EXCLUSIVE: YouTube TV Passes Hulu Live TV for Most Local ABC, NBC, CBS, & FOX Affiliates
Prior to the expansion, the service had just over 400 ABC, NBC, CBS, and FOX affiliates. After, they now have over 750 major network affiliates. In comparison, Hulu Live TV which previously held the top spot, had just over 700 local affiliates from the big four major networks.
How The Streamable Measures Local Affiliates
We measure local affiliates by individual local channel, not by market. For instance, if WNBC is in Hartford and New York, it would count as single local affiliate.
While YouTube TV has the most overall, Hulu Live TV still has FOX affiliates in more markets. When you include The CW and MyNetworkTV, YouTube TV now has nearly 100 more local affiliates than Hulu Live TV.
The two services are now significantly ahead of the other major Live TV Streaming Services when it comes to locals.
