YouTube TV Just Went Live in 10 New Markets

Back in June YouTube TV announced 10 new markets would be added. Well, today these markets went live and include Phoenix, Dallas-Fort Worth, Houston, Miami-Fort Lauderdale, Orlando-Daytona Beach-Melbourne, Atlanta, Charlotte, Washington, D.C., Detroit, and Minneapolis-St. Paul.

Thes markets join the markets YouTube TV was already available in including San Francisco Bay Area, Los Angeles, New York City, Philadelphia, and Chicago. With YouTube TV you will get 50-plus channels, for the $35-a-month service YouTube announced in February. Now YouTube TV has announced they are rolling out to 10 new markets.

Devices

YouTube TV subscribers will be able to watch YouTube TV on smartphones, tablets, and laptop computers. You can use Chromecast or Air Play to cast YouTube TV to compatible devices.

Sadly no apps for Roku, Fire TV, Android TV and Apple TV. Google seems to be focusing on this as primarily a mobile service. Having it mobile is nice, but I still find that most cord cutters really want the ability to watch TV on the big screen. If it does launch without support for Roku, Fire TV, and Apple TV it will likely negatively impact the service.

Number of Streams & Profiles

In the YouTube blog post about YouTube TV it said you will be able to have three streams at once. You will also be able to make six profiles each with its own recommendations and personal DVR.

DVR

What may be the most attractive feature of YouTube TV is the DVR. You will get unlimited DVR storage and the recordings will be saved for 9 months. Yet there is a catch… Once the DVR version becomes available your DVR recording will be replaced by the on the demmand version.

        Yeah the YouTube TV site. I tried signing up and after the Showtime optional add on page, you press next and you get an “Oops” page.

    I will drop PS Vue and sign up for YouTube TV once it comes to Roku. But until then, guess I’m not.

    Hi Luke, love your site and for the most part the information (although most of it is surface level information), however, this is about the third time you’ve posted this erroneous information. Just sloppy reporting on your part. Alabama is NOT a part of this story. This would be easy to verify, especially after the third time you’ve made the same mistake of just copying and pasting erroneous information on this story.

    The new markets include Atlanta, Charlotte, Dallas-Fort Worth, Detroit, Houston, Miami-Fort Lauderdale, Minneapolis-Saint Paul, Orland-Daytona Beach-Melbourne, Phoenix, and Washington DC. Those markets join Chicago, Los Angeles, New York City, Philadelphia, and San Francisco, the original group.

    I’m tempted to sign up for this for the DVR until DTVN gets theirs out.

        Yes. Just saw one month free trial. I can get it since I’m in Houston, but no TCM is a deal breaker.

    almost might be worth it if they had TBS and TNT and Roku or Fire TV support…………

      They don’t have any of the Time Warner stations. Mainly no CNN. I think the giant TW sees them as a competitor to their own cable system.

    Looks like my original comment was deleted. For anyone reading this and seeking accuracy, Alabama is not part of this rollout. Apparently Luke doesn’t tolerate any posts critical of his work.

      Scott no idea what you are talking about I see no other post from you on this post. As for the Alabama that came from their original post.

    Needs big screen app but my local cable offers 45 stations most are the same as you tube tv for $5. Do they sound desperate to keep subscribers?

    Have this service for a few months. Service/Quality very good; User Interface BAD. No Guide/Listings – no easy look-ahead for multiple stations; no ability to favorite. Terrible, arbitrary design.
    If you are not a Sports Fan, it’s not really worth it. Perhaps a non-sports version for $15-$20 would be worthwhile.
    If regular YouTube can cast to Roku, why not YouTube-TV?
    Chromecast 2 is much improved over original Chromecast.
