YouTube TV offers a comprehensive streaming experience featuring live television channels from over 100 broadcast, cable, and regional sports networks. When you become a YouTube TV subscriber, you gain access to:

  1. Live broadcasts from major network channels.
  2. Exciting live sports coverage.
  3. A wide selection of popular cable and premium networks.
  4. The convenience of unlimited DVR storage.
  5. The ability to create up to 6 separate accounts, all for a single, affordable price.

You can simultaneously use YouTube TV on up to three devices if you’re subscribed to the base plan, which costs $64.99 monthly. These devices can be a mix of computers, smartphones, tablets, streaming devices such as Roku and Apple TV, smart TVs, and gaming consoles.

If you want to remove the three-device limit and enjoy unlimited streaming within your home Wi-Fi network, upgrade your base plan with the 4K Plus add-on for an extra $19.99 monthly. Along with eliminating the device limit, the 4K Plus add-on provides 4K video support and the ability to watch content offline.

You have the flexibility to watch YouTube TV both at home and while you’re away. However, there’s a requirement that you must sign in to your account within your home area at least once every 90 days. This rule is in place because YouTube TV offers specific channels based on your geographical region.
