YouTube TV service goes live in five new markets in the US

YouTube TV service goes live in five new markets in the US
The last major expansion of YouTube TV dates from December, but the service suffered a few changes in the meantime, including a price hike that increased the monthly subscription to $40.

Starting this week, it appears the customers from five new locations can access YouTube TV if they pay the $40/month subscription. The following new markets have been added to the list of regions with YouTube TV coverage:

  • Burlington
  • Champaign & Springfield-Decatur
  • Columbia, SC
  • Wichita
  • Wilkes Barre-Scranton-Hztn

Residents of these regions can now check out YouTube's premium service, which now includes additional channels like TNT, TBS, Cartoon Network and Turner Classic Movies, as well as NBA TV and the MLB Networks.

In addition, it's worth mentioning that the monthly subscription offers access to various shows from YouTube content creators and YouTube Red Originals, along with DVR without storage limits.

With the addition of the five new locations, YouTube TV is now available in nearly 100 markets across the US, but the list is expected to continue to grow in the coming months.

It would be great if you can use it on your home TV. The service is an embarrassment. They should be concentrating on making it better than pushing it out to other city’s. Even on tablets it’s awful.

You can use it on your home TV in various ways: Chromecast, Android TV box (ex. nVidia Shield TV, Nexus Player, Mi Box), Roku, and built in TV apps (Samsung, Sony, etc all have their own TV apps for it). It has been great for me, so good I cut cable.

Each iteration of YouTube TV I've interacted with has been pretty good. This seems more like a YOU problem versus a YouTube TV problem. IMO, it is significantly better than the YouTube apps were until just recently. Google slacks on many apps but YouTube TV doesn't seem to be one of them.
