Roughly two years after unveiling its streaming television service at a New York City press event, YouTube TV is officially available in every single market across America.
The skinny bundle service, which offers more than 60 channels (plus paid add-ons) for $40 per month, rolled out to 98% of U.S. households ahead of the Super Bowl in January, but is now available in all 210 American television markets. The last market to receive the service was Glendive, Montana, per a tweet from YouTube TV (below). Furthermore, 90% of the markets where the service is available feature local news affiliate coverage from ABC, CBS, FOX, and NBC, 9 To 5 Google notes.
YouTube TV, which offers six accounts per subscription — as well as a cloud-based DVR with no storage limit — has reportedly amassed 1 million subscribers to date, falling short of competitor Hulu With Live TV, which launched roughly around the same time and now counts 2 million subscribers.
Amid its national rollout, YouTube TV also announced a substantial hire earlier this month, appointing former NBCUniversal exec Lori Conkling to oversee global partnerships. In her new role, Conkling will lead programming and packaging strategies at the fledgling service.
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
