YouTube TV has added a number of new channels to its base plan, including The Weather Channel. While it is not unusual for the channel lineup of a service to change over time, those changes are not always for the better with some adjustments resulting in channels being dropped instead of added. Fortunately for YouTube TV subscribers, that’s not the case this time around.

YouTube TV only has one main plan to choose from, making the overall selection of channels the same for all subscribers – outside of those that opt to add more through the company’s selection of add-ons. In total, the base subscription provides access to more than 85 channels and costs $64.99 per month. YouTube TV has both added and removed channels from its lineup in the past, and the price has continued to increase.

YouTube TV has confirmed the addition of five new channels to its lineup. The new additions are Comedy.TV, G4TV, Justice Central, Recipe.TV, and The Weather Channel. The announcement was made on social media and confirmed that all of these channels are available to YouTube TV subscribers starting today. Furthermore, there is no price increase associated with the improved channel lineup.

With the five new channels available, YouTube TV subscribers have more choice than ever before. This is also at a time when both fuboTV and Hulu Live TV have increased the cost of their base plans to $69.99 per month. Although Hulu did also bundle Disney+ and ESPN+ subscriptions in with the higher price, which may decrease the overall cost a household pays if already subscribing to the additional services and a live TV service.

Still, providing YouTube TV doesn’t increase the cost in a similar way in the near future, the additional channels further add to the value on offer with a subscription, and at a lower cost than some of its main competitors.
