If you’ve ever been in a situation where, for some reason, you couldn’t make use of your streaming service subscription for an extended period of time and you had to pay for another. Here is the good news— YouTube TV’s announced a new feature which allows customers to pause their subscription at any time and resume it later when they’re ready to use it again. According to the services help page.
YouTube TV Help wrote in a post:
“You can cancel or pause your YouTube TV membership at any time. When you cancel or pause your membership, you’ll still have access to YouTube TV until the end of your payment period,”
“When your paused state ends, you will automatically be charged at your normal monthly price for a new month of service, and that date becomes your new billing date,” the post added.
During the pause period, neither the user nor the shared members would have access to YouTube TV and no new programme would be recorded. However, the previously saved recordings would be saved until the end of the paused state—And Users would be allowed to un-pause and resume their membership at any time before the scheduled resume date and the date of resuming would be taken into consideration as the new billing date.
How to pause your YouTube TV membership
If you want to try this out for yourself, it’s pretty simple to press pause. On the desktop version of YouTube TV, simply head to your Membership Settings, then you should see an option labeled Deactivate Membership. From here, simply click on Pause Membership and choose between 4 weeks and 24 weeks depending on how long you want the membership held. Then, simply confirm and save the information provided.
Through the YouTube TV mobile app (on Android), you can do the same thing by tapping your Profile, visiting the Settings, and then Membership tab. Tapping Deactivate Membership will bring up the same Pause and Cancel options, and pressing the latter will again give you a slider to pause the membership for up to 24 weeks.
YouTube TV has expanded its programming, adding networks like CNN, Cartoon Network, Turner Classic Movies and more—the subscription is priced at $40 per month and it comes with an accommodation of six accounts per household with personal logins, notifications and cloud digital video recorder (DVR) with no storage limits.
