YouTube TV launches in 10 new markets

Google’s OTT TV service YouTube TV expanded into ten new markets, including Dallas, Atlanta, and Washington DC .

The service is streaming live local programming from ABC, CBS, Fox and NBC. YouTube TV is available in 15 metropolitan areas across the US, making it available in over a third of the country.

YouTube TV originally launched in five cities on April 5: Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Philadelphia and San Francisco, and was first announced last February.

The company is facing competition from other OTT streaming services (which the Americans call virtual MVPDs), including Sling TV, PlayStation Vue, DirecTV Now, Hulu and fuboTV.
