YouTube may soon show free, ad-supported TV channels


You could soon be tuning into TV channels on YouTube for free, as the feature is currently being tested with a small group of users in the US. It would put YouTube into more direct competition with the likes of Roku and Plex.

Originally reported by the Wall Street Journal (opens in new tab) and later confirmed by YouTube, the channels are collected together in a central hub that gives viewers a choice of what to watch, with various content partners signed up.
