The new channels include Scripps News, the free streaming news channel that was previously available to YouTube TV subscribers when it operated under the Newsy brand. The two other channels added to YouTube TV this week are Bounce TV and Ion Television; Scripps acquired Ion in 2020.
The three channels join YouTube TV’s base programming, which costs $65 a month and includes other top-tier broadcast and cable networks owned by the Walt Disney Company (ABC, ESPN, FX, National Geographic), Warner Bros Discovery (CNN, TBS, TNT, Cartoon Network, Discovery Channel, Animal Planet), AMC Networks (AMC, IFC, BBC America, BBC World News), Fox Corporation (Fox, Fox News Channel, FS1), Comcast’s NBC Universal (NBC, Bravo, E!, MSNBC) and Paramount Global (CBS, Comedy Central, Nickelodeon, MTV, BET).
YouTube TV is available across a wide number of streaming TV platforms, including Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV and Android TV (Google TV). The YouTube TV app is also available as a free download on popular smartphones and tablets, and live channels can be accessed via the YouTube TV website.
