YouTube TV has now added Univision, UniMás and Galavisión to its channel lineup and plans to introduce a new premium network add-on in the coming weeks as well as another channel pack add-on in the near future. These new updates to the live TV streaming service are collectively designed to further improve subscriber access to Spanish-language content.
YouTube TV currently serves millions of subscribers making it one of the more popular live TV streaming services. Priced at $64.99 per month, YouTube TV is not the cheapest service around but the selection of channels combined with the additional features make it a good option for a number of individuals and households. However, like the price, the channel selection is never final with the service always looking to add (and sometimes remove) channels.
YouTube has now confirmed that the live TV streaming service has gained Univision, UniMás and Galavisión. The three channels were added today and are immediately available to all YouTube TV subscribers. The service also confirmed the new network additions are not resulting in any change to the price of a YouTube TV subscription.
Besides the three channels that have now been added to the base subscription, YouTube TV is also making Pantaya available as an optional add-on network in the coming weeks. Pantaya provides access to on-demand Spanish-language movies and exclusive original series and the price through YouTube TV will be $5.99 per month on top of the existing cost of a subscription.
In addition, the live TV streaming service also explained that it will be adding a new add-on in the future to provide subscribers with access to even more Spanish-language content. YouTube TV did not provide the name of the add-on, when exactly it will launch, or how much it will cost each month. However, the channel pack will open up access to channels like Sony Cine, CNN Español, Discovery en Español, Estrella TV, Cinelatino, and Fox Deportes.
