YouTube TV Device Limit

You can use YouTube TV on up to three devices at once. Devices can be any combination of computers, smartphones, tablets, streaming devices (Roku and Apple TV), smart TVs, and gaming consoles.

You can watch YouTube TV at home or when away. The only catch is that you must sign in to your account while in your home area at least once every 90 days. This rule is because YouTube TV offers some channels by region.

Can I Download YouTube TV Content to Multiple Devices?

YouTube TV does not allow users to download content for offline viewing. You can only watch YouTube TV programming with an internet connection. Most other streaming services offer offline viewing, including Disney Plus, Hulu, and Amazon Prime Video.

How Many Accounts Can You Have?

You can have as many YouTube TV accounts as you wish. You’ll need to use a different email address for each account.

Is Account Sharing Allowed?

Yes, you can share your account with up to five family members at no extra cost by creating a family group. Each group member gets a DVR and can set their viewing preferences. Other members can’t access your watch history or library.

The user who creates the family group becomes the family manager. They can choose who to invite, though members must be 13 or older and live in the same country. The manager can also remove members and delete the group at their discretion. Finally, the manager can also designate other members as Parents, enabling them to approve Google Play purchases, change parental controls, and more.

When you create a family group, you can also share other Google apps and services in addition to YouTube TV.
