When Google announced in April that YouTube TV would be a live streaming service, it was followed by a very slow rollout. Initially offering their services to the following five areas:
- Los Angeles
- New York
- San Francisco Bay
What Google promised would set YouTube TV a part from all the other live TV streaming services was that they struck a deal with all the major networks–ABC, CBS, Fox, and NBC. At $35 a month subscribers get access to CBS, which has its own live steam feed called CBS: All Access. Therefore, CBS joining forces with YouTube TV makes this a unique investment for cord-cutters.
However, not many markets have access to YouTube TV yet. Slowly, this is beginning to change. 10 more areas have added live streams. They include:
- Miami-Ft. Lauderdale
- Orlando-Daytona Beach-Melbourne
- Washington, D.C.
Yes, there are only 9 above. The tenth market would be the Dallas-Ft. Worth area. The only caveat for these subscribers is that ABC prime time shows will only be available on-demand. Everything else is the same as the rest of the areas.
YouTube TV also offers a bevy of cable network shows that belong to the ABC, CBS, Fox, and NBCUniversal family.
