Today YouTube added 29 new locals bring locals to markets that had previously not had any. These markets include Abilene, TX; Casper-Riverton, WY; Columbus, GA; Hattiesburg, MS; Juneau, AK; Lafayette, IN; Quincy IL; Victoria TX; and Zanesville, OH.
A few weeks ago YouTube TV announced that they went nationwide but some have argued that without locals in some markets they are not truly nationwide. Today’s additions move YouTube TV closer to a true nationwide rollout.
“Nearly two years ago, we launched YouTube TV, a new and reimagined way to enjoy cable-free live TV on your terms. Since then, we’ve been working to make sure that people in the top 100 markets in the United States can watch their favorite sports, news, and shows—without the hassles that come with traditional cable TV. Today, we’re thrilled to announce that we’re bringing this experience to the rest of the country. YouTube TV is going nationwide!” Google said in a statement on their site.
