Can you share your YouTube TV membership?
Yes, you can. You can have up to 6 active accounts. But only 3 people can be streaming at once on any single account.
Where can you watch YouTube TV?
Phone, tablet, computer, or TV
Does YouTube TV have ads?
Yes, just like any live TV provider, it does.
Can you fast forward through ads on YouTube TV?
Here’s the answer directly from YouTube.
Live TV: Like with traditional TV, you can’t fast forward through ads while watching live TV. However, if you pause a show, you can fast forward until you catch up to the live version of the program.
DVR: You can record a program by adding it to your Library. This means that all airings- including upcoming airings and reruns- will be recorded automatically. You can typically fast forward through ads on recorded programs once they’ve aired on live TV.
Video on demand: Many networks provide recent episodes of shows, movies, and more on demand. If you’ve recorded a program that’s available on demand at the time you’re watching, in some cases, the on-demand version will be played back instead of your recording. You typically cannot fast-forward through video on demand ads.
YouTube videos: If you’re a YouTube Premium member, (previously YouTube Red), 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.
Is YouTube Premium included with YouTube TV?
YouTube Premium provides an ad-free experience on YouTube itself, not YouTube TV, and is not included with YouTube TV. It’s a separate product.
If you’re thinking about switching live TV streaming providers or signing up for one, YouTube TV is a legit option.
