Can’t get YouTube TV where you are? Think again. With a YouTube TV VPN, you can watch YouTube TV in any US city, or even outside the US.
YouTube TV is a great TV streaming service. Here’s what you get:
– Watch popular cable and broadcast channels live and on-demand
– Live stream sports on ESPN, ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, and more
– Unlimited DVR space
– Six users can watch at the same time
– No contracts or commitments — cancel anytime.
YouTube TV is a solid cable TV alternative for cord-cutters, or anyone who likes to be able to stream TV anywhere, any time. They offer a 1-month free trial, so take advantage and try it out.

Use A YouTube TV VPN To Get YouTube TV Anywhere
The downside is that YouTube TV locations are limited. YouTube TV is only available in a handful of cities: Chicago, LA, New York City, Philadelphia, and San Francisco. That leaves a lot of people in the lurch — which is a shame, because YouTube TV does a lot of things right.
If YouTube TV isn’t available in your location, don’t fret. There’s a simple workaround to get YouTube TV anywhere — in any US city or even outside the US. Here’s what to do.
STEP 1) Sign up for a NordVPN account
YouTube TV is only available a handful of US cities. To watch the YouTube TV from any city you need to bypass their location detectors. The way to do this is with a VPN. A YouTube TV VPN will route your connection through a secure server, thus “tricking” YouTube TV into thinking you’re in an approved area. When you appear to be in an approved YouTube TV location, you’ll get instant access to everything on YouTube TV.
As long as you’re connected through a VPN, you can watch YouTube TV just like if you were in an available city. Note that you will still need to sign up for a free trial of YouTube TV, or have an active account. This is a workaround for the location restrictions only.
NordVPN is the best YouTube TV VPN we’ve found. First, it comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. So if you just need access for a short time, you can cancel and get a refund. Plus, NordVPN has the fastest streaming speeds (other VPNs can slow your connection to a maddening crawl), is super easy, works on any device, and — even better — just works with no hassle. NordVPN is a favorite for streaming TV from all sorts of restricted sites because it delivers a five-star service all around. The fact that it also has the best deal — as low as $3.29/month — is a sweet bonus.
Best YouTube TV VPNs
Using a VPN has many benefits. First, it’s not only YouTube TV’s live stream you get access to. NordVPN works to unblock virtually every website in the world: NBC, CBS, FOX, plus tons of free UK TV channels like the BBC and ITV. It also unblocks Netflix, and other streaming services (Amazon Video, Hulu, Sling TV) so you can watch while abroad. And it’s great for streaming live sports on sites and services around the world. A VPN also prevents ISP throttling. And it’s a highly recommended online privacy and security tool to prevent data theft, spying, and tracking. More about how a VPN works and what you can do with it.
STEP 2) Download the NordVPN app
After you sign up for a 30-day trial, download the NordVPN app for the device (or devices) you want to use to watch the YouTube TV. They have great apps for every device: iOS, Android, Mac, Windows, and others. You can use up to 6 devices at once with a single NordVPN account.
STEP 3) Connect to a NordVPN server to make you invisible online
Now, use the NordVPN app to connect to a secure server.
STEP 4) Start watching YouTube TV!
Voila! You can now get YouTube TV in your location. After you connect to a NordVPN server, go to YouTube TV to sign up for a free 1-moth trial. Or, if you already have an account, just use YouTube TV they way you always do. You’ll immediately have unlimited access to watch live and on-demand, on any device.
Some tips: Clear the cookies on your device/computer after you connect to a NordVPN server. If you have any location services on your device, disable those.
Hopefully, YouTube TV will expand to more cities soon, or even grant access to YouTube TV outside the US. But, until then, using YouTube TV with VPN is a simple solution. I hope you enjoy watching YouTube TV as much as I do.
