How to Cancel Youtube Tv

YouTube TV is a fantastic live TV streaming service, but it might not be for everyone. Whether you’re switching to a different provider, taking a break from live TV, or simply need to cut costs, canceling your YouTube TV subscription is thankfully a straightforward process. Here’s how to do it:

Before You Start

  • Billing Cycle: Know when your current billing cycle ends. If you cancel midway, you’ll still have access to YouTube TV until the end of that prepaid period.
  • Alternatives: Have a backup ready if you want to switch to another live TV streaming service (Hulu + Live TV, Sling TV, etc.).

How to Cancel YouTube TV

On your Computer or Mobile Web Browser:

  1. Go to: https://tv.youtube.com and sign in to your account.
  2. Click on your profile picture (top right corner).
  3. Select “Settings”.
  4. Go to the “Membership” tab.
  5. Click “Manage”
  6. Choose “Cancel Membership”.
  7. Follow the on-screen prompts to confirm.

Important Note: You cannot cancel your YouTube TV subscription directly from the YouTube TV app on iOS devices (iPhone/iPad). You’ll need to use a computer or mobile web browser.

Pausing vs. Canceling

YouTube TV offers the option to pause your membership for up to 6 months. During this pause, you won’t be billed, but you’ll also lose access to the service. Your recordings and library will be saved for when you choose to resume.

What Happens After Cancellation

  • Access: You can continue watching YouTube TV until the end of your current billing cycle.
  • Refunds: You won’t receive a refund for the unused portion of your billing period.
  • Data: YouTube will retain your preferences and recordings in case you decide to resubscribe in the future.

Things to keep in mind:

  • Shared Accounts: You’ll need the primary account holder’s credentials to cancel the subscription if it’s part of a family plan.
  • Add-ons: Canceling your base YouTube TV membership also cancels any premium network add-ons you may have purchased.

I hope this guide helps! If you have any issues, YouTube TV also has a detailed help page you can reference.
