It seems like many more people are looking to cut the cord and ditch cable based on the recent report from CNBC. It says that YouTube TV has over 300,000 subscribers and Hulu’s Live TV service has over 450,000 subscribers. YouTube TV first started offering services back in April 2017 and Hulu’s Live TV started in May of 2017.
Both Google’s YouTube and Hulu are both looking to capture an audience that are wanting to switch to a more personal content offering and not wanting to pay for channels that they don’t watch. Both companies are pushing into new markets at a fast rate as they’re attempting to compete with Dish’s Sling TV with around 2 million subscribers and AT&T’s DirecTV Now with about 1 million subscribers. While streaming competitor Netflix has 17 million subscribers.
