Alphabet Inc Takes One More Step Toward Becoming a TV Powerhouse

The irony is that YouTube TV may well get the growth it’s seeking sooner than anybody expects. Late last year a Parks Associates survey determined that the nascent YouTube Red was consumers’ seventh-favorite over-the-top subscription service. Not bad for a newcomer that’s not even really trying.

The kicker: Yes, Netflix, Prime from Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) and then Hulu claimed the first, second and third spots, respectively. In the fourth spot in terms of streaming television share, though, was MLB.TV. Yes, the same MLB.TV that will soon be annexed into YouTube TV.
