YouTube TV may have found a hole in the commercial break-time continuum.

  • YouTube TV is promoting its “cable free live TV” service during commercial breaks on popular cable networks.
  • The spots typically include a more traditional style commercial first spotlighting the key features of YouTube TV.
  • Then, however, is when things get a bit different.
  • After the final title slide of the “traditional” commercial, there’s a short “commercial break.”
  • Viewers typically see a white screen with the YouTube TV logo and text reading “You’re watching…” with the current network logo “… on YouTube TV.”
  • The next line reads “Commercial break. We’ll be right back.”
  • Along the bottom of the screen the key features are against reinforced thanks to animated text.
