How To Cancel Your YouTube TV Subscription

This guide explains how to cancel your YouTube TV subscription or pause it if you’d like to think things over.

The availability of Google’s YouTube TV now reaches customers across the U.S. It has also added more and more channels. However, the service has also gotten more expensive and is currently priced at $64.99 a month.

Despite the new channels added to the streaming television service, $64.99 a month might cost too much. If this is the case for you, Google made it easy to cancel YouTube TV subscriptions.

YouTube TV is adding ViacomCBS’ family of channels along with the most recent price increase announced at the end of June, but the jump from $35, $45, or $50 (depending on when you signed up) to $65 is sure to make many reconsider their subscription. That’s almost double the monthly price that the service initially launched with.

Does the latest YouTube TV price hike have you considering ditching the service? Follow along for how to cancel your YouTube TV subscription or pause it.

Here’s How To Cancel YouTube TV From Your Smartphone, Tablet, Or Computer

  • Step 1: Open the YouTube TV app on your mobile device or visit tv.youtube.com. Here, you should see your avatar associated with your Google account. Tap on this icon to move to the next step.
  • Step 2: You should now be in the Account menu within the YouTube TV app. Sign in to whichever Google account is associated with the YouTube TV subscription you wish to cancel. When you’re ready, select “Settings.”
  • Step 3: You should now be in the Settings menu. Here you will find a handful of items to help you maintain your account. You will now want to tap on “Membership,” located at the top of the list.
  • Step 4: At the top of the Membership menu, you will find information about your monthly television and add-on subscriptions. Directly under the YouTube TV selection, you will see a button “Deactivate membership.” Tap on this button to move forward.
  • Step 5: Before you can progress forward, Google will ask you why you’re canceling. You have to make a selection before moving to the next step. Hit the “Next” button after you choose one of the options.
  • Step 6: Finally, when you’re sure that you wish to cancel your membership, you can tap or click “Cancel YouTube TV.” If you change your mind, you can hit Never mind.

YouTube will send an email to you confirming the cancellation. The message will include details about how much longer you’ll have to access the television service.

Google will delete all of your saved programs after 21 days, but YouTube TV will remember your account preferences. If you decide to reinstate your membership, the service will know which shows you previously recorded.

However, if you want to think things over before canceling your account, YouTube allows you to pause your plan for up to 24 weeks. There could be the possibility of pricing tiers arriving for YouTube TV, so pausing may be a useful option.

How To Pause Your YouTube TV Membership For Up To Six Months.

  • Step 1: Visit YouTube TV On The Web.
  • Step 2: Head To Settings.
  • Step 3: Look For “Deactivate Membership.”
  • Step 4: Cancel The Membership.
  • Step 5: Share the reason why you’re canceling your YouTube TV account, and then click ‘CANCEL MEMBERSHIP’ one more time. All done!

You’ll get a cancellation confirmation email that lets you know how much longer you’ll have access to YouTube TV.

Here’s What Happens When You Cancel Your YouTube TV Account.

When you cancel YouTube TV, you will still have access to it until the end of your payment period. After that date:

  • You will no longer be able to access add-on networks. You can’t add any add-on networks without a membership. Learn more about adding and removing add-on networks.
  • All recorded programs in your library will expire after 21 days. However, YouTube will save your library preferences (e.g., shows, sports teams, and events that you’ve added) if you want to re-sign up later.
  • If you choose to restart your YouTube TV membership later, you may not be eligible for promotional prices and may not have access to previously recorded programs.
  • Google may store limited information (such as your home zip code) for billing and fraud prevention purposes.
