YouTube TV is currently available in 29 markets, covering 50 percent of US households, and it will soon add 17 more markets.
Although Google’s YouTube TV – which offers 50 or so networks for $35 a month – launched four months ago, it’s quickly expanding across the US. Initially, Google’s Internet-based TV service was limited to five areas: New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, and Philadelphia. However, with the latest expansion, the list now contains 29 markets:
Atlanta, Baltimore, Boston, Charlotte, Chicago, Cincinnati, Columbus, Dallas-Fort Worth, Detroit, Houston, Jacksonville, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Louisville, Memphis, Miami-Fort Lauderdale, Minneapolis-Saint Paul, Nashville, New York City, Orlando-Daytona Beach-Melbourne, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Pittsburgh, San Antonio, San Francisco Bay Area, Seattle, Tampa, Washington DC, and West Palm Beach.
Is your area not included in the list above? No worries because Google will bring YouTube TV to 14 additional markets in the coming weeks, listed in full below:
Austin, Birmingham, Cleveland-Akron, Denver, Grand Rapids-Kalamazoo-Battle Creek, Greensboro-High Point-Winston Salem, Harrisburg-Lancaster-Lebanon-York, Hartford-New Haven, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Milwaukee, Norfolk-Portsmouth-Newport News, Oklahoma City, Raleigh-Durham, Salt Lake City, San Diego, and St. Louis.
After this expansion, YouTube TV will be available in 46 markets across the country, which gives more than half of US households access to the service. It will be only a matter of time until Google launches it in every US city and town that has an Internet connection. Now the question is whether the search giant will bring similar TV subscription services to countries other than the US.
