You are given the local channels where the account is set up. They stay the same no matter where you are. We get Kansas City channels in KC, TV, and when we are on vacation in Minnesota, Colorado, or anywhere else.

Not how YouTube TV works on my ROKU when set up with the instructions from YouTube TV. When I travel to the Dallas area I watch local Dallas stations on YouTube TV, not the original Orlando channels. You have to update the settings and verify with cell phone.

Well we apparently have quite different experiences for which I have no answer. I set up YouTube TV in Kansas City in June. Spent late July and all of August in The Villages and had KC local channels in both places. In addition I had Fox Sports KC, so I could watch the Royals games. Back to KC in beginning of September with no change.

Nor can I explain the difference. I follow the set-up instructions for traveling provided by YouTube TV when locating to a new area and get the local programs. Works for me.

I'll wait for a tie breaker before I switch from Directv Now to Youtube. Thanks for trying.

Therein lies the entire problem. There is no competition at the consumer level. Cable companies compete with cities and towns to provide their service without fear of competition for other cable companies. The only fear they have is from satellite dish companies and the reception is not as good or as reliable.

Take away this form of competition and let cable companies compete at the consumer level and you'd see a huge drop in prices and a huge inclusion of more channels.
