In an event which was held in the city of Los Angeles (California, United States), YouTube has officially announced the creation of its own television streaming service.

Thus, the streaming service will not have Viacom channels, among which are some so successful within and outside United States as Comedy Central or MTV. Nor will offer content from channels such as CNN, TNT or TBS Turner Broadcasting. Also missing A + and Network, AMC Networks and Discovery Communications.
