I'm not sure that is true. I've used YoutubeTV on many slower connections and public hotspots without trouble. I found these guidelines online:

YouTube TV: At least 7 Mbps to stream one High Definition (HD) video; 13 Mbps to reliably stream HD video, even with other devices using the same network
DirecTV Now: Minimum of 12 Mbps for broadband connections to the home
Sling TV: 5 Mbps for a single stream of video content on a TV, PC or Mac; 25 Mbps for households that maintain internet use on multiple devices
PlayStation Vue: Minimum of 10 Mbps or higher is recommended for the best experience, plus 5 Mbps for each additional stream
fuboTV: At least 20 Mbps download speed to ensure a clear and consistent stream
Philo: Minimum of 5 Mbps for HD quality and 1.5 Mbps for Standard Definition (SD) quality
Hulu with Live TV: 8 Mbps or higher for a reliable, high-quality viewing experience; multiple concurrent streams may require higher bandwidth

YoutubeTV is free for a while so the best thing would be to try it with a laptop and your connection.
