Rather than developing its own streaming TV subscription service, Verizon relies on YouTube TV instead. On Tuesday, the company confirmed that it intends to offer YouTube TV directly to both its broadband and mobile customers. There is currently no information as to when Verizon will begin selling YouTube TV subscriptions or whether its customers can expect a rebate if they only pay for it. Verizon says that there will be promotions for his clients, but I assume they need a bigger package with either Fios or a smartphone plan. Verizon will also promote YouTube TV as part of the package.
Verizon has previously worked with popular streaming apps. Some of his unlimited mobile data plans include free Apple Music membership. And Fios customers, for example, can now redeem Netflix for a year for free ̵
YouTube TV has increased the base subscription price to $ 50 with discovery networks. Some users were frustrated and wondered if it was worth using the traditional cable. A larger exposure through Verizon could help prevent cancellations of the more expensive monthly fee. This will give Verizon a response to the DirecTV Now and WatchTV services owned and promoted by rival AT & T.
"YouTube TV has become known for its world-class user experience that enhances the way people watch live TV today," said Heather Rivera, Global Director of Product Partnerships for YouTube. "With this partnership, we are making it easy and seamless for Verizon customers to sign up to watch YouTube TV on their mobile phones or tablets, or at home on their big screens."
If you continue to drive the path for 5G We continue to provide our customers with options and access to premium content by partnering with the best in the industry and using our network as a service strategy, "said Erin McPherson, director of content strategy for Verizon and Acquisitions. "We were the first in the world to offer commercial 5G systems to our customers and now another new product as we offer our customers access to YouTube TV on any platform."
