YouTube is getting ready to take on traditional cable companies.

The online video service plans to announce Unplugged, a live TV service streamed over the internet, according to The New York Post . YouTube is holding a press event Tuesday afternoon to unveil the details.

Unplugged, which has been rumored for months, will be similar to Dish's Sling TV and AT&T's DirecTV Now, allowing you to subscribe to a so-called "skinny bundle" of popular pay TV channels. The New York Post's report says Unplugged will cost $30 to $40 per month.

A YouTube spokesperson was not immediately available for comment.
