Location requirements & how to turn on location permissions

When you sign up for YouTube TV, you'll be asked to share your home zip code. We may also ask you to confirm your location via your device location permissions. Doing so will make sure you get the correct local networks.

YouTube TV uses your internet connection to find your location and offer you the correct local content. If we can't find where you are, you'll get an alert that YouTube TV doesn't have access. You'll be asked—either by your web browser, or mobile device—to allow YouTube TV to identify your location. Select Allow.

Trial

New subscribers are eligible to sign up to try out YouTube TV. With a trial, you get access to over 85 channels offered in the Base Plan during your trial period. You can also sign up to try extra networks, like HBO Max or Spanish Plus, before adding these to your YouTube TV membership.

When you start your trial, YouTube TV will authorize your credit card with a small fee. Your financial institution will get an authorization request from us, and the fee will be reflected in your account. This authorization is required to make sure your credit card is active. This amount will be automatically removed from your account once we confirm the card is active (your financial institution can specify when this action will happen). YouTube TV does not support purchases made with prepaid credit cards.

  • For a YouTube TV Base Plan or Spanish Plan, trial lengths can vary. Trials for extra networks have separate sign-up and billing. You can sign up to try add-on networks in your YouTube TV account Settings.
  • If you cancel during your free trial, you'll lose access to YouTube TV (including any add-ons) immediately upon cancellation.
