YouTube TV Channel List

YouTube TV Channel Guides

Our YouTube TV channels lineups help keep track of their amazing live TV channel selection.  New stations are added frequently so we recommend updating your list every few months.

We offer three YouTube channel guides as printable PDF files.  They are free to download.  These channel listings are up-to-date and well organized, being arranged by channel number and color-coded by genre.  High quality TV station logos and emojis also make it easier finding channels.  Finally, we also rank the top five networks based on our own opinion.

For best results when printing, use thicker paper with a glossy or matte finish.  If you’d like us to print for you, just let us know.  We’ll also bind it in a fancy blue linen-weave protective cover (“hardcopy” image below).  Thoughtful gift!

YouTube TV Channel Counts by Genre

We counted and double checked the YouTube TV list of live channels.  On their website, they advertise “over 85 [base] channels”.   However, we found there are in fact 118 base channels.  With another 81 available add-ons, the total comes to 199 live (linear) TV stations.

Of the 199 total channels offered by YTTV, 41 are sports (21 base + 20 add-ons), 49 are movies and 17 are in the “family/children’s” category.  Only 10 are international and these include TYT, NBC Universo, UniMás, Univision, Galavisión and Telemundo.  No digital music stations are available, however, MTV and VH-1 are.


Which streaming service has PBS?

YouTube TV and DirecTV Stream are the only streaming providers that carry local PBS stations.

Is YouTube TV Any Good?

In our unbiased opinion, YouTube TV is the best streaming TV provider.  They offer the most live stations and comes cheaper than Hulu, Sling, Philo and DirecTV Stream.   The average cost per channel is $0.55 for YTTV, which is lower than those and about the same for Fubo TV and Vidgo (however these two have less stations).

Stay tuned for our upcoming “Master Streaming Channel Guide”, which will compare all major IPTV providers in a head-to-head analysis of channels and pricing.  Coming January 2022!

YouTube TV offers all major networks in addition to sports, children’s and specialty movie channels.  So, “cutting the cord” does not mean losing access to your favorite live channels.  This includes ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox in addition to CNN, ESPN and more!
