How does YouTube TV compare?

When choosing a cable replacement service, the biggest difference usually comes down to the type and amount of content offered at a given price. With that in mind, here's how YouTube TV stacks up against Hulu + Live TV, Sling TV, and FuboTV.

YouTube TV vs. Hulu + Live TV

As mentioned previously, YouTube TV offers a robust lineup of live sports channels nearly identical to the offerings over at Hulu + Live TV, which also starts at $64.99 per month. Unlike YouTube TV, Hulu + Live TV also includes NCAA basketball, NHL, and the English Premier League.

If you're comparing Hulu vs. YouTube TV for premium add-ons, YouTube TV may take the cake. Specifically, Hulu subscribers can choose from four premium channel options (HBO Max, Cinemax, Showtime, and STARZ), while YouTube TV subscribers can choose from 17 different selections, including Sundance Now and We tv+. YouTube TV also stands out with its MLB.TV add-on, which costs $25 per month or a one-time fee of $130 for the entire season.

YouTube TV vs. Sling TV

Potential subscribers should also consider how YouTube TV compares to Sling TV, which offers two different channel packages, as well as the option to subscribe to both for a joint fee of $50. It's worth pointing out that, like YouTube TV, some channels offered on Sling TV vary regionally across plans.

The Sling Orange plan costs $35 per month and features 32 live channels centered mostly on family-friendly content and sports coverage. Among the channels included as part of the Orange plan are ESPN, CNN, Disney Channel, and Freeform. The Sling Blue plan also costs $35 per month and features 47 live channels, including a handful of channels also available on Sling Orange.

Sling TV also offers Comedy Extra, Kids Extra, News Extra, Lifestyle Extra, Hollywood Extra, and Heartland Extra bundles, which can be added to either Sling Orange or Sling Blue and start at $6 per month.

YouTube TV vs. FuboTV

Another streaming platform competitive in the cable replacement market is FuboTV. The Fubo Starter plan costs the same as YouTube TV at $64.99 a month, but it provides access to more than 100 live channels, while the Fubo Elite plan costs $79.99 a month and features access to 153 channels. Among the channels offered as part of FuboTV Elite are the Cooking Channel, NBA TV, Revolt, Destination America, and Discovery Family, which are not currently available on YouTube TV.

While both FuboTV plans offer more channels than YouTube TV, YouTube offers unlimited cloud-based DVR storage. In comparison, FuboTV limits storage to 250 hours for the Starter plan and 1,000 hours for the Elite plan.

In the battle of YouTube TV vs. FuboTV, it's also worth noting that FuboTV offers more variety in channel bundles. Examples include the Sports Plus, Fubo Cycling, Rai Italia, and Portuguese Plus bundles. However, like Hulu+ Live TV, FuboTV's premium channel add-on options are limited to three: the Showtime suite for $10.99 a month, the AMC Premiere add-on for $4.99 a month, and the EPIX collection for $5.99 a month.
