[NABS-L] YouTube TV doesn’t have video Description

Well, just my opinion here, but I would not cancel pay service just because it does not have audio description. There’s a lot of other good advantages, and you cannot expect everyone to have audio description. It would be good in a perfect world, but that is not where we are and it’s not what we are for several years when it comes to audio description. It’s not surprising to me at all, and I use YouTube TV and think it is a great service.

>> Well, just tried the YouTube TV app, and guess what? No video description! I can’t believe it. I believe in equal access to television. There is a secondary audio programming channel, but it doesn’t carry the video described version. Until they add the video description feature to the YouTube TV app, I have canceled my membership in the middle of the trial.
