Best of all, it's entirely free, and you don't even need to make an account to use it.

[Update: It's now live in all 10 locations] YouTube TV will be expanding to 10 more markets soon

When YouTube TV was announced a few months ago, it was off to a slow start and limited to a few markets. Our very own Ryan had to do some tomfoolery to get it to work in his hometown so he could write up his thoughts.

But as part of a slew of new announcements, YouTube has stated that the live TV service is expanding to ten more markets.
