YouTube TV is a movie and movie streaming service that uses the clear and direct interface of YouTube.
Available on smart TVs, streaming boxes, computers, and mobile devices, it includes local broadcast channels, basic cable networks, and original YouTube Red Web broadcasts. YouTube TV will soon be sold via Verizon Wireless and Fios accounts, thanks to an agreement signed between the platform and the telecoms. Pricing details, including those related to discounts, are not yet available.
In the summer of 2019, YouTube TV changed the “Now Playing” section of its user interface. Adjustments include larger image thumbnails, progressive fast forward, and a “More to Watch” section with recommendations for other content.
