YouTube is launching a new streaming service, and sports fans might want to take a look into it.

This afternoon, YouTube announced a new venture: a $35 per month, cable-free, TV streaming service. Called "YouTube TV," it will become available in the United State sometime in the next few months, according to CNBC.

Why would sports fans be interested? Well, YouTube TV will apparently contain a handful of major sports networks, including ESPN, FS1, BTN and the SEC Network.

In total, here is the full list of sports channels to be included:

    • ESPN
    • ESPN2
    • ESPN3
    • ESPNU
    • FS1
    • FS2
    • BTN
    • SEC Network
    • NBCSN
    • FOX Prime Ticket
    • Golf Channel
    • CSN

    The entire channel list can be seen in the picture below.

    The Turner Networks are not going to be included in this package, so sports fans would miss out on some NBA action plus the 2018 NCAA Tournament.

    As more and more people opt for cord-cutting and consuming games and programming in non-traditional formats, it will be very interesting to see how YouTube TV fares.

    You can go to TV.YouTube.com to be notified on when the service will debut.
