One of the biggest reasons we left cable/satellite was paying for a bunch of bullshit channels we never watch. We got in on YoutubeTV early and were rocking the $35/month and loving it. Then we get this email...
Effective today, April 10, 2019, YouTube TV includes channels from Discovery Inc. All members will now have access to Discovery Channel, HGTV, Food Network, TLC, Investigation Discovery, Animal Planet, Travel Channel, and MotorTrend. In addition, EPIX is now available for an additional charge. Finally, we'll be including the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) later this year.
To keep bringing you the best service possible, we are also updating our membership pricing. The price for new and existing members will be $49.99/month. The price for new and existing members billed through Apple will be $54.99/month. Your core plan price will change to $49.99 on May 31, 2019, based on your latest billing information. To check on the status of your account, please go to your Settings > Membership screen for updated information.
Our bill is going up over 40%, but those "premium channels" are really worth the price hike.
I've sang YoutubeTV's praises and loved it since we joined, but officially looking for other options now.
