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.


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.


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.
