For an app or website (in this case both) to be successful, it requires a great customer support team, capable of answering all user questions and requests in a timely manner.

YouTube TV has an attractive interface and a novel recording feature, but it’s lacking in both channel selection and platform availability. Here are some pros and cons of Youtube Tv;
Pros of YouTube TV
- Lots of networks: YouTube TV currently shows content from 50 networks plus its own YouTube Red Originals. The networks include ABC, Fox, the Disney Channel, BBC America, Bravo, Nat Geo, ESPN, and the CBS sports network. You can also add Showtime, Fox Soccer Plus, Shudder, and Sundance Now for an extra monthly fee.
- Easily accessible: YouTube TV is easy to watch on your smartphone or tablet via the YouTube TV app. When it originally came out, it lacked a Roku app, but that has since been resolved.
- DVR: This is YouTube TV’s biggest draw. Record unlimited hours of content and store it in the cloud to watch whenever you’d like. Recorded shows are available for up to nine months. In contrast, Hulu only offers 50 hours of DVR storage and charges $20 to expand it to 200 hours.
- Multiple accounts: YouTube TV gives users up to six accounts and three simultaneous streams with each subscription. This means family members can use the same subscription to watch different content all at the same time. Many big streaming sites don’t have this option.
Cons of YouTube TV
- Big holes in the content: YouTube TV doesn’t show any MLB games, which could be a deal breaker for baseball fans. There are also no channels from Time Warner or Viacom, which means no CNN, Comedy Central, HBO, or Discovery channel, for example.
- Needs to be streamed to your TV: If you want to watch on your TV screen you’ll have to get a Google Chromecast or have a smart TV that offers Chromecast or Roku. That said, most TV streaming sites need some kind of device to share the content with your screen and you do get a free Chromecast after your first paid month.
- Limited coverage: YouTube TV is still only available in certain metropolitan areas in the mainland US (you can check the full list here). Although it does keep expanding its coverage, if you live outside of these cities you won’t be able to access it at all.
- Poor integration with YouTube: Even though YouTube TV and YouTube are the same company, YouTube videos are only sometimes integrated into the YouTube TV app.
