Are there any plans to add the Scripps Network channels? Do they include HGTV, Cooking Channel, Travel Channel, Food Network, DIY Network, and others? That is the only thing keeping me from going with YouTube TV. DirecTV has all of those channels, but is missing the locals.


Scripps Networks Interactive was formed in July of 2008 as a spin-off from their cable network. They have locations in many major cities. They did not announce any plans for a merger. However, Google is working hard on negotiating deals with other individual networks, so that YouTube TV is constantly adding more channels.

I would suggest that you keep an eye on it if you are interested. I received several announcements of additional channels already since I started subscribing to YouTube TV.
