“When we launched the service, we positioned it as a mobile-first product. A lot of that was about breaking the association with the DVR and set-top box, this hardware in the living room you have to rent that gets outdated really quickly. We were trying to get people to grok that this is TV that lives on your phone, a cloud DVR, all of the above,” Christian Oestlien, product management director at YouTube TV, told The Verge. “What we saw in practice was that the majority of our watch time was in the living room, through Cast. And the number one request we get from consumers is more options, native options, for the living room.”

YouTube TV is a live streaming service from Google. The service costs $35 for a base package that includes channels from ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox, as well as affiliated channels like ESPN, Syfy and Bravo.
