You’ll find some Google TVs in our list of the greatest TVs, if you look at it. The reason for this is that Google’s smart TV platform has a fantastic user experience and a tonne of free channels, with over 800 new ones introduced only in April 2023. It is currently getting even better.
Over 25 additional free TV channels have been added by Google to its Google TV and Android TV products as of today. Since they are already integrated into the Live tab of its user interface, you don’t even need to sign up for one of the top free streaming services to use them.
Focus of the Free Channels
Offerings from the BBC and Lionsgate studios, including TV programmes and films like Top Gear and Baywatch, are the focus of these new free channels. With the inclusion of the additional channels you can access by joining up for Tubi, Plex, and Haystack, that raises the total number of free channels available on Google TV without taking any more steps to over 100. That’s a significant victory for fans hoping to avoid paying the recently increased streaming service fees.
Naturally, if you do have some of the top streaming services, subscribers may access them on the Google TV interface as well. But if you’re trying to save some money, you’ll have plenty of free stuff to pick from now that earlier episodes of Top Gear and Baywatch have been added alongside programmes like Westworld, Law & Order: SVU, and The Walking Dead.
Another Significant Development
Aside from all the free TV, Google TV will now make it simpler than ever for NFL Sunday Ticket members to view out-of-market games on Sundays. This is the second significant development. This is due to Google’s integration of NFL Sunday Ticket into Google TV, which is owned by Google and will serve as the new home of Sunday Ticket for the 2023 NFL season. You may access games and highlights directly from the home screen, so to speak. Even more games will be added to your Live tab so you won’t have to look for them in a different app.
Of course, access to Sunday Ticket requires payment. Right now, access to NFL RedZone costs an additional $339 on top of the $299 membership fee for YouTube TV users. If you don’t want to sign up for YouTube TV, you can also subscribe to Sunday Ticket through YouTube Primetime Channels for a little bit more, but it appears that Google TV integration into the Live tab is only available to YouTube TV users.
And TCL is offering $200 off NFL Sunday Ticket when you buy an eligible TCL TV with Google TV if you want to save money on your NFL Sunday Ticket subscription and are interested in a Google TV. So benefit right away before it’s too late.
