Back in August, we learned that Sinclair Broadcasting Group had agreed to give YouTube TV access to their ABC, CBS, FOX, and NBC Affiliates. Today Cord Cutters News has learned that this deal will now also include Sinclair owned CW and MyNetwork TV affiliates. Along with more Sinclair owned affiliates this deal will also bring the 24-hour science fiction channel Comet TV and the Tennis Channel to be added to YouTube TV.
A Sinclair Broadcasting Group told Cord Cutters News that no date has been set for when these channels will go live on YouTube TV but they did confirm that the deal is done.
In a statement sent to Cord Cutters News Sinclair Broadcasting Group said:
In August, the Company entered into an agreement with YouTube TV for all of its ABC, CBS, FOX and NBC affiliates to be carried in their respective markets as YouTube TV launches in those markets. As part of this agreement, YouTube TV will also deliver Tennis Channel to all of its subscribers. YouTube TV has also expanded its offering to include Sinclair’s CW affiliates and YouTube TV will be adding Sinclair’s MyNetworkTV stations, as well as the 24-hour science fiction channel, Comet TV.
Currently, the Tennis Channel is only streaming on DIRECTV NOW.
