YouTube TV: This is what YouTube's television offerings offer

If you are a German YouTube user in the United States, you will automatically be offered YouTube TV, as the offer is called, as long as the Internet access is established with an American IP address.

However, YouTube TV is not yet widely available in the United States either. On a website, the provider reveals the regions in which the service is currently available. Once booked, the content intended for your own account can then be used anywhere in the USA.

As a rule, the region in which you are currently located is automatically recognized based on the IP address. However, you can also choose a different location, whereby YouTube indicates during the registration process that it is possible that the process can only be completed when the customer is online again via the home Internet connection.
