When people watch TV, they tune in to live sports, breaking news, serials, dramas, and many other different types of programs. While there are a ton of content to choose from, there are limitations on how you can watch it. You simply cannot watch TV when you want and on any screen without a contract. And you certainly don’t always have access to sophisticated TV features like the DVR. YouTube TV is trying to change that.

Google officially told that the initial formation of “more than 40 networks” includes CBS, Fox, NBC, and CBS, in addition to the US and FX cable players. There are a total of 10 sports networks available, including ESPN, Fox Sports, and NBCSN.
