YouTube TV Now Covers 50% Of US Homes


In addition to the above mentioned cities, YouTube TV is now available to subscribers located in: Baltimore, Columbus (OH), Louisville, Jackson-Brunswick, Pittsburgh, San Antonio, Memphis, Nashville, West Palm Beach-Fort Pierce, and Tampa/St. Petersburg/Sarasota. Today, the company announced that the service will be available in 14 new United States markets, which means 50 percent of U.S. households have access.

Earlier this year, YouTube TV was launched but its availability was kind of limited. Put those together, and it means YouTube TV is now accessible to more than 50% of Americans homes, and they currently have the most cities where all four major networks are streaming live. Initially, Google's Internet-based TV service was limited to five areas: New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, and Philadelphia.

Almost 50 networks are available in their base package, including local affiliates in many markets, plus plenty of popular cable networks like ESPN and AMC, and local NBC Sports in 13 markets and local Fox Sports in 22 markets. The service recently added Scripps' news network Newsy, perhaps opening the door for more of its offerings. 22 markets get local Fox Sports and 13 markets get local NBC Sports. YouTube TV is available on mobile and tablets, desktop, Google Chromecast and Apple TV devices. Last month the service went live in 10 cities in the United States and we thought it would take a while for Google to continue to bring YouTube TV to additional regions.
