You Tube has launched Live TV. It's a $35 a month service enabling subscribers with a live streaming service from a number of networks, and a Cloud-based DVR with no storage limits, only a time limit.

This space is getting crowded, and I counted a dozen similar services on my smart TV. I wonder if it'll just be late to the party, but, because it's Google/youtube it'll gain traction.

YouTube Unveils Subscription Television Service
The company said it planned to introduce a new subscription service called YouTube TV in the next “few months,” offering more than 40 channels including all four major networks, Disney Channel, FX and ESPN, for $35 a month. The subscription includes the ability to store an unlimited number of programs on a cloud-based digital video recorder for up to six accounts.

As more users buy wifi enabled TVs, the cable box will fast become irrelevant.
