We're thrilled to announce that we're soon adding NBA TV, the league's 24-hour network, and MLB Network, Major League Baseball's award-winning 24/7 TV network, to the YouTube TV base package.

As reported by Engadget, YouTube is expanding upon their service once more by adding several channels from the Turner network including TNT, TBS, CNN, Turner Classic Movies and Cartoon Network, just to name a few. But YouTube says that new members can receive the $35-per-month price if they sign up before March 13. Following the expansion, it will be available in the top 100 U.S. markets, covering more than 85 percent of United States households.

The new markets where YouTube TV is now available are: Honolulu; Lexington, Ky.; Dayton, Ohio; El Paso, Texas; Burlington, Vt.; Plattsburgh, N.Y.; Richmond, Va.; Petersburg, Va.; Mobile, Ala.; Syracuse, N.Y.; Champaign, Ill.; Springfield, Ill.; Columbia, S.C.; Charleston, S.C.; Harlingen, Texas; Wichita, Kan.; Wilkes-Barre, Pa.; and Scranton, Pa.

Authorities-who believe Cuesta was at one point tied up-have yet to provide a motive for the killing, and friends are at a loss. They were transported to the Santa Rita Jail where they were being held. "She knew she had to get up, and I commend that".

The service will now cost $40 per month for new members in order to accommodate the increase in programming. But the big limitation at launch was that YouTube TV was only available in the biggest TV markets in the US. NBA All Access and MLB.TV will be offered as optional paid add-ons "in the coming months".

"For sports lovers in particular, we've got you covered, " YouTube said in a blog post.

Adding these new channels to the base YouTube TV package does have a downside. Google is expanding its offering at a time when a growing number of competing services, such as Dish Network Corp's Sling TV, AT&T's DirectTV Now and Hulu, are vying to win over the growing number of viewers who are cancelling their cable subscriptions to watch their favorite shows online.
