Google's streaming television service is quite affordable at a mere $35 a month. While many might jump at the idea, there is an unfortunate restriction. So far, it's only available in some markets. But, as of today, a few million more people can now access it, as YouTube TV is rolling out to 34 new areas including New Orleans, Omaha, and Tucson.

This progressive rollout is at least in part because YouTube TV tries to include some local stations for each area. That can also mean that some channels aren't available in all locations, so YMMV when it comes to the selection in your city. That also means that, if you decide to fire up YouTube TV while traveling, you might not see the same channels available.
In addition to the 33 new markets, Google has also further refined the distinction when it comes to Greenville, as the service supports both Greenville, North Carolina and Greenville, South Carolina.
The new markets are:
- Baton Rouge
- Cedar Rapids
- Colorado Springs
- Des Moines
- Ft. Myers-Naples
- Ft. Smith-Fayetteville-Springdale-Rogers (Arkansas)
- Green Bay
- Greenville (North Carolina)
- Huntsville-Decatur (Alabama)
- Jackson (Mississippi)
- Little Rock
- New Orleans
- Paducah-Cape Girardeau-Harrisburg
- Portland-Auburn (Maine)
- Roanoke-Lynchburg (Virginia)
- South Bend-Elkhart (Indiana)
- Springfield (Missouri)
If you're in one of those areas, and you've been waiting for YouTube TV to land, go ahead and check it out. There's even a free trial. Still no Adult Swim, though. 😢
