CBS To Join Rumored YouTube Live TV Service

YouTube has picked up another broadcast partner for its still rumored TV service first mentioned earlier in the year. CBS signed on to provide content for the service, according to The Wall Street Journal. Like other services, customers would get access to content for a price—often $9.99.

Google is said to be wrapping up talks with Fox and Disney meaning the YouTube service would get a number of popular channels such as FX and ABC. Variety reports that Google has some work to get something going with NBC Universal and will probably not feature NBC channels on the service at launch.

Google is working on content for its YouTube Red service as well, so it looks poised to have something for all areas of entertainment: live TV, music, premium user content, and gaming. The live TV service is expected to launch early next year.
