Google’s Over-The-Top Unplugged Web TV Service Will Carry CBS

cbs_logo_promo_1024pxAccording to The Wall Street Journal Google’s upcoming internet television service dubbed “Unplugged” will carry CBS, after an agreement was made between the two companies.

The anticipated (but still pending) web TV service would launch early in 2017, according to sources. If it does, it will likely exist on the YouTube platform, which also offers services such as YouTube Red and YouTube’s paid movies.

CBS would be the first major network to sign with YouTube “Unplugged,” and may be followed by content providers such as NBCUniversal and Walt Disney Co., and 21st Century Fox.

Sources say the Google/YouTube product would cost somewhere between $25 and $40 per month for a base package.

The service would follow CBS’s own over-the-top streaming service CBS All Access, as well as Dish’s Sling TV and Sony’s PlayStation Vue services.
