      YouTube reveals users watch a BILLION hours of video a day | Daily Mail Online

      • Milestone is a result of YouTube's recommendations algorithms
      • Represents a 10-fold increase since adding personalized suggestions in 2012
      • YouTube announced it will unveil its TV streaming service in the near future
      • Will be similar to Dish's Sling TV and start at $30 a month for a 'skinny bundle'


      YouTube has unveiled its much anticipated TV service - called YouTube TV.

      The $35-a-month TV service will package a bundle of channels from the broadcast networks and some cable networks.

      It will have a so-called 'skinny bundle' composed of Fox, ABC, CBS and NBC, along with associated channels like Fox News, ESPN and Bravo.

      The base package will contain about three dozen channels.

      HOW IT WORKS

      In total, YouTube TV gives you access to more than 40 networks.

      You can watch YouTube TV on any screen—mobile, tablet or computer—and YouTube TV works on both Android and iOS.

      A cloud DVR goes with you, so you can stream your recordings on any device, whenever and wherever you want.

      Every YouTube TV membership comes with six accounts, each with its own unique recommendations and personal DVR with no storage limits.

      This will be a US only service of a mix of traditonal US broadcasters.
      HBO,CN nad AMC though will not be part of this.
      It will be geoblocked with some further controls. It will have dedicated app on mobile and smart tv, so will not be through the existing youtube app.
      There is no intention in the near future for anything like this in the UK.

      Interesting extra on this service is a cloud dvr with unlimited storage!

      Sure it's for the USA at this time, but it is possible with such a high viewing figure, well that's how the article is pushing things, I can see someone wanting to introduce it over here.

      As for the Daily Fail they are including more and more articles that really aren't suitable for the UK readership. I think that they are trying to cash in on the US readership when it's a paper based in the UK. I'd love to see their server figures but just how many US people have heard of it?
