Lookout cable. Lookout satellite TV. YouTube is building a streaming subscription-based video service called Unplugged that would let customers steam a bundle of cable channels.
YouTube has supposedly been working on the product since 2012, but has ramped up efforts recently as other companies including Dish, Sony, and now Hulu, have launched or plan to deliver premium Internet TV services.
The goal is to launch Unplugged in 2017, so we’ll have to wait just a bit to see what we get. But really, what do we NEED? ESPN? The Discovery Channel during “Shark Week?” Anything else?
