Google TV adds over 800 free channels. How to access them


Accessing all of your streaming video content can come at a high cost – juggling different streaming service subscriptions while paying for cable. Google TV now offers 800 free channels to help reduce your streaming experience and costs.

Tuesday, Google announced a new live TV experience on its Google TV platform, which allows users to browse over 800 free TV channels in one place.

The channels come from multiple providers such as Tubi, Plex, and Haystack News, and can all be found in the Live tab. Premium programs such as news channels from NBC, ABC, CBS and FOX are also available.

If you want to access channels in other languages, this is also included. Google TV programming is available in over 10 languages, including Spanish, Hindi and Japanese, according to the blog post.

Moreover, Google is launching free built-in channels from Google TV which are easily accessible without any extra steps.

The best part is that Google TV has no subscription fees. If you have a premium live TV subscription from Sling or YouTube, you’ll also be able to access it in the Live tab, consolidating all your channels in one place.

Owners of Google TV devices in the United States, including Chromecast with Google TV and TVs with built-in Google TV from Sony, TCL, Hisense and Philips, will be able to access the experience. Android TV devices can expect a rollout later this year.
