With these over the top cable alternatives, what happens with the local channels when you travel. Do you still get your home market due to your account settings? Do you get the local city's version, assuming they are one of the supported markets?

I pretty much see this being the main way people consume TV in the future. As much as people claim to want a la carte, I think more people prefer a single app and interface for all their channels instead hopping between each network's app. Also, the content providers force the bundles on the distributors. You want NBC? You have to take USA, SyFy, MSNBC, etc.

My exp. with YouTubve TV is that you have access to the basic service no matter where you are. I had to sign in within the NYC metro area when I registered for the service, and I can access "live" service from any of the supported markets. If the live TV channels aren't available, or I travel outside of the supported markets, I still have access to the YouTube TV on-demand movies and tv shows, which is plenty.
