YouTube’s standalone online TV streaming service continues to expand to more markets in the United States. The last major expansion of the service happened in December 2017 but it was also accompanied by an increase in the subscription price which is now at $40 per month. YouTube is fulfilling its promise to gradually roll out its standalone TV streaming service to more markets across the country and it has now added five new markets to that list.
Those who are based in Burlington, Columbia, SC, Wichita, Wilkes Barre-Scranton-Hztn, and Champaign & Springfield-Decatur and are willing to pay $40 can now subscribe to YouTube TV. These are the five new markets that the company has added to the list.
The A YouTube TV subscription will allow them to stream networks like CBS, ABC, FOX, NBC, ESPN, and other popular cable networks live. They will also get access to YouTube Red Originals. One major advantage of YouTube TV is that it allows subscribers to use the cloud DVR without any storage limits so they can choose to digitally record as many programs as they want to watch later. Cloud DVR functionality is offered by some other standalone TV services as well but subscribers largely have to stick to assigned storage limits.
These five new markets bring the total number of markets that YouTube TV is now available in the United States to almost 100 and it will only go up from here.
