YouTube’s streaming Live television service, YouTube TV has added 95 more markets and now will be available across the US. The expansion comes just in time for users to test the service for Super Bowl LIII.
The company is nearing the end of a moderately-paced expansion for the service. YouTube TV was first launched in April 2016 in just five markets and is now available in 98% of the country. The company plans to be available in the rest of the markets in the coming months. YouTube has stated that currently, it has no plans to expand the service to international markets.
YouTube TV is available for $40 per month for access to over 60 networks and Cloud DVR storage with no capacity limits. You can watch the TV on any screen – TV, phone, tablet or PCs, and can create six profiles per subscription.
“Just in time for the Big Game, you can now pair your heart’s desire for buffalo wings, chips and dip, and potato skins with the full experience of YouTube TV. That’s exciting news for living rooms, cord cutters, and cord-nevers from Bozeman to Gainesville, Anchorage to Yuma, and Erie to Topeka,” Ben Moores, program manager for YouTube TV said in a blog post.
“So, prep your game day buffet, get ready for some memorable commercials, and kick back and enjoy the award-winning cable-free live TV service people love. We’re excited and committed to continue making YouTube TV the live TV experience tailor-made for you. And to all our new neighbours and members—welcome to the family,” Moore said.
