NBCUniversal and YouTubeTV in agreement to avoid dropped channels

After YouTube TV and NBCUniversal announced a "miniature" expansion to put more than a dozen channels on the live TV service on Thursday, YouTube TV and NBCUniversal say they've finalized a deal — which means That the NBC-owned channel will remain on YouTube TV.

According to a Saturday update from YouTube's blog, "We are thrilled to share that we have reached a deal to continue to house the full NBCUniversal portfolio of channels." "This means you won't lose access to any of their channels, and YouTube TV will continue to offer 85+ networks for $64.99. We appreciate NBCUniversal's willingness to work toward an agreement, and we Also appreciate your patience as we negotiated with them on your behalf."

Just days after a deal made it look like the channels may be dropped, YouTube TV users will still have access to over a dozen channels, including:

  • NBC
  • Praise
  • CNBC
  • I!
  • golf channel
  • msnbc
  • oxygen
  • Sify
  • telemundo
  • Olympic Channel
  • Universal Kids
  • Universo
  • USA Network

Additionally, regional sports networks:
  • NBC Sports Bay Area
  • NBC Sports Boston
  • NBC Sports California
  • NBC Sports Chicago
  • NBC Sports Philadelphia
  • NBC Sports Washington
  • SNY

YouTube TV had said that if the service lost the channel, it would reduce its prices by $10 a month. But with a deal, the price will remain the same — and YouTube TV users will still be able to find their TV within an app without needing to subscribe elsewhere to get coverage from NBC-owned properties.
