Google TV Now Offers Over 800 Free Live TV Channels On Most Devices




Earlier this month, Google TV announced a partnership with Tubi, Plex, and Haystack News to offer over 800 live channels for free built into Google TV. With this move, Google TV is becoming a major player in the work of free ad-supported live TV streaming.

Now these channels have started to go live on Google TV devices, bringing a huge amount of free content to its owners. This was first spotted by 9to5Google.

With this move, you will now find on the Google TV home screen, an improved Google TV Live tab. In there, you will now find over 800 live channels for free on Google TV. These channels will come from deals Google reached with Tubi, Plex, and Haystack News.

“We’re also launching free built-in channels from Google TV that you can watch without even downloading or launching an app.  In total, you can now browse over 800 channels and premium programming, including news channels from NBC, ABC, CBS and FOX.” Google said when this was first announced.

You will find this new experience on the Chromecast with Google TV along with TVs that run Google TV from Sony, TCL, Hisense, and Philips. Android TV users will get this new update later this year on eligible devices.

There is no word on what Android TV devices will be eligible for this update.
