YouTube TV now includes the Discovery network's channels

That's not the case with this price increase and this likely means those subscribers who have been with the service the longest, will be hit hardest this time with their monthly YouTube TV outgoing rising by $15 per month. Effectively immediately for new customers, YouTube TV subscriptions will cost $50 per month. Now, you'll be able to watch content from eight Discovery channels, including Animal Planet, Food Network, HGTV, Investigation Discover, TLC, the Travel Channel, and MotorTrend.

After the addition of the Turner channels, the missing Discovery lineup became the very clear hole in YouTube TV's offerings and, to be honest, it has been a reason for many prospective users to decide against signing on for YouTube TV. It's tough to say whether or not the service's long-term subscribers will consider the new channels to be a fair trade-off, especially if they have no interest in the extras to begin with.

YouTube TV is no longer the bargain it was when it launched in 2017. Existing subscribers will see an increase in their first billing cycle after May 13. YouTube TV also now includes EPIX. And OWN (that's the Oprah Winfrey Network) is coming later this year.

Subscribers still get unlimited cloud DVR and three simultaneous streams included. Even at $40, YouTube TV was a good deal.
