Verizon Partners with Google to Provide YouTube TV to its Customers
Through a new partnership with Google, Verizon is working to bring YouTube TV to its wireless, 5G Home and Fios broadband customers nationwide. On Tuesday, Verizon announced its forthcoming plan which will allow customers to subscribe to YouTube TV directly through their services. Although specific details in terms of availability and pricing have yet to be revealed, Verizon has said there will be “unique, high-value YouTube TV promotions” to come.
“YouTube TV has become known for its best-in-class user experience that enhances the way users watch live TV today,” said Heather Rivera, YouTube’s global head of product partnerships. “With this partnership, we’re making it simple and seamless for Verizon’s customers to sign up to enjoy YouTube TV on-the-go on their mobile phones or tablets or at home on their big screen devices.”
Verizon has formed relationships with a number of streaming services in the past. Several of their data plans include a free Apple Music membership while Fios customers receive a free year of Netflix by signing a two-year agreement. Now, Verizon appears to be gearing up for the “5G Revolution” equipped with content able to withstand what’s to come.
