hype over the new YouTube TV subscription service. It’s $35 per month and gives you access to over 40 live streaming networks like ABC, ESPN, Fox, Disney Channel and several others. Yet, there is already a major player in the TV streaming game: Sling TV. In fact, Sling starts at just $20 per month. While YouTube TV is taking its sweet time launching initially in major cities only, Sling TV is available almost everywhere in the United States.
Rumors had suggested that YouTube had aspirations to launch its own streaming TV package, which would see it stream traditional TV content as well as its online-focused content.
Live streaming is a big deal these days, and while YouTube has not been a stranger to the phenomenon by any means, its rollout for mobile has taken a bit longer than some might have expected.
Generally, I like the YouTube app on the iPhone and iPad. But there are new things in iOS that YouTube just doesn’t seem to want to adopt. The chief of which being Picture in Picture mode. But there’s more. If you don’t like the YouTube app’s UI or the fact that you can’t force a default resolution for all videos, check out the apps below.
YouTube has announced that it is bringing its live streaming service to the core YouTube app for iOS. Users will see a “big red capture button” that will start their broadcast instantly and allow real-time chat with fans.
Finding new videos on YouTube, considering the sheer amount of content that’s present on the platform, can be daunting.
Given enough time, it looks like everything is eventual. Even when two companies were at odds only a few months ago.
YouTube isn’t a partner for T-Mobile’s Binge On feature, but the video-centric company says that the Magenta Carrier is downgrading its video quality anyway.
