YouTube is aiming at AT&T's DirecTV Now service, and Hulu and Sling - but there will be iOS and Android apps, as well as support for set-top products like Chromecast. Google won't be providing a massive lineup of channels, but YouTube TV will be offering up Fox, ABC, CBS, and NBC, as well as a bunch of cable channels like ESPN, Fox News, and Bravo.

YouTube TV will have an unlimited cloud-based DVR, a spiffy Google-powered recommendation system, and more. The question is: will you pay $35 for YouTube TV?
