A new competitor just entered the crowded race for television customers-and it's the Google-owned streaming service that scored big with amusing cat videos.

"It's live TV designed for the YouTube generation-those who want to watch what they want, when they want, how they want, without commitments", YouTube said in a statement.

So what does that mean?

Sports fans should note that YouTube TV will include major sports networks like ESPN and regional sports networks like Fox Sports Networks and Comcast SportsNet, so you can watch your favorite National Basketball Association or MLB teams.

At launch all four broadcast networks will be available - ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox - and their associated cable channels like ESPN, USA Network and FX. Unlike most competitors, the service will provide you with a cloud-based DVR, with no storage limits.

There's no shortage of streaming video services available today, and now we've got one more to add to the list.

YouTube announced on Tuesday that it will shortly roll out a subscription TV service for only $35 a month.

It will cost $35 per month and there are no contracts, so you can cancel whenever you want.

Alphabet Inc.'s YouTube is soon coming up with YouTube TV.

Although you can find a lot of relevant content on TV, there are certainly limitations to how to watch it. There are also optional add-ons for extra fees, such as Showtime and Fox Soccer Plus.

YouTube TV offers unlimited cloud PVR recording. It is a subscription service that includes movies and shows featuring popular YouTube video creators.

It is possible tostream to a regular TV set with a Google Chromecast or watch on a Chromecast built-in TV. Compared to DIRECTV NOW and Sling TV which offer only two concurrent streams.
