Record or remove programs

  1. Go to YouTube TV.
  2. Next to a show, sports team or event you want to record, tap Add . All current and upcoming airings will be recorded and added to your Library.
    • If you add a program to your library while an episode is in progress, your recording will start from the time you added the program. If a rerun of the episode airs, your partial recording will be replaced by a full episode. 
  3. Next to a show, sports team or event you want to remove, tap Remove. All current and upcoming airings will be removed. Your recorded programs will be available until they expire.
Note: You can't record content from NFL RedZone just by adding a specific team, league, or game to your YouTube TV library. You’ll need to add NFL RedZone to your library so that the full 8-hour block will be recorded.

Playback options for recordings (DVR)

If you're recording a game or program, you can choose to:

  • Start your program from the beginning
  • Resume the program where you paused it
  • Watch the currently live program
  • Watch key plays (Note: check whether the stats & key plays feature is supported for the league you're watching, and on your device)

Note: If you come across a bad recording in YouTube TV, you can report it within the video player.
