YouTube TV now includes new Latin channels and add-on options to expand its live and on-demand Spanish-language content.
YouTube is adding three new Spanish-language networks to the YouTube TV experience – Univision, UniMás, and Galavisión – all of which will be added to the service at no extra cost to subscribers.
The announcement came last week from Invision Communications Inc., ahead of two important events for the Latin viewership – the 22nd Annual Latin Grammy Awards premiering on November 18, and the Campeones Cup airing on September 29, and it corresponds with the start of Hispanic Heritage Month.
In addition to the three major Spanish-language networks, YouTube will also list local programming from Univision and UniMás in Los Angeles, New York, Miami, Houston, Dallas, and Chicago. YouTube TV users will also have access to Univision’s on-demand content, and be able to log into the app using their YouTube TV credentials.
YouTube TV will be one of the few streaming TV services where users can access Univision’s content, something that could give YouTube an edge in popularity within this audience segment.
In addition to these new Spanish-language networks, in the coming months, YouTube will also provide the Latin community with a new add-on option that includes networks like Sony Cine, CNN Español, Discovery en Español, Estrella TV, Cinelatino, and Fox Deportes.
YouTube hasn’t yet specified the price for the upcoming package, nor the list of its included networks. However, the price for YouTube TV’s current package of over 85 channels is priced at $65 per month.
In the coming weeks, YouTube will introduce a $6-per month separate add-on for Pantaya, a streaming service for Spanish-language movies.
