This actually worked for me. It reads the location from your cellular data, not the IP address from the router. Issue, yes. But this did work for me. The key was to turn off WiFi and then Update the location.

1. From a mobile device using cellular data/Wi-Fi off, access the YouTube TV App (sign in if
required)
2. Click on the profile icon (upper right corner)
3. Select location option on the menu
4. Select Update on the Current Playback Area option
5. Give permission for the app to use location information

I'm sorry to hear you are having problems with YouTube TV. I recommend reaching out to Youtube to see if they have a solution.-Joe

Youtube TV said they assign local coverage based on  IP address.  I am on Maryland's Eastern Shore and receive the local Baltimore TV stations.  Several times my local coverage is changed to another market.  When I check the IP address, it is assigned to the other market area.  I rebooted the modem, and the local coverage returned to my home market. 

 

Is there a way to make sure I keep the same IP address or at least in the correct market?

Thank you for checking. IP addresses are dynamic and may change at any time. With that being the case, location-based services may be impacted from time to time.
