Your YouTube TV subscription is designed with families in mind – you can let up to five other people use the service at no additional cost.

Each additional user can create their own personal content library, save favourites, and record TV shows. To get started adding accounts on YouTube TV, you’ll need to create a family group, and then invite other people to join the group.

Here’s how to do it.

How to add accounts to YouTube TV

1. Open YouTube TV in a web browser.

2. Click your account avatar in the lower right corner of the screen. If it slides up to the top of the screen, click the avatar a second time. In the drop-down menu, click “Settings.”
