What is Youtube TV?
YouTube TV is a paid video streaming service that Google introduced in 2017, allowing users to watch live TV from major broadcast/cable networks without using cables. YouTube TV is available in nearly every US state. There is no easy solution for FireStick users to watch YouTube videos. Installing YouTube TV on Amazon FireStick, however, has some workarounds.
Owing to the falling out between Google and Amazon earlier in 2018, the YouTube FireStick app had to be removed from the Amazon store. Yet then the two internet giants came to terms and YouTube is now freely available via the Amazon Store. There’s no doubt that YouTube is an amazing media source and I am glad to see it back on FireStick.
What makes me even happier is that the FireStick feature on YouTube TV is now officially available in the Amazon App Store. The YouTube TV app can be enabled anywhere on FireStick and used.
What is the Cost of Youtube TV?
YouTube TV, like YouTube Premium, is also a paid subscription package that can be canceled at any time if you are not happy with the program. Now it’s costing $40 a month. It allows for a maximum of 6 accounts per household. And, each member has its username and personal DVR library. The channels will stream up to a maximum of 3 members at the same time.
You can add channels with YouTube TV for just a few dollars a month, too. Many of these alternatives to a-la-carte include:
- AMC Premiere Rs. 375/month

- SHOWTIME – Rs. 825/month

Features of Youtube TV
Here is a list of some of YouTube TV’s creative or interesting features:
Unlimited DVR Storage: Users can record as many shows as they want and hold up to 9 months of recording.
Cable-Free: You can watch your favourite live TV channels everywhere you go since there is no need to attach long cables or wires to watch channels on your TV.
Flexibility: YouTube TV is an excellent option for anyone who regularly relocates, say at least once a year or so. Today, each time they don’t need to search for cable TV providers, they move to another community or state.
Stay Protected With a VPN
Typically the free streaming software, addons, and paid IPTV services that you use are hosted on unsafe servers. Your IP Address is logged in without a VPN. Your IP address points back to your location and identity, compromising your privacy as well as your protection. A VPN will allow you an anonymous Internet connection.
This would prevent the Internet Service Provider, creators of app/add-ons, government agencies, and any third party from logging into what you are accessing. VPN among cord-cutters is common because of their blazing fast speeds. It’s important to use a fast-paced VPN because we stream large HD files. Having one who doesn’t hold records on what their subscribers do online is also important.
So, you get the official YouTube on Fire TV and FireStick apps that way. This app connects directly with your YouTube account and carries all of the YouTube videos you’d like to watch, including all of your channels, playlists, and even the history of browsing.
