YouTube prepping paid virtual cable bundle like Sling TV’s

YouTube is expected to unveil its paid virtual cable bundle at a press event Tuesday, sources told The Post.

One source close to the product said the channel line-up is very similar to Dish’s Sling TV, and has a broad range of cable channels on offer for between $30 to $40 a month.

YouTube has been working on offering users a way to access digital versions of established TV channels. Already in the market are Sling TV, Sony PlayStation Vue and AT&T’s DirecTV Now.

The Google-owned platform — best known for skateboarding cats and music videos — is hosting a media event today at Chelsea Market in Manhattan.

It has not said what the event is but The Post has learned it will unveil its own cable bundle.

Hulu, owned by 21st Century Fox, Disney and Comcast, is also prepping to launch a virtual cable bundle at a similar price.

YouTube, headed by Susan Wojcicki, said earlier this week it is serving a billion hours of video a day.
