@Maddie_McP

I’ve only had @YouTubeTV for about two weeks, but I feel obligated to report out that it’s amazing so far

Questions? We’re here to help.

What is YouTube TV, and what do I get with it?

YouTube TV is cable reimagined. We are a subscription streaming service that lets you watch live and on-demand TV from major broadcast and popular cable networks like ABC, CBS, NBC, ESPN, AMC, HGTV, TNT, and more.

That’s 100+ channels of local and national live sports, breaking news, and must-see shows the moment they air, all included in our Base Plan. You’ll get to record your favorites with unlimited cloud DVR storage space and share 6 accounts with your household. And if you’re looking for more flexible options, we have a few other plans.

Do you have any other plans?

We have 2 other plans in addition to the Base Plan.

Want only TV in Spanish? With the Spanish Plan, you can get the same top YouTube TV benefits like unlimited DVR space and 6 accounts – but with 30+ Spanish channels. Stream soccer, telenovelas, Spanish-language movies, and more on popular networks like ESPN Deportes and Univision.

Want to pay just for a few networks? Our standalone networks option lets you pick and choose what you pay for from a select list of networks that includes favorites like NBA League Pass, SHOWTIME®, and more. Like the Spanish Plan, you’ll still get those award-winning YouTube TV features – but only with a few networks of your choosing.

The Basics

How do I get started with YouTube TV?

We aim to make it as easy as possible to get started with YouTube TV. To start streaming, simply sign up online with your Google Account, make sure you have an internet connection and a supported device. You can then watch for free for up to 20 minutes.

Watch on your phone, tablet, computer, and TV. YouTube TV is available nationwide in the US and lets you stream live TV, including local sports, news, shows, and more.

Your Account

Can I watch YouTube TV while traveling?

YouTube TV works anywhere you have internet access in the US, with live TV offered in markets where YouTube TV is available. Your access to local networks will vary depending on which zip code you're in. Sign in from home at least once every 3 months to keep your account active. You won’t be able to access any programs on YouTube TV, live or recorded, while traveling internationally.

If you’d like to watch YouTube TV while traveling without internet access, our 4K Plus add-on allows you to save recordings from your Library to your phone or tablet so you can watch offline (some device and content restrictions apply).

Are there really no DVR storage space limits?

There really aren’t – we promise! Record as much as you want at the same time, without ever running out of storage space. We keep each recording for 9 months. Build your dream Library, and stream it anywhere you have internet access in the US.

Are shows available on demand?

Many networks have recent episodes of shows, movies, and more on demand.

Can I share my membership?

Yes, your YouTube TV membership comes with 6 accounts to share with roommates or family members in your household (ages 13 and up). Everyone gets their own login, personalized recommendations, and individual DVR Library.

Your membership includes up to 3 simultaneous streams. For an additional monthly charge, our 4K Plus add-on unlocks unlimited streams at home, so you can watch YouTube TV on as many compatible screens as you want.

Do I have to share 1 DVR Library with my household?

Not at all – your dream Library is all yours. The 6 accounts that come with your membership each have their own separate login with personalized recommendations and an individual DVR Library.

What if I want to cancel?

Not a problem – you can cancel anytime. There are no fees for canceling. We’d hate to see you go, but we’ll save your settings in case you want to restart your membership later. Please note that we don’t do refunds for partial billing periods.

If you’d like to take a break without losing recordings that you’ve saved, you can also pause your membership for up to 6 months.

Ads

Does YouTube TV have ads?

Yes. The live TV programming comes from networks similar to traditional TV broadcasts, so many of the networks we offer have ad breaks.

When YouTube videos are shown on YouTube TV, the majority of the ad revenue from them will support the creators of those videos.

Can I fast-forward through ads?

Depending on how you watch, you’ll be able to skip some ads.

Live TV

As with traditional TV, you can't fast-forward through ads while watching live TV. But if you pause a show, you can fast-forward until you catch up to the live version.

DVR

You can typically fast-forward through ads on recorded programs once they’ve aired on live TV.

On demand

Many networks provide recent episodes of shows, movies, and more on demand. Typically you can’t fast-forward through ads while watching on-demand content. If you've recorded something that's also available on demand at the time you're watching, in some cases the on-demand version will be played back instead of your recording.

YouTube videos

If you're a YouTube Premium member, you won't see ads on any YouTube videos in YouTube TV. If you’re not a YouTube Premium member, you will see ads on YouTube videos, which allows us to support the creators of those videos.

What's the difference between YouTube TV and YouTube Premium?

YouTube TV is a live TV streaming service with major broadcast and popular cable networks. YouTube Premium gives you YouTube and YouTube Music ad-free, offline, and in the background.

YouTube Premium isn’t included in your YouTube TV membership. However, if you are a YouTube Premium member, you can watch YouTube content on YouTube TV without ads.

Add-Ons

What premium networks can I add to my membership?

YouTube TV has a wide variety of premium add-ons like Max, SHOWTIME, and MGM+ to help you build out your dream TV experience. They’re available at an additional charge, but many of them offer free trials for new users.

How do I add premium networks?

Once you become a member, just go to the Membership tab under Settings to see all our add-ons. Then simply add the ones you want, or start a free trial if it’s available.

On which devices can I watch 4K quality video?

Stream select live and on-demand content in 4K with the 4K Plus add-on, available at an extra monthly charge. This special features bundle also unlocks offline recordings for available content and unlimited streams at home.

4K playback is only available on compatible devices.
