Remember when the YouTube TV streaming service was launched back in February 2017? It’s been over two years and in all of that time, it has gradually been rolled out to markets across the United States. And now YouTube TV has finally reached nationwide availability after nearly two years after launch. Better late than never I guess.
YouTube has said that the top 100 U.S. markets are already covered by YouTube TV and that it is expanding the service to 95 additional markets immediately. This expansion is enough to provide coverage in “98 percent of US households,” that’s combined with the markets where service is already available.
“That’s exciting news for living rooms, cord cutters, and cord-nevers from Bozeman to Gainesville, Anchorage to Yuma, and Erie to Topeka,” said Ben Moores, YouTube TV program manager.
While YouTube TV allows access to all four major networks in the country, they won’t be available to users in all markets. YouTube says that in all YouTube TV markets, subscribers will have access to at least three of the four major networks which include CBS, ABC, Fox, and NBC.
It may have taken them a long time, but finally, YouTube TV has finally rolled out across the US.
