You need to live in one of these areas to sign up for YouTube TV. If you live elsewhere, we’ll ask for your email address and will let you know once YouTube TV has launched in your area.

When signing up, you’ll need to physically be in your home area, or wherever you’ll most frequently use YouTube TV. This is to ensure you get access to the correct local networks. If you try to sign up outside of your home area, we’ll ask for your email address and will send you an email when you return home (if YouTube TV is available where you live) or when YouTube TV launches in your area.

Note: If you sign up in a launched area that is not your home area, you may lose access to YouTube TV. Learn more about location requirements and permissions.
