YouTube TV has officially completed its US rollout, with the company announcing that the over-the-top internet streaming service is now available in the Glendive, Montana area, the final television market in the US that had lacked YouTube TV availability.
Glendive, Montana: we couldn't have done it without you! We can now officially say that YouTube TV is available in every television market in the U.S. Welcome to the family! #WatchLikeAFan— YouTube TV (@YouTubeTV) March 27, 2019
It’s a big milestone for the service, which is now available in all 210 US television markets — up from the 195 that YouTube announced back in January. That said, not all YouTube TV markets are equal, with some areas not offering all four of the major local networks (Fox, NBC, ABC, and CBS), so you’ll want to check your zip code on the YouTube TV website to see what’s available.
The nationwide rollout also highlights one of the biggest strengths of internet-based TV over traditional cable: widespread access, with YouTube offering the same (barring the aforementioned local channels) service at the same price to everyone in the US, something that essentially doesn’t exist for regular cable TV.
