Currently the service is in testing or beta phase, YouTube Live TV is only available in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco Bay Area, Chicago, and Philadelphia. YouTube representatives have established that the service is coming to more cities soon with more channels in the pipeline.

How to Watch YouTube Live TV from Region

YouTube like other IPTV providers doesn’t maintain a very strict stance over unblocking videos and channels through unblocking software. The ideal way to unblock YouTube TV and sign up for it is with a VPN service, as we do with other services. Do remember that even though we need a VPN service to unblock YouTube Live TV, the VPN must offer servers from the cities listed above.

  • Sign up for any of the VPN services listed below (Or your provider of  choice that has a server in the cities mentioned above)
  • Download the respective VPN app (or OpenVPN if the provider supports it) on your device/computer
  • Connect to a server in the cities listed above that Youtube TV works in.
  • Voila! You should now be able to access the service easily.

To determine the ideal VPN for YouTube Live TV I browsed through the server lists of only the best streaming VPN providers and found the following as the best choices.


Hong Kong based PureVPN is one of the oldest & reliable VPN services today, with over a decades experience delivering privacy services. PureVPN has it all including a wallet friendly price, apps, servers across the world, superstar support, business services, streaming servers and a range of tunneling protocols to choose from.

If you wish to unblock YouTube Live TV with PureVPN the provider offers servers in the following US cities:

  1. Los Angeles
  2. Chicago
  3. New York
  4. San Francisco

*PureVPN does not provide the number of servers in each city.



Based in the British Virgin Islands, ExpressVPN is an icon of the VPN industry powered by one of the fastest server infrastructures in the world. The provider offers a huge server network across the USA with streaming optimized servers located in:

  1. Chicago
  2. Los Angeles
  • New York

Apart from its excellent server network ExpressVPN offers some brilliant features including cutting edge apps (Win/Mac/iOS/Android), unlimited bandwidth, SmartDNS service, servers in 95 countries, and you can use the service on up to 3 devices at a time with one account. ExpressVPN may be expensive but remains one of the best VPN services in the world.


USA based IPVanish is possible one of the best options to watch YouTube’s Live TV service from anywhere in the world. Primarily due to its vast server network within the US, allowing users to easily unblock streaming services like HBO Now, Netflix, HULU and others with blazing speeds (not that blazing though now). IPVanish servers to unblock YouTube TV are located in:

  1. Chicago (39 Servers)
  2. Los Angeles (36 Servers)
  • New York (34 Servers)

The self-proclaimed first top tier VPN in the world does offer an attractive offer with excellent price, superb apps (Win/Mac/iOS/Android) with a dedicated streaming option, tier-1 server infrastructure (basically it means high speed servers), gaming support and much more.


VyprVPN is a revered name in the VPN industry with over 15 years of experience serving the networking & privacy industries. VyprVPN is usually known for its super speed gaming server, but offers optimized streaming servers for subscribers as well.

VyprVPN offers the basics with its powerful VPN network including apps for all major OS, signature Chameleon protocol, exclusive gaming support, but, remember VyprVPN is a very expensive service.
