YouTube TV’s parent company, Google, did not make an official announcement of the expansion, confirming the news online through its YouTube TV Help Forums and via an update to its ‘Available locations’ list.

It is not specifically known what local affiliates are available in each of the 34 new markets. In certain regions, a network may only offer video-on-demand if live TV isn’t currently available.

YouTube TV is a live streaming TV service that launched in April of this year. It is not available as a standalone app for Apple TV, but the company announced in October it would release such an app “In the coming weeks”. The app has yet to be announced via the Apple TV App Store.

The service offers 52 channels including many local NBC, ABC, CBS, and Fox affiliates for a flat fee of $35 a month with no contract. Its main features include a Cloud-based DVR with no storage limits for up to nine months at no additional charge and six accounts per household. Channels like HBO, CNN, TBS, TNT, Comedy Central, MTV, HGTV, and Food Network, to name just a few, are not available on YouTube TV.

    And still no Apple TV app?

    • Brad Gibson says:

      Yes, the comment “In the coming weeks” is vague, but at least we know it’s coming instead of not coming. Hopefully, it won’t be seven months like the Amazon Prime TV app.

      Thanks for writing and reading BESTAppleTV.com, Curtis.
