YouTube Offers Subscription To Its Standalone Add-On Channels Without Purchasing A Base Plan

YouTube says it’s now giving users the chance to take on a subscription plan for add-on channels that don’t require them to sign up for the app’s $65 base plan.

There are a total of 20 channels up for grabs that you can avail yourself of easily without a sign-up. Moreover, you’re going to be given the chance to select between the likes of Showtime, NBA League Pass, and even HBO Max. Other than that, Epix and Starz are also going to be up for grabs as they’ll be rebranded at certain destinations.

YouTube TV appears to be following in the footsteps of channels like Apple TV, Roku, Sling TV, and even Amazon Prime Video. These will all be a new part of its subscriptions for standalone channels.

This particular base plan costs around $65 and is very much like a cable-style television ordeal. There are about 85 channels and you won’t be needing that for access to such channels via this service.

In addition to that, users that opt-out from this can continue to avail advantages of the features on offer by YouTube TV like unlimited DVR space, three streams taking place simultaneously, and around six profiles per home.

For a lot of people, it would be unnecessary to make such a subscription for standalone channels via services such as these when they’ve got their own apps to avail. However, you’ll be amazed to learn that this does come with quite a few benefits. And that’s true if you end up subscribing to more than just a few.

The features can be accessed via one particular app that is going to be available on several different platforms as compared to just the single standalone apps designated for Shudder and more. We also find managing all of your subscriptions using just one bill would be super useful as well.
