With August almost over now, Manhattan gets set to welcome the festive season with its annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade. Set for its 92nd edition, the Parade will start at 09:00 AM on 22nd November 2018 from 77th Street and Central Park West and will end at Macy’s Herald Square. The famous big balloons and floats will yet again give Manhattan’s sky the look it loves. The look over three million people gathers to get a glimpse of. Not just that, the marching bands, hundreds of cheerleaders and dancers, and tens of Celebrities performing their best live make the Parade all the more enjoyable. Though it aims to give children the perfect start to their festive season, it also holds so many reasons for the adults to get in.
With so much on offer, the Parade started getting televised since 1939 on NBC and CBS in 1948. With the world now moving on to the internet, Macy’s too have moved the Thanksgiving Parade online. In association with Verizon and YouTube, Macy’s has started streaming the Parade live via YouTube TV. Verizon had cameras installed all throughout the route of the parade that gave a 360° view telecast to the viewers. However, not many people are aware of how to get access to YouTube TV and get going with the 360° live stream. To help people with that, here is the complete guide for all the viewers hoping to watch the 92nd Macy’s Thanksgiving Day via YouTube TV.
What Is YouTube TV?
YouTube TV is a paid MVPD streaming subscription service available only to the viewers in the United States. YouTube TV offers broadcast to a long list of channels including the top five major broadcast networks in the US. Apart from that, it also provides some exclusive content via YouTube Premium but at an additional cost.
How To Sign Up & Use YouTube TV?
YouTube TV goes well with almost all platforms including Ruku, Android, iOS, and Chromecast. It’s the best for mobile users and has a very easy to browse user interface. It apparently will require you to signup after you get it installed on your device. Here are the steps you’re supposed to follow to do that.
Step 1 – You can simply log in with your Google Account and get started with YouTube TV.
Step 2 – Next up, you’ll have to select your location in the United States. If you’re not in the United States, you’ll need to get a VPN installed as well.
Step 3 – With just one package available, you’re merely supposed to select it and move on to the next screen.
Step 4 – After that, you’ll be given an option to select other networks that will cost around $15/month. However, since we’re concerned only with watching Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade, we can avoid that.
Step 5 – Now you need to select your payment mode and make the payment to make YouTube TV yours for the next one month at least.
