YouTube TV added seven more channels to its lineup today, finally bringing viewers the rest of the ViacomCBS channels promised last summer. The new channels added today are BET Her, Dabl, MTV2, MTV Classic, Nick Jr, NickToons, and Teen Nick.
YouTube TV shared the news in a tweet today.
In May 2020, YouTube TV announced the deal to add ViacomCBS owned networks to the streaming service while also raising the monthly subscription cost to $64.99. In June 2020, YouTube TV added BET, CMT, Comedy Central, MTV, Nickelodeon, Paramount, TV Land, and VH1 to its channel guide. That was the first phase of the agreement, with the second phase bringing the additional channels to the service today.
“We’re excited to launch ViacomCBS’ portfolio on YouTube TV this summer,” said Lori Conkling, Global Head of Partnerships at YouTube TV when the announcement was made in May. “Our expanded partnership delivers on our promise to offer a premium portfolio of content to our YouTube TV subscribers, as well as across the YouTube platforms.”
