YouTube TV is now rolling out a new feature for subscribing to standalone add-on channels without signing up for the platform’s base plan. In some territories, consumers can enjoy HBO Max, NBA League Pass, Showtime, etc. YouTube TV is adopting competitors like Apple TV, Sling TV, Roku and Amazon Prime Video.
Previously, YouTube TV add-ons needed a basic plan that cost $65, which includes 85 channels. But MLB isn’t longer available right now. Consumers can still enjoy other features, including watching the channels in unlimited DVR space, up to six profiles per household and three simultaneous streams.
As standalone channels, consumers do not need to sign up for the basic YouTube TV app. You can access all channels with more benefits in a single dedicated app.
