Update, January 23, 2019, 10:09 AM ET: Google announced today that its cord-cutting platform YouTube TV is finally going nationwide. Starting today, YouTube TV will cover 98 percent of the United States, with the final two percent coming soon.
When YouTube TV first launched in early 2017, it was only available in a handful of markets. The service eventually spread further out with the addition of a few new markets here and there every few months.
Today, YouTube TV becomes available in 95 new markets, leaving less than 2 percent of the country without access to the service.
It’s likely not a coincidence that this new upgrade comes only a few weeks before Super Bowl Sunday, one of the biggest nights for television of the year. Since the Super Bowl airs on network TV, subscribing to YouTube TV might be one of the easiest ways to watch the big game.
If you subscribe to YouTube TV you earn access to major network channels such as ABC, Fox, NBC, CBS, etc. You also gain access to cable networks like CNN, ESPN, SyFy, and more, with the option to pay a bit extra to access premium channels like Showtime and Starz. The entry-level price for the service is $40-per-month — likely much less than you would pay for cable service with the same features.
YouTube TV also gives you access to an unlimited cloud DVR service, the ability to add up to six users to your account, and the ability to watch TV on pretty much every device you own, from smartphones to tablets to computers to — of course — televisions.
