You can share your monthly online cable subscription with up to five other people.

Did you know that a $35-a-month subscription to YouTube TV gets you access for your friends and family, too? Google lets you share your membership with up to five people at no additional cost. You can easily create a family group and manage it as you need, though you can only do so from the web. Here's how.

  1. Go to https://tv.youtube.com/?settings=personal.
  2. Under Account, click Set Up to get to your Family sharing settings.
  3. You'll be taken to the Family sharing page where you can start inviting people to your group.

When your friends or family members open the invitation in their inbox, they'll be asked to sign in with their Google account to complete the setup. Afterward, they'll be able to access YouTube TV through a desktop browser at tv.youtube.com, or through the mobile app on Android or iPhone with their login credentials.
