Cord-cutters have some new options in the world of live TV streaming. In a blog post shared on Tuesday, YouTube TV announced the expansion of its Spanish-language offerings with two new plans. Subscribers can now opt for the Spanish Plan or Spanish Plus. Β 

With the standalone Spanish Plan, people can sign up to watch TV shows and films that air solely in Spanish. The plan costs $35 per month and features content from networks such as Fox Deportes, ESPN Deportes, Cine Latino, Discovery en EspaΓ±ol, EstrellaTV, Nat Geo Mundo, Cine Sony and Cine Mexicano. Viewers aren't required to have a basic YouTube TV account to sign up for this service. In honor of the launch, people can receive a discounted rate of $25 a month for the first six months.Β 

The Spanish Plus option is an add-on for YouTube TV members who want to include Spanish-language content in their lineup. It runs $15 a month and provides access to more than 25 channels. For a limited time, Spanish Plus is available for $10 a month for new users. After six months, the price increases to $15.

YouTube TV's base plan offers more than 85 live channels and costs $65 a month. The streaming service also includes DVR in its basic package, and it's CNET's Editors' Choice for live TV. Though the platform previously added Spanish-language networks like Telemundo, Univision and Universo to its base package, the addition of these new subscription plans has been on the horizon.
