YouTube is coming out with a streaming package that could tempt sports fans to cut the chord.

YouTube’s new steaming service, YouTube TV,  will offer a package that includes the heavyweights of sports programming – ESPN and several of its affiliated stations (ESPN 2, 3, U, and News); the SEC and Big 10 Networks; Fox Sports 1 and 2; and the NBC Sports Network.
