YouTube TV is a little different than the traditional YouTube app. For $35 a month, customers can stream national channels, such as ESPN and FX, as well as local TV stations like ABC, CBS, Fox and NBC.
All of these can be streamed to your TV, phone and computer, according to a company statement.
The app also allows DVR recordings. They are stored on the cloud without a storage limit.
YouTube also plans to launch original TV shows and movies, the company said.
To sign up, head over to tv.youtube.com for a free trial. You can download the service in Google Play stores and the Apple App store.
The act of cord cutting has been on the rise across the country, Recode reported. Pay TV subscribers lost 762,000 customers in the last three months for 2017.
In total, 1 in 5 U.S. households have dumped traditional cable in favor of streaming, Fortune reported.
