NBCUniversal and YouTube TV finally reach agreement to avoid dropped channels. Both companies were previously working towards a deal to keep the NBCU channels on YouTube TV, and now they have come to an agreement.
NBCUniversal and YouTube TV Finally Reach Agreement to Avoid Dropped Channels
Just after NBCU and YouTube TV announced on Thursday about a short extension to keep over a dozen channels on the live TV service, both companies have now finalized a deal. This now means that channels owned by NBC will be staying on YouTube TV.
According to an update to YouTube’s blog on Saturday, the company says, “we are thrilled to share that we have reached a deal to continue carrying the full NBCUniversal portfolio of channels. That means you won’t lose access to any of their channels, and YouTube TV will continue to offer 85+ networks for $64.99. We appreciate NBCUniversal’s willingness to work toward an agreement, and we also appreciate your patience as we negotiated with them on your behalf.”
NBCUniversal Channels YouTube TV Users Will Still Have Access to
With the deal being reached just days after it seems that the channels will be dropped, below are the channels that YouTube users will have access to;
- Golf channel
- The Olympic channel
- Universal kids
- USA network
Regional sports network;
- NBC sports nay area
- NBC Sports Boston
- NBC Sports California
- NBC Sports Chicago
- NBC Sports Philadelphia
- NBC Sports Washington
Should the service lose the above channels, YouTube TV said it would have lowered the price by $10 per month. But since a deal has been reached, the price will remain the same. Therefore YouTube TV users will still be able to find their TV within one app without having to subscribe elsewhere in order to get coverage from properties owned by NBC.
